You can replace the battery
on August 1, 2011
The battery can be replaced. The light and battery assembly easily pulls out of the reflective cuff. When the assembly is out, slide the rubber housing that covers the LED and partially covers the battery, slide it off of the battery. Once the rubber cover is off of the battery you will see the metal cover that is over the battery and the two prongs of the metal cover that go through the battery holder assembly and are soldered on the back side. The metal cover does not come off. But you can bend part of the cover up and expose half of the battery. Get a screw driver put it on the opposite side of where you bent the cover up and push the battery out through where the metal cover is bent up. Slide the new battery in (make sure you put the battery in with the positive side facing toward the metal cover) and bend the metal cover back down. Slide the light and battery assembly back in the reflective cuff and you are ready to go. It is a 3 volt #2032 button shaped battery. You can get these batteries at Fry's Electronics for less than $2. This whole operation takes about a minute. Real easy. Even though the manufacturer set this up so the battery is not replaceable, it can easily be done. Like I said, this is really easy. After you have done this once, the second time will only take about 30 seconds. I hope this helps.
