These two Ever Ready lamps use a 911 size 6V battery which is hard an expensive to get hold of nowadays but i have discovered they sell them in America, i can get hold of them for £9 each which is expensive as all they are are two lantern batterys in paralel to make them last longer, the simple answer hack them apart and take the cells out of two lantern batterys as the cells are the same.

My Pifco camping light uses these but the flashing lanterns use one 6V battery which is cheap to buy.
