I have several of these lights. The button batteries don't last very long at all. I was wondering if anyone can give me some instructions on how to convert and what parts/battery pack I would need. The lights are pretty cheap, and the on off switch is really poorly made-- but they do work well when you find one that has a little bit of life in it. I imagine the battery pack is either triple a - double a. Please, if you can help, layman terms would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Post 56 of the same thread has a bit more info on what Otaku used. Having problems finding the dowel thread - I think that was actually for hooking them up to use a wall wart.

Post 45 indicates that the batteries are..."1130/1131 = AG10"

Hopefully someone who knows what they're talking about will just jump in with full instructions.

Thank you for the links on those posts. I did see there were some for sale for 13$ plus shipping somewhere on the forums. I was hoping to beat that cost and do it myself since I already have a couple dozen I bought from niftymart last year. I noticed when using them the batteries only lasted a matter of hours. I was thinking to use a battery pack, but not sure how to wire it up or what Exactly is needed. The 9v battery looks interesting. In the photo from the seller here somewhere the light is mounted on the top of the pack. This also looks like it makes for a good base for placing the light.

Any other advice on converting this from the button battery to the 9v clip on or an actual battery pack? Thanks.
