Is changing batteries a simple operation?
By Joe W from Pensacola, FL on December 31, 2013
Answer:Changing batteries is an easy procedure depending on how you mount the light. We use ours in a large walk-in pantry where it's mounted on a wall near the ceiling. We need a step stool or small ladder to change the batteries, but that would be true for changing bulbs in most fixtures or changing batteries in a smoke detector.

Answer:Changing the batteries is not difficult. There is a single "wing nut" to release the light from the mounting bracket. This may involve climbing if you mounted them out of reach from the ground. Once the fixture is down a quick twist of the lens portion and release two clips that hold the batteries in place. Less than a minute. Be sure to look at it as you are taking it apart to see how the batteries are to be installed.

Answer:Changing the batteries is very simple and quick as long as you are able to safely able to reach the light fixture without having to stretch too far. If you can do that, it just takes about 10 seconds to change batteries. I have found that changing the batteries is not needed often.

Answer:Changing batteries is super simple. You just take off the head and there's the battery case. I've done it many times.
By Richard from Belmar, NJ on January 1, 2014
Answer:Great product. All you do is take the top off, slide the battery out and put new ones in. The batteries will last for almost a year so you won't have to do this very often.

Answer:It's as simple as changing batteries in a flashlight.
By Paul from Leominster, MA. on January 1, 2014
Answer:This is a great spotlight and is very bright white light -- it has worked well outside for my needs. Changing the batteries is a very simple process. Just unscrew the head of the light, install the batteries, and screw it back together lining up the markers to ensure it is sealed and water tight. Just like installing or changing batteries in a typical hand held flashlight. Good luck!
By Jim Bocchini from Miramar Bh. Fl. on January 1, 2014
Answer:Yes, very easy. And the light works great.
By Mike from Schaumburg, IL on January 1, 2014

By SUSANNE from SCIO, NY on January 1, 2014
Answer:Yes...it's very easy....just like changing the batteries in a flashlight.
By John Conley from Trinity, FL on January 1, 2014
Answer:The batteries are exceptionally easy to replace. The face of the light, in which the 2 bulbs and sensor are located, is simply turned (there are marks that indicate which way to turn as well as indicating closed and open) to the open marker and the face slides out with the batteries. Two plastic locking rods are pushed releasing the batteries and permitting replacement (the only occasionally difficult part is sometimes one holding rod does not release completely and the process has to be repeated to get all 4 batteries released at the same time). Everything is marked to ensure correct placement of the battery when installing new ones. Simply install the 4 replacement batteries, replace it in the face with the batteries into the base and turn. The base that is installed on your house, fence, or whatever never needs to be removed. I have replaced the batteries in one unit and the whole process took me no more than 3 minutes at most. I hope this answers your question.
By Rick Sauter from Felton, PA on January 1, 2014
Answer:Yes it is quite simple to change the batteries. The level of difficulty does increase depending where you have it mounted. If it is mounted quite high or hard to reach this would require more time. The actual time to replace the batteries is less than two minutes once you have access to the light.
By Daniel from Syracuse, UT on January 1, 2014
Answer:Yes. The lens assembly just comes off with a slight twist. The battery compartment is attached to the lens assembly that detached. This makes it easy to change the batteries and then re-install the lens assembly when done.
By Tom from NJ on January 2, 2014
Answer:Yes, very similar to changing the batteries in a flashlight.
