Looking for 4.5 v square battery adapter

Post by Zombiez211 » 23 Mar 2021 16:01

I am looking for a 4.5 volt square battery adapter that fits into a Daimon flashlight. It is about the size of the battery that goes in the flashlight but it opens up and you can put three AAA or three AA batteries in it. I have googled it and I cannot find it. My dad was in the Marines during WWII and he brought this flashlight back with him. I found it while going through his trunk. His birthday is in June and I would like to give it to him. His health is not that great and I would like to bury it with him so he can find his way to his next journey. If anybody knows where I can get one it would be greatly appreciated.

AAA adapters wouldn't be possible due to the physical size of those batteries, but do a search for "AA to 3LR12 adapter" (several avilable on eBay for instance).
