Glowe lantern instructions

Say hello to Glowe, a 170 lumen dual-function lantern and torch (can we call it a lantorch?). It’s so nifty and adaptable that we played with it for about an hour before remembering to write these instructions… We got there in the end though, here’s everything you need to get started.

Change the Batteries

Unscrew the base cap and tip out the battery cradle, insert 3 x AAA batteries in the direction indicated in the cradle.

Service and Repairs

If the torch does not work, check that the battery has been inserted the right way around and that it is not flat. Check that there is no water in the torch, dry thoroughly if there is and try again. Check contacts for signs of corrosion caused by the battery leaking or through damp. Clean contacts with a light emery cloth. 

If issues cannot be corrected using these instructions, contact Alpkit for advice.
