The electric halogen handle uses electricity as its power source and uses a halogen globe. Finger contact will dramatically shorten the life of the globe. If you do touch it, wipe the globe immediately with methylated spirits.
Replacing the globe of the electric halogen handle
- Slide the magnifying head off the electric halogen handle. Refer to Photo 1.
- Unscrew the halogen globe.
- Replace with a 4.0V halogen globe using gloves or a tissue to avoid direct finger contact with the globe. Halogen globes are available from Vision Australia.
- Return the magnifying head to the electric halogen handle.
The image below shows where the globe is screwed into the handle.
