Abstract

See full text

The present invention relates to a flashlight having a rotary switch for switching different brightness levels and/or luminous colors, which rotary switch has a battery cartridge arranged rotatably in a flashlight housing and having spring-mounted electrical contacts arranged at the end, which electrical contacts are each connected to an electrical contact face or an electrical contact zone of a contact plate. In order to provide a switchover option for a flashlight with different switching steps that has a simple design, is light and can be operated reliably, the invention proposes that the battery cartridge is held securely in the flashlight housing by a fixing sleeve and that the battery cartridge is rotated in the flashlight housing by a rotary button that passes longitudinally axially through the fixing sleeve.
