How to Replace Batteries in Bell Bicycle Light
As your light dims, replace the batteries. (batteries on line image by timur1970 from

Even if your state or municipality does not require bicycle lights for night riding, it makes sense to use them. While best known for their helmets, Bell produces several bicycle lights. Bell's iPulse LED Bike Torch is a common headlight. Other brands offer lights with an almost identical protocol for replacing batteries. With this Bell light, a twist of the wrist puts you well on the way to getting the job done.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Unscrew the lens of your Bell iPulse LED Bike Torch. The iPulse's instruction booklet notes that a 30-degree twist removes the lens unit.

  2. 2

    Pull out the battery compartment from the light assembly. Remove the four AAA batteries that are in your light, if applicable. Install four new AAA batteries in the compartment. Be certain to line up the +/- signs with the +/- indicators printed on the compartment.

  3. 3

    Slide the compartment back into the light. Ensure that the button you press to turn the light on and off faces up. Reinsert the lens on the light assembly. Twist the lens until it closes and locks on the light assembly. Test your light to make sure you installed the batteries correctly.

Tips and warnings

  • Bell and other companies produce a wide variety of bicycle lights. Battery replacement instructions vary from model to model. For instance, Bell sells the "Night Trail" front and rear lights as a set. The front light has a compartment that slides out from the rear of the light for battery replacement. You can remove the back of the rear light with a small Phillips-head screwdriver to replace its batteries.
