I don't know if Rollei did a safety shield or diffusor for
their bulb flashes, however manufacturers like Glo-Brite Products did them
for several flash reflectors sizes and models and I guess they worked for
Rollei bulb flashes too.-
Yes, I first found the 22,5v battery at Amazon, but the sellers did not
ship it to my country; a seller in the UK is sending me two of them right
now, thank you Eric:

Thanks for posting, Carlos, and I will follow your adventure into
flash lamb photography with interest.
Several carbon zinc 22.5V Batteries are available on Amazon. It might
be a good idea to replace the capacitor pre-emptively.
My question is did Rollei make any kind of safety shield or diffusor
for this attachment, as Kodak and others did?

I saw the same flash in a local auction site within the original Rollei
unused, the refector is still wrapped in the original silk paper and the
parts look clean, pristine.
Now I want to use it and I have two issues: Bulbs and the battery ,hoping the other parts (capacitor and circuitry) are working well
The 22,5v battery has a marginal production today and I found one intthe UK via eBay and found I bouht old bulbsin a local site; I'm waiting for
