Thanks, Carlos. We in the US have a habit of not thinking about
whether or not worldwide shipping is available.
Perhaps someone else on the list has come in contact with or knows of
a Rollei branded guard/diffusor...

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 had the Rollei 2,8C bulb flash my father gave me with the camera. Years
ago, my three years old son found it, he opened the plastic bag, ge
opened the flash triangular metal box and he destroyed the capacitor, the
test lamp and circuitry beating them with a stone; he also beat the
reflector with the same stone.
I saw the same flash in a local auction site within the original Rollei
box and bought it last year. I don't know if it was used, but it looks
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 int the
UK via eBay and found I bouht old bulbsin a local site; I'm waiting for
both items and I expecto to use theflash soon.-
