LIGHTING AN SL ??????????? HELP

HAS ANYONE OUT THERE DEVELOPED A RIG FOR LIGHTING SL'S?
HERE IS ANDERS PROBLEM;
I'm still strugling with the lighting the lamp with 4 volt (as mentioned in the blog of september 20, 2007). All the batteries I have tried, have not had power enough to heat up the wire, and the 1 Amp power supply just short curcuited. Have you got any idears about lighting the lamp? I'm getting quite desperate :)
On the base there is stamped 53/5291 and E. I recon that the 53 is the production year, does the 5291 or the E say any thing about the lamp type?
