    I cannot find any reference to the part in the attached photos

    It is marked,

    131

    The PCB has it marked as,

    C3

    The PCB is from a very bright torch with two bulbs and can be charged from a cigarrette lighter or AC

    Any help in identification would be greatly apprecieted

    Hello,

    The part you show looks like a styroflex capacitor.
    The 131 could stand for 130 pF.

    It should be a capacitor due to the C3 label close to it. Nothing else around it looks like a capacitor, thus C3 is for it.

    I agree with those who have identified it as a capacitor.

    Hello,

    Here is s quote on film capacitors like I called "styroflex":

    This quote comes from this page, where also links to manufacturers can be found.
