How to replace the lamp in a Mini Maglite

The Mini Maglite is a durable, compact flashlight. If your Mini Maglite stopped working, check or replace its two AA batteries first, and if that doesn't fix it, you'll probably need to replace the lamp. You can order replacement lamps in packs of two online, or you may be able to find them locally in a hardware store.

To replace the lamp in a Mini Maglite:

1. Unscrew the bottom of the flashlight. (Hold the flashlight with the head facing down so that the batteries don't fall out.)
2. Remove the batteries.
3. Unscrew the flashlight head from the barrel.
4. The lamp is mounted into the flashlight on two prongs; gently pull up on the lamp to remove it.
5. Install the new lamp by lining the prongs up with the two holes and slowly inserting it fully.
6. Screw the flashlight head back on.
7. Reinsert the batteries.
8. Screw the base back on.

When you've finished, turn the flashlight on (by turning the lens cover or the head counter-clockwise) to verify that the new lamp works. If the light doesn't come on, take the flashlight apart again and check to make sure the lamp is installed correctly and fully. Since the lamps come in packs of two, if you can't get the first lamp to work, try the second lamp in the pack. If that lamp doesn't work either, check your batteries and make sure the lens cover and head are both screwed on all the way.

I cannot get the cap off to replace the batteries of my mini maglite 2 cell AA


Probably a leaking battery has coroded the cap. You can send it direct to MagLite for warranty. Go to: http://www.maglite.com/repaircenters.asp

I have a 3AA LED mini maglite with stuck batteries. The best I can tell they have not leaked. I tried freezing the unit as well as heating the barrel to no avail. Is there a way of removing the bulb assembly out the top so I can use a dow to tap the batteries out? If not, how can I get them out? Thanks for any help you can give.


well, I have a 3 cell mini maglite AA with a corroded battery stuck up next to the LED. I have searched but not found a way to remove the LED to push out the battery with a dowel. The best solution I read about was to drill a hole in the battery and insert a large screw and pull it all out.
(My Maglite is from 2009 or 2010, but I think they made this model in 2011, 2012 and 2013- this is for SEO!)

is there a rear cap on a mini maglite. I am


Yes there is a cap. I had the same problem most likely the battery inside has corroded and leaked fusing the cap shut, contact MagLite at www.maglite.com if there were either Duracell, Eveready or Ray-O-Vac batteries in there they will replace it for free under warranty.
