I cannot get the one d cell battery left out of my 5 d cell mag flashlite I've done everything with no luck I don't want to destroy it with my frustration can someone help me please


Remove the lens end of the flashlight. Remove bulb. At the switch there is a small screw that should release the socket for the bulb and what ever else is left in the tube. If battery still stuck should be able to push it on through with what ever you have that will fit in the tube,.

CORROWDED BATTERIE STUCK IN FLASHLITE


Put on a pair of gloves. Then, using needle nose pliers grasp the battery and pull it out. If it's too far down to reach with needle nose, or if the corrosion has "welded" it to the inside of the flashlight, find a flat head screwdriver or stiff wire coat hanger or other tool/object that will reach and is stiff enough to pry the offending battery loose. Once it's broken free, turn it upside down and let the battery fall out on its own. The important thing now is, if you plan on using the flashlight again, cleaning out the inside thoroughly of all corrosive residue. This is particularly important on the metal battery/power contacts. A wire brush should suffice for the inside of the flashlight. Sand paper or file will work for the contacts. Attach to the tip of a screwdriver if you need to reach deep to get them clean. Baking soda will neutralize the battery acid. Finally, remember to recycle the offending battery not throw it out with the regular garbage.

Try tapping the base of the (battery opening) torch on a hard surface so the battery can slide out.

Batteries are stuck in the flashlight. How do I get them out without distroying it?


If they are stuck, they have probably leaked and the flashlight is probably corroded already. But here are two suggestions. Get a heavy piece of string and tie it securely around the flashlight at the lens end. Tape it on with duct tape for good measure. When hung by the string the lens end of the flashlight should point up and the open end should point down. Stand in a place with lots of space and no windows or pets or people around. Swing the string over your head to generate some g's. The batteries may come flying out. Another suggestion is to drill a hole in the battery, put a long screw in it and pull it out. Wear safety goggles. If the second battery is also stuck you will need a long drill and a longer screw. Good luck.

1 "D" cell battery is corroded and stuck inside.


Here are the instructions:

If you remove the tail cap (the part that you unscrew to put the batteries in the flashlight) and the head assembly (the part that has the light bulb) you should be able to push the battery out. Wear some of those disposable latex gloves as that chemical that comes out of the batteries is very corrosive. Or at least wash your hands really well before touching anything, especially your eyes. Good luck.

I have a 6 d cell maglite. when i removed the end cap 3 batteries came out number four is stuck in the maglite. how can i get it out?


Not sounding good. I have had the problem in the past with Mag lights and though they are good, I always seem to have battery corrosion problems. What I have done is to get a non-metalic rod, wooden doweling has worked for me, carve a bit of a blade at the end, sort of like a long screw driver and work it into and between the batter and flashlight case. Not so hard as to deform the flashlight, but to try and break the seal between the corroded (I assume) battery and the case. Spray in some WD40 and work the dowel in and around the battery. Stop on occasion and tap the open end of the flashlight on a heavy rag laid atop a piece of wood to try and jar the battery loose. By repeating this process I have been able to remove corroded batteries, but not necessarily save the flashlight, as some times the on/off switch is corroded as well. Once you get the batteries out you may be able to clean the inside with some abrasive (steel wool?) to clean out the corrosion, but as I said, you may not be able to save the light. Best of luck!

I have a D cell battery stuck inside


Unscrew both ends and spray WD40 or a similar lubricant around the edges of the battery and allow it to penetrate all the way around. Afterward, try tapping around the area where the battery is to loosen it up. Then try shaking it in a up/down motion.

Batterys stuck in a maglite flashlight


Ok, problem is the acid has corroded and caused a white powder residue to form, you will have to spray a solvent into the torch to free the batteries... bad news? the corrosion cannot be fully cleared and the maglite will always be on the blink... sorry but i have tried several times for people and just cannot clear it out fiully

Battery stuck in main tube


This has happened to me several times. You can begin removing the bulb and reflector from its end of the flashlight. I then get a very long (5 or 6 inch) deck screw, the kind that has very coarse wood screw type threads. I screw this into the swollen battery (you may need to drill a small diameter pilot hole in the botton of the battery) and pull on the screw with pliers to see if the battery will budge. If it wont budge, I then stand the flashlight with the battery compartment up, fill it with water, leave it overnight, drain the water and pull on the deck screw again, this usually removes the battery.
NOTE: The magnesium in these flashlights rapidly corrodes away in the presence of battery leakage, so if the battery has leaked a lot, you may be left with only the undamaged components to use as spare parts to repair other lights.
ALSO: If you batteries have a no-leak guarantee, contact the manufacturer' customer service for your free Maglight.
