Yesterday I need to solve this problem with my MagLite Solitaire. My solution was open a little hole in the negative pole of the corroed battery with a Dremel and before screw down a drywall bolt into. At last I pull with a pliers.

Yes the bulb assy can be removed as it's basically the switch you need like a special tool for removing it. but first which brand of battery is in it. both energizer and Duracell have warranty about replacing item that the battery has damaged. try that route is my suggestion before trying to remove batteries and possibly breaking the switch. you can get one sent to you by calling up customer service as i replaced one before mini mag lite also.

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


Here are the instructions:
http://www.maglite.com/pdf/CustServ/CD_switch_repair_8_0410212004718132.pdf

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 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...


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!)

I have a mini maglite - and I cannot remove the batteries. For the price, these certainly can't be disposable lights! Only the narrow end of the light can be removed, the bulb end does not enable you to...


Try tapping the base of the torch gently on a table, this may dislodge the batteries . Possibly the batteries leaked and corroded and became wedged in the torch ?

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.

I have a mini Maglite with one battery stuck in the barrell


I had a similar problem. My wife put two AA rechargeable batteries into her mini maglite. Apparently the AA rechargeables have a slightly larger diameter than alkaline batteries. One of them was stuck in the barrel. I was able to remove it by first removing the lens and bulb so as not to break it. Then I slammed slamming the barrel down hard onto the carpet on our floor. This hard shock jarred the battery loose and it came out of the barrel. Hope this helps someone out.
