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.

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!)

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.

Seems I have 2 of 3 batteries corroded in my Maglite and


I would purchase a spray can of electrical corrosion cleaner and spray some down the tube and let it dissolve some of the corrosion that has gotten the batteries stuck. The stuff I have is called BatteryKleen. Hope this helped and best wishes.

How do you change the bulb in a mini maglite?


Carefully.....

Check in the base of the torch and you will see the spare bulb. you need to pull the spring out to get at it.
Next unscrew the top off the torch to expose the bulb.
The bulb is easily removed by gently pulling straight out. Replace the new bulb in the same way, lining the two pins up with the holes (doesn't matter which way round) and wipe the bulb clean of any finger grease etc.
Screw the top back on and replace the spring in the base before screwing the base back on..
Replacement bulbs, and all other parts for that matter, are easily sourced at any good outdoor store that stocks MAG.

Hope this helps..

I have an AA Mini Maglite and it quit working. I replaced the two batteries and lamp and still does not work. Any suggestions?


I have several of these flashlights and experienced the same problem. Here's my solution: take off the light end and you will see a black base where the bulb is inserted into. The black base rotates. If all else is functional (batteries, bulbs, etc.), when you rotate this black base, the light should come on. Moving the base back and forth several times seems to help also (it seems there must be some kind of contact problem). All that's left is replacing the light end.

How do you change the bulb in a minimaglite


1. Unscrew the "bell" (top) of the flashlite. 2. Remove the bulb by pulling upward. 3. Replace with new bulb (be sure you have the correct bulb . . . it will have two small wires protruding from the bottom). 4. CAREFULLY insert new bulb through hole in the bottom of the reflector. 5. Screw the top of the flashlight back on.
