Question about MagLite Mag-Lite& Flashlight
This torch belonged to my Stepfather who has since passed away. It has a battery stuck in the barrell. He tried to get it out but did not succeed. Would like to be able to get it going again. He used it in his work as an aircraft engineer.
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.

I pushed the corroded battery out by srewing off all the caps, then removing the bulb and pulling off the switch plate (though it says not to), then pushing the switch down through the barrel with the end of a wooden spoon. Worked easily and pushed out the one stuck battery. Put the thing together again with new batteries and its perfect.

I got on the internet and found a place in Australia who do repairs. They gave me the contact details for a crowd in Auckland. I have sent the torch up to them to repair. It appears you need a special tool to remove the switch assembly to push the battery out from the bulb end. I am waiting for the torch to be returned.
