Well, first off, you could keep the batteries out of it until you wish to use it. Secondly a model of the flashlight would be nice. Also check this it has a disassembly instruction howto for a more common model, but I don't know exactly what kind you are using.

How can I get my Maglite working again?

Make sure you cleaned ALL the corrosion out of the battery cell, and also you may have a faulty On/Off button.?The battery contacts must be absolutely clean.That is my best assumption

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

How do I get swelled and leaking battery's out? of my 4 D cell mag light, the one on the end came out but the next one is stuck. I tried a few drop of vinegar to neutralze and thin the alkalie goo,...

I found some info on this site...

"Sadly, when a dry cell leaks, the leaking chemicals react with the torch casing, as you have noted.
With all Maglite torches I have ever seen, you can remove both ends of the cylinder which encloses the batteries.
In this situation, get a broom handle or wooden dowel, just a bit smaller than the torch battery diameter, and after soaking the cylinder/switch assembly cylinder in hot water (boiling if you can) for an hour or two, give that inserted dowel a few taps with a large hammer or mallet.
Normally the leaking battery comes out easily, providing you let it soak in hot water long enough to soften the corrosion products.
Once you have gotten out that battery, leave cylinder soaking overnight, and use an old toothbrush to remove the last of the oxide etc , and allow to dry thoroughly.
As a tip for next time - to save you all this bother: Oil or grease the inside of the torch cylinder, and re-coat with oil (silicone grease is best), each time you replace batteries.....smiley-cool.gif"

hope this helps you.

2AA LED Maglite not working

The Led are most likely not burned out they last 10,000 hours or more. Sounds more like defect.

How do you change the bulb in a mini maglite?


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..

Keeps turning itself off when adjusting beam

It sounds like the spring in the tail cap may be depressed which would cause intermittent contact with the negative end of the Batt. Shake the flashlight vigorously, you should NOT hear ANY noise. If you DO, take the end cap off and pull on the spring, you are trying to stretch it out a bit, replace the cap and shake it again. Go through these steps until it is QUIET when you shake it.
Also make sure there's NO CORROSION at the Positive and Negative ends of the contacts.
Maglites are pretty user friendly and the best light money can buy. I have the rechargeable model which I carried for 21 years during my tour in law enforcement.
Anyway, if it still refuses to work properly, go to; they are based in California. They will help you get it going. Good luck. :)

Mini Maglite not working

You could have dirty contacts if the batteries were in for a long time and you never used it. The contacts are: (1) the tip of the spring and (2) where the positive end of the battery touches way inside the flashlight. You can try and clean them with alcohol. If you think it might be the bulb, try the spare. There is a spare bulb under the spring you see at the base of the flashlight when you install the batteries, you have to pull the spring out and then snap it back in after you get the bulb out. And yes, positive end goes in first in the Maglite. Hope this helps.

Maglite LED. Light switch is intermittent. Have had the same issue with my 8 month old 2AA LED Maglite, don't have receipt and have tried finding a solution to get it fixed again. Lost my temper with it...


Unfortunately not, I've seen more and more of these coming back to the shop here with faults. Mostly they seem to be connection problems like yours.
Pity, MAG are excellent and have really tarnished their reputation with this LED gimmick. A lot of the customers who return their LED's to us take a traditional MAG as a replacement..

Rechargeable maglite

Unless you are using your Mag. in extreme dusty, dirty conditions, it is not necessary to take it apart for cleaning. The Mag. is sealed against dirt and moisture. Mags are about the best lite made but always remember; 'Anything man made is subject to fail and usually at the most inconvenient time.' If I knew exactly where you are at in the dissasembly I could help you reassemble it. However, barring that;
Go to;, they can help you with what ever you need.
Good luck. :)
