Pull the cap off the end and wack it in your hand or a piece of wood, don't swing it like a baseball bat. Sometimes they get stuck in mine also, Not sure why, but a good wack gets the job done. Don't worry, the flashlight can take it.

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.

My mag lite led xl100 will not turn on, have fresh batteries installed


take the bottom piece off, remove the last battery and put a coating of petroleum jelly on the threads of the tube. Then take the bottom piece and run it all the way in and back off and back in 2 or 3 times. Then put a little more petroleum jelly on the threads and put the battery back in and the bottom piece. This should do it.
