Battery stuck in 3 AA battery Minimaglite

Well, other than banging the barrel on a piece of wood, does anyone have any OTHER way to get a battery out of a 3 AA minimaglite? This is a design flaw if you ask me, and I would NOT recommend these lights to anyone else, what good is it if you have to throw it away when the first set of batteries run out and are stuck in the barrel?

The battery has to make contact with the bulb as well as the end cap, so if you take the end cap off and the batteries don't come out that end I recommend pulling the bulb assembly apart and taking them out that end. And the next time you put batteries in coat the outside of them (not the terminals) with electrical grease (like you put on car batteries) to prevent them from sticking in there again. Note: if both ends are removed you can use something like a screw driver to push the batteries straight through and out the other end.

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 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.

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.
