Question about MagLite 3 Cell D Blue Flashlight S3D116

1 Answer

I have a 4 D cell maglite. I have had it for about 10 years. The batteries leaked and froze in the unit. It was major work to remove them. In the process the part of the light that holds the bulb was lost. Can that part be replaced?

I had the same thing happen to me a few years ago. I got the address of the battery company (which is on battery), mailed them a hand written letter, explaining what happened, and they sent me a new flash, with batteries. But, that was when companies had warrenties that said if our batteries ever harm your product in any way, we will replace it free of charge. It's worth a try....oh...also....you will have send the old flash light and batteries, after, or with your letter.TJS

Can't open the flash light to change the batteries? Does the bottom open up? Do the batteries get replaced from the top by removing the bulb first?


The back, tail cap, should be unscrewed from the maglite to replace the batteries. It can be pretty hard to open as they are generally not opened very often and there's a rubber seal to keep it water-proof. You could try using a pliers or vice but be careful not to squeeze it out of shape.

There's also a possibility that if the batteries are in it a long time that they have leaked and the leaked chemicals have sealed it. If this is the case you may be able to get the maglite replaced depending on what brand of batteries were in it. Maglite have an agreement with the makers of Duracell, Ever-Ready and Ray-O-Vac to replace the Maglite if one of their batteries leak in it.

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.

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.

Batteries stuck in torch


I had the same problem same mag lite.
After removing the lamp ect I soaked the barrel and batteries in WD40 for a few days. Using a soft faced mallet hold the torch in one hand and few sharp blows later the battery was dislodged. I must admit there was not a great deal of corrosion though. I then cleaned out the barrel by wrapping Carborundum paper around a broom handle inserting it into the barrel and just reamed out the barrel cleaned all the swarf out with tissue on the stick sprayed a drop of the WD40 into the barrel and its worked a treat ever since.
