How to change the batteries in Mag Lite

Replace batteries


Marcia Boal... hello,

If our battery has corroded it may be impossible to get the end (opposite the light) cap to come off. The light is designed to be moisture resistant... Likewise even penetrating oil cannot get in...

To guarantee long reliable service it is best to put a tiny dot of grease on the threads on assembly.

Maglite Solitaire makes a wonderful little flashlight...
(all metal construction... single AAA battery)...
((Mini = 2 AAA batteries... opens the same)).

Basic colors included black, red, silver & blue
but this particular light was also quite popular for commercialization... often displaying many BIG NAME
COMPANY LOGOs.

The initial closure of the end cap can be quite loose to be effective because of it's O-ring design... however some folks put the end cap on too tight...

The

It might take some serious force to get it open again.

Consider using a piece of leather in a pair of pliers to avoid marring the case. Reassemble without over-tightening.

Hope this helps!

Not sure which bit to unscrew when trying change battery in onyx50




The flashlight uses 1 AA battery. My guess, you should only have to unscrew the end cap. If you finds it very hard to unscrew the end cap off, it could be from the battery has explode and swollen. MAYBE - I see this happen in my daughters MAG flashlight. DO not keep your flashlight in the car with the batteries installed. The amount of heat in the cars can ruin the batteries in the flashlight.

Unscrew the base counterclock wise until it comes off. Remove the old batteries, and insert the new batteries making sure that you insert both batteries positive (+) end in first. Replace base cap.

How do I replace the battery or batteries in a Gerber LED flashlight? The bottom has a black plate that doesn't seem to be removeable.


Hello. The "plate" is not supposed to be removed (according to Gerber Blades). The correct way to remove and replace the battery would be to unscrew the end cap all the way. The Battery will then fall away allowing for a new battery insertion. Hope this helps.

I have been given a stanley 95 111 flashlight. dont know how to replace batteries did not get a manual with it


You can remove either the cap or the end and replace the batteries that way. They twist counter clockwise.

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.

We changed the battery pack and the bulb and it wont come on so the switch is prolly defective where do we find how to repair the flash light


Alot of maglites are problematic with symptoms like this... I have found that the culprit many times is the screw cap on the bottom of the flashlight.
The elecrtrical connection needed between the spring in the end cap, the threads on the cap and the threads in the barrel of the flashlight...
Make sure you twist your spring a bit..the dissimilar metals can actually corrode between the spring and the cap... Then spin the threads a little... Then try the flashlight again...
This procedure may save yourself replacing a switch..
