I've never hear of this being a 'feature.' Consider searching for a replacement tailcap, for the contact it makes with the batteries may be faulty. You can also contact Maglite and ask them to honor the warranty.

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; www.maglite.com they are based in California. They will help you get it going. Good luck. :)

Got new Energizer Hard Case Flashlight model IN421


Well much to our surprise the easy way is the best way. There are no instruction on the package nor on Energizer website but after googling we found reviews of the flashlight and how long it took others to find out how to put the batteries in. Although the base is square...it DOES turn and voila....comes off to insert batteries.

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

Batterys stuck in a maglite flashlight - MagLite 3 Cell D Blue Flashlight S3D116


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

Makita ML 140 torch. Old battery would not hold a charge as it was very old. Torch works well with a new Makita PA14 battery. But the handle gets quite hot and I need to dismantle it to find the problem. One would not expect heat from the handle but rather from the head. I have undone the screws but the swivel part also has to be removed for access. What is correct procedure? I am radio technician Thanks, Dave B.


Remove the lens, and bulb holder. look down into the cavity, and you will be able to see the spring loaded pivots. Find sonething narrow to push them in with, so that you can remove the head. here is my fix (with photos) for the 18v version

Battery stuck in main tube


This has happened to me several times. You can begin removing the bulb and reflector from its end of the flashlight. I then get a very long (5 or 6 inch) deck screw, the kind that has very coarse wood screw type threads. I screw this into the swollen battery (you may need to drill a small diameter pilot hole in the botton of the battery) and pull on the screw with pliers to see if the battery will budge. If it wont budge, I then stand the flashlight with the battery compartment up, fill it with water, leave it overnight, drain the water and pull on the deck screw again, this usually removes the battery. NOTE: The magnesium in these flashlights rapidly corrodes away in the presence of battery leakage, so if the battery has leaked a lot, you may be left with only the undamaged components to use as spare parts to repair other lights. ALSO: If you batteries have a no-leak guarantee, contact the manufacturer' customer service for your free Maglight.
