After drilling each leg to remove my corroded batteries I found that each leg isa push fit allowing it to seperate from the body thus allowing a screwdriver to be pushed thru releasing the corroded batteries. Re-assemble assuring a tight fit to make connection and it works well. Good luck I was drilling 1 leg for hours and the other 2 took ten minutes.

I simply need to know what the 3 colored LEDs on the handle represent. There is a red one, an orange(yellow) one, and a green one. I lost the manual and need to know when the battery is fully charged. It seems the green one comes on only after it has been plugged into the charger for a while, but then what? How many hours do I leave it on the charger to get the battery fully charged but not over charged? By the way, if you are looking for the DMU 12-3 battery (12 volt 3 AH) I got one from BATTERYSPEC.COM...$16.50 plus $10 shipping.


Red, Yellow, Green are the battery level indicators, Red being the lowest like a fuel gauge. If the green comes on right away after plugging in the charger then it must not indicate the charge cycle. If its a 3Ah battery whats the charger output amperage? Then you could just do the math to figure out how long it would take to charge that battery to full with the output. Otherwise it shouldn't hurt it to leave it plugged in overnight or at least a few hours to charge 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 assembly out the top so I can use a dow to tap the batteries out? If not, how can I get them out? Thanks for any help you can give.


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!)

My Mini mag AA worked until I took it apart to install an LED kit


Start with a new mini-mag and put the upgrade in it. It will save you the frustration, especially not knowing for sure whether their is a missing part or not. Plus it will save the hassle. GGBMDB

I purchased a replacement battery, designed for this lantern, but can't get it to fit it anywhere. Is there a trick to this? I'm sure it's the right battery.
