Great advice, Brighty, thanks. Unfortunately, some folks won't know their light is buggered until they need it. It's a good idea to check them a couple times a year!

From time to time it's always a good idea to remove the batteries from your maglite flashlight. I neglected this and ruined both a five cell and six cell D size maglite. The battery electrolite leaked all over the inside and I could only remove one or two size D cells. The others were stuck inside with the leaky goo!
Kind of like changing your oil in the car. Just remove the batteries from time to time and check each cell for any signs of electrolyte leakage. If you find some, discard the cell and clean the inside of your maglite with a mild solvent. This will insure a very long service life of your flashlight.
