Mini Mags take several maint procedures:
* Unscrew the tail cap. Use a cotton swab (Q-tip) and a little oil to clean
the threads, internal and external.
PUll the little spring out of the tail cap. Clean that, and the hole where
it fits. Same deal, swab and some light oil. WD-40 is good.
* Unscrew the entire lens head off, as if you were changing the bulb. Remove
the bulb. Gently pull the "DO NOT REMOVE" part from the end. The inside part
can now slide out. Swab and oil, to clean the metal parts. Leave the metal
pieces in the round plastic, they are a PIA to get back in. Set the round
plastic with the two metal pieces into the tube, and use two batteries to
push it back in. Replace the plastic part you pulled out. Replace bulb, then
lens assembly, and then tail cap.
You and I must be engineers. No one else spends two hours maintaining a ten
dollar flash light. Check also, are both batteries pointing same direction?
