i have a few maglite flashlights, the AA size, that the batteries have apparently leaked in, and now i can't get the batteries out. i have them soaking in some baking soda to try and get them out. i guess it might be my fault since these were left over from my army days and probably still have the same batteries in them. any ideas? also, a brinkmann 3D cell that the switch doesn't work on, any ideas?
