mini mag style flashlight
 
well i went to harbor freight a few months ago looking to buy a mini mag for the mini mag laser but all they had in stock was a gordon double A mini mag style flashlight so i bought it for like 5 or 6 bucks but any ways soon after i realized that u would need resistors or it would blow the diode so i decided to take it apart so this is kinda a tut to add a resistor that wont get in the way at all and sorry for the mostly crappy pictures

ok this is the light took apart mostly the thing sticking out is like a wedge holds it together there was a cap like on it but i broke it off =/ i had to force it out using a screen driver form the bottom and a needle nose pliers

after you pull it out you get this which just pulls apart in 2 with a few pieces inside lol
also the little tab on the top is your positive and the 1 below the white button is your negative

the black lines are a rough estimate were to solider and on the 1 to the right id try and get it under the plate thingie for room u should be fine but also a little bit of glue or something to hole the p late things we cut in half in last thing your going to want to make sure the leads from the resistor touch the negative
