Maglite has been selling flashlights since 1955. The company makes a miniature version of its popular flashlight called the Mini Maglite AA. The Mini Maglite AA is a handy item to keep around the house or in your purse or car. If the bulb in your Mini Maglite has burnt out, you'll need to replace it. No tools are required, and the task shouldn't take more than five minutes to complete. Mini Maglites come with a spare bulb hidden on the bottom compartment; you shouldn't have to purchase a replacement.
