    Replacing batteries in a daid 4 cell Maglite. They had corroded and
    bulged. Actually had corroded some of the black anodizing inside the barrel.

    Bottom 2 D cells popped out without much fuss, but cell #3 had bulged at
    the base and there wasn't as much mass above it to get a good slam. Good
    thing the barrel is thick aluminum, because I beat the fook out of a
    benchtop to get #3 and #4 out.
