5 Tips to put batteries in an ATAK flashlight?
If your battery is not holding a charge or you’re experiencing other issues with the flashlight, it may be time to change the batteries. Here are 5 easy steps that should help:
1. Remove the battery cover by pressing down on one side and pulling up on the other end.
2. Lift out the battery chamber with a coin or your finger.
3. Snap off any torn or damaged wrap around the cell using a straight edge such as a knife, screwdriver, or razor blade to expose shiny metal plates inside of it ּ- be very careful not to cut yourself when doing so!
4. Gently twist each plate until it falls off – especially if at least two Phillips head screws are still attached (some flashlights may have only 1 screw). You should now see 2 black cells exposed ּ- label them A and B according to their polarity indicated in blue text near their edges.
5. Replace negative (-) cell with fresh CR2032 lithium-ion battery ̶ is usually white but could be different colors depending on brand/model number etc.; just remove plastic wrapper if present before insertion into a flashlight body cavity; do NOT install positive (+)cell yet!
Note that some models have reverse layouts where numbers 4 & 5 are actually 3 & 2 !! If unsure which way yours is, please look for the key ring attachment feature holding flashlight onto jewellery etc.
How do you open an ATAK flashlight to change the battery?
ATAK flashlights are designed to be easily accessible and replaceable. To open the flashlight, remove the battery cover by inserting a flathead screwdriver into the two notches near the bottom of the cover and twisting it counterclockwise. Next, use your fingers to gently pull down on both sides of the cover until it pops off.
Finally, take out your new battery and insert it into the correct location.
Can I put AA batteries in an ATAK flashlight?
No, you should not put AA batteries in an ATAK flashlight. This is because the plastic battery case can melt and cause a fire. Instead, use a lithium-ion or CR123A battery.
How do you know which way to put batteries in?
The easiest way to figure out how to put batteries in a device is usually by looking for the symbol that indicates which direction the battery should be inserted. This is typically a triangle with an arrow inside of it, and it will denote whether the positive (+) or negative (-) end of the battery goes into the device first.
For devices that use watch batteries, such as wristwatches or digital clocks, make sure you insert them in clockwise order so they’ll work correctly. And lastly, always remove any errant batteries from devices by gently pushing them down on both ends until they click out. Be sure not to pinch your fingers when doing this!
What side of the battery goes on first?
Most people know that the negative side goes on first, but this is not always the case. In fact, it can depend on what type of battery you have. AA batteries typically go in reverse order from largest to smallest (bottom to top), while AAA batteries go in reverse order from strongest to weakest.
It’s time to use your newbie skills and try changing batteries for the first time. Always check the orientation of the battery and put it on correctly before turning on the flashlight. Once you are done, keep checking if the light is working properly by holding down both the tail switch and button at once.
ATAK batteries are not only compatible with other brands of flashlights but also powerful and long-lasting. That’s why we recommend using them on a regular basis.

I am an enthusiastic student of optics, so I may be biased when I say that optics is one of the most critical fields. It doesn’t matter what type of optics you are talking about – optics for astronomy, medicine, engineering, or pleasure – all types are essential.
