Wait... Do you want to power a flashlight using the battery or dig out the batt and put a torch in it?

Well, making a torch is pretty simple, you just connect a small light bulb to a battery and switch, but using a battery as the casing for a torch would be possible, but difficult, and you would have trouble opening the AA battery. There is some dangerous stuff inside.
Non-alkaline batteries are safer to gut and only have a powder inside.
Really? Cool. Not to say I don't trust you but do you have proof (images or video). Have you done it yourself. It seems like a cool project.

i'm nearly finished with my project. i used a non alkaline battery for it, a small led light for the light bulb, and also a mini switch off from a christmas light set. hope it works out.
Sweet. What's the power source?
I would have thought some type of watch battery
Watch batteries are too wide. AG13 button cells look like they could fit though.
