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

both appreciated :)
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.
You still need to wear gloves though. http://www.metacafe.com/watch/2150950/make_a_sneaky_usb_battery/
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.
instructable by any chance?

sounds complicated...but i'mma give it a try
