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.

Watch batteries are too wide. AG13 button cells look like they could fit though.
