Introduction

Here is how to get access to the battery in the Lezyne Micro drive using a vice and ratchet sockets (no special tools).

I found that my brilliant new light that I bought from the UK did not charge, so rather then paying the ridiculous amounts of postage to claim warranty, I thought I would try to fix it myself.

  1. Mount the light in between a 11mm socket and 22 socket like so in a vice.

  2. Slowly clamp, the clear light cover will push in. There is quite a lot of resistance.

  4. Keep on going until the resistance fades. The light cover will be depressed as shown. and the electronics will just fall out.

  5. You can see where the electronics slides into. You can see how it is held in with friction from the raised plastic bevel. If you wish to make it easier to disassemble, file the friction bevel down. Don't file down the keying semi circular bevel. The last picture shows the plastic filed down.

Thanks just repaired my Lezyne Macro Drive front light. Light would flicker, just needed to re-solder the top left resistor shown in step 4.

Thanks to your instruction I was able to fix my lezyne micro drive which had denied to work after short-circuiting the charging leads by accident. Just cut the battery and reconnected it - light was working again! Worked out nicely!

Thanks!

Is it a 123 cell it takes? I will do this when I visit my father as he has a large vice. Thanks for the guide!

Yes a "CR-123" cell 3V lithium ion

you can just push the electronics and battery out with your thumb. Usually the issue with these batteries is the battery contact gets slightly corroded. Clean it with battery cleaner, and twist the battery a bit for a new and clean connection.
