I was watching TWIT.TV - thanks to Robert Crouse for turning me on to it - and they showed this youtube on how to test a AA battery. Folks are saying it works.



The shorthand rule; if it bounces it is bad.

Good to know. Thanks Pubby.

If it's on the Internet it has to be True.

Well, you know I showed this to my DH and he had to try it. The batteries in my mouse are going bad, so he compared those to brand new ones from the pack and sure enough it worked. We tried it on the kitchen table (wood) and the tile floor, same result. Very cool tip/trick!

So you're not from the South, that's okay, you got here as fast as you could.

It kinda annoys me.. I don't know how many times a day I get told that I am saying something wrong (I have a mix of mid-western/southern accent).

Why did you take that as a slam? Maybe it was a honest question?

Because it was a slam? She didn't ask a question, she made a statement.

I thought what feelip said was funny, but what do I know, I get made fun of being from the south :rofl:

When a battery discharges is also produces a small quantity of hydrogen gas which pushes on all sides of the battery causing the bottom to swell slightly. That'll allow it to bounce and if there is a weak seam, it'll leak out that white chalky stuff.

That's funny you mentioned car batteries. I guess someone tried it in the Hiram WM this evening, there was one in the floor with liquid coming out of it. There was someone standing next to it while another person came to clean it up.

So you're not from the South, that's okay, you got here as fast as you could.

When my wife's been bad, she bounces and falls over when I drop her...

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.

It is a sign that the U.S. Government can't pay its own bills.

It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies…

America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

Senator Barack Obama
