For those of you who hate buying AA batterys!

14 replies 25 views Edited Jun 17, 2012

Stop buying AA batteries by the pack buy a lantern battery(Which is this http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/a/a4/Lantern_battery.jpg/125px-Lantern_battery.jpg) and pry off the top with a screwdriver and inside is 32 AA batterys.

So lets look at prices! (U.S PRICES)

Average AA pack - 5$ USD. Gives 4 batterys in a pack.

Average Lantern battery - 5$ USD. One lantern battery.... or 32 AA batterys.

I figured this would be usefull for those that have Battery powered headsets and such.

I found this out today (Well not really this day but a little less than a week ago) while playing with a cherry bomb and a battery

Treat me nicely and i will return the favor :smileywink:

Doesn't seem very safe.

You mind demonstrating it to us?

Sure ill upload a video as soon as i get another battery but i assure you aslong as you pop the top off it will be fine just dont try like cutting in from the side. A flat head screwdriver will pry it off just fine and the batterys will be inside a cup like container you can just pour out onto a table . And if you're curious there should not be any exposed acid unless the battery was damaged before being bought.

Treat me nicely and i will return the favor :smileywink:

Might be out the cost of a lantern battery if they're constructed from four cells. Might cause a mes...

I prefer rechargeable NiMHs. Often the charger with batteries included can be found on sale. For flashlights, I just buy bulk D-cell packs from Walmart or a clearance outlet. Rayovacs work great.

I make my own batteries from soda cans, stomach acid, and paper clips.
