Junk Drawer Adventures: Batteries
Yesterday, I ventured cleaning out some of my junk drawers and containers that I have scattered around the house. We have at least one junk drawer in every room and some random containers where we throw things we find around the house. I've noticed that many of these continers have a two things in common. They contain batteries and pens. Whether they work or not is unknown.
The batteries in question were AA half the time and the other half were AAA. So I went about gathering them all into one container and testing them. Thank god for battery testers otherwise I would be stuck throwing them out. 1 out of all the batteries still held a charge.
I was bringing this up to a friend and she said they keep old batteries as well. I wonder how many people do this? Why do we do this? Do we honestly think they'll regain a charge sitting in a drawer with random items?
From now on, no more. If they die in the item, they get tossed out.
