Save Dead Batteries

When a battery is supposedly not working anymore or running low for a particular gadget, do not toss it out! It can actually be useful for a different gadget or as a spare.


Example: When my wireless mouse indicates I need to change the battery because it's running low. I will use the mouse until the mouse stops working completely and save the battery.

Fast forward, my house clock stops working. Instead of using a brand new battery, I will use that battery mouse for the clock. May work for flashlights, remote controllers, etc too!

Batteries can get pricey, so get out all the uses before recycling the batteries!

Additionally, you should keep all the used batteries in a warm location. Even the deadest of dead batteries can be revived with a bit of heat. When,say,our television remote control doesnt work, we take the cover off the batteries and vigorously rub them for a few seconds and voila enough life comes back to turn the tv off or on, change the channel or volume.

When your batteries have lost all charge, be sure to recycle them.
