Replacing Batteries Tips

I have a preventative tip to avoid those times when it's difficult to remove the dead batteries from electronics equipment. Whenever I need to replace batteries in anything, I put a long strip of tape around each battery, leaving a "tail" hanging. When it comes time to replace the batteries, I simply pull on the tape "tail" around the battery which easily removes the battery. This is quite a frustration saver for remotes, PDAs, CD players or anything else that uses batteries.

One important safety reminder: Make sure the "tail" is not blocking the battery and the connector. I saw a completely melted fire-alarm, person died, battery was ok but connection not touching each other, in the cedar rapids iowa gazette.
