The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. Bertrand Russell, 1872 - 1970.
Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts. C.S. Lewis, 1898 - 1963.

I'd take an "EverReady" 'Lithium Ion', battery, over a 'Duracell', any day.
Or any Lithium Ion, over an Alkaline battery.

Or...one of those 176 year thingme's....if they still sell them. wink

Alkaline batteries have the miserable habit of leaking and destroying what they're in unless you take them out first.. Ugh.

Li-ion batteries have the miserable habit of swelling up like a balloon and destroying what they're in unless you take them out first. Ugh.

Actually, batteries just suck come to think of it.

If they really thought there was something to find out inside that would improve batteries they would have cut it open already, right?

They do, but to be fair they're magic little pills you can stick in a little block of metal that lets you see in the dark, so they're pretty badass at the same time.
