Unfortunately, we still haven’t gone past the battery technology and that means that we are going to be stuck with them for quite some time, or maybe someday in the near future some genius is going to help us get rid of batteries once and for all. Until then, we’re stuck with batteries and will have to keep on dealing with them and the frustrations associated with it.
Why unfortunately, you might ask? Well, batteries sure are useful, and we do use them in pretty much every electronic device we have. We either use batteries, or we have to plug the device directly, draining electricity. For devices that aren’t located in the same spot throughout the day, plugging the device isn’t a real solution, so batteries have to do the trick.
But the problem with batteries is that they run out, and they aren’t really easy to recharge. Most of us just have to take the time to go ahead and purchase new batteries whenever the old ones run out. This is a minor inconvenience, but we all understand the pain that it is whenever the batteries run out a terrible time.
Let’s look at an example. You arrive at your house at around 3 a.m. there’s really nothing good to do right now except go to sleep, but for some reason you aren’t sleepy and you don’t want to go to bed to just lay there and thinking about every mistake you have ever made your life – not today. But there’s a solution, you lay on the bed and watch TV until you get sleepy and then you just need to turn off the TV and have some sweet dreams, right?
Well, it is right, provided the remote has batteries. If the batteries in the remote are dead, you are just going to have to get up from the bed whenever you want to change the channel or adjust the volume, and that is terrible.
In this video, however, we have a solution to this problem. No, batteries that don’t run out still haven’t been invented. But we do have a quick and easy way to test batteries that doesn’t even involve a meter. All you need to perform this test is the battery itself, and your own hands.
What you have to do is to simply grab the battery you want to test and drop it vertically. A bad battery is going to bounce a few times and then it is likely for it to fall over. A good battery, however, is most likely going to bounce once r twice, and then it will probably hold its vertical position. That’s it! The test takes about 2 seconds and it will save you a lot of trouble.
