    Default Alkaline battery bounce test..

    Not sure if this has been discussed here before or not but I thought this was interesting.

    Apparently you can judge the approximate state of charge of an alkaline battery by how much it bounces off a hard surface.

    This is just one of several videos on it.

    A couple others.. not as scientifically done.

    Your comments, thoughts?

    Default Do you believe in the bounce test?

    I came across this youtube video. Do you believe in the bounce test?
    I have not tried this yet since I do not have any dead batteries.

    Talking Want to know if a battery is dead? See if it BOUNCES


    Do bounced alkaline battery`s leak more than non-bounce ones?
