Update - I can't be trusted to

keep my batteries organized and covered with electrical tape.

So after months of just resolving harder to get the stuff drawer under control, I got this battery organizer. I just use it in the drawer, but that drawer was instantly 50% more organized.

It's the perfect balance of battery types for my household and the added bonus to not burning the house down is that I can tell at a glance which kind of batteries I need to pick up more of at the store. I'm getting these for all the households on my Christmas list.

Strike anywhere matches can be lit by a mouse or rat, keep them where creatures can't get to them.

It looks like the guy was about to launch a parenting series and products, but the fire put him back to square one.

Good points

But maybe it's better to just test the smoke/monoxide detectors instead of replacing almost-fully charged batteries with fully charged batteries. I think most newer detectors will warn you when their batteries have low voltage.

Most Detectors Will "Chirp"...

...to warn of low battery....
...usually it's noticed late at night when the house is quiet.

It's not easy to go back to bed at this point.

Maybe you replaced the battery immediately?
Or just removed it, with the intention to replace it the next day.
(but will you remember tomorrow?)

CO or Carbon Monoxide Detectors will give a similar "false-alert" which is often mistaken for an "actual alert".

Many homeowners will be understandably frightened, as CO is colorless, odorless, and this will undoubtedly lead to a 911 call.
Amazingly...they will remain IN THE HOUSE until the fire dept arrives!
These detectors DO have a "Life-Span", meaning, that they can eventually become defective (pre-engineered obsolesence?)
There's a radioactive component that works like the laser in your DVD/CD Player that eventually gets fogged or "craps out".
If You Have Pets:
A dog will show signs of distress, irritability, due to CO.
A parakeet or caged bird will be lethargic or dead..as in the case of "Canaries in the Coal Mine".
Hope this helps.
It comes from a 30+ years experience in this field.
Those batteries you may have purchased at the "Dollar Store", may have less life in them than the ones you are replacing.

All My 9-V Come With...

Smoke detectors. I don't change them until they're spent, usually, but I imagine they could still generate a weak force.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Oh Yea...

Same here...Sometimes they can go for years...

I've known about this for a

I've known about this for a long time. like someone else said 9v + steel wool. it was one of the things I learned in the boy scouts when I was younger.

I thought that it was a well known thing >.>

This one is one people probably dont know. This only works with some though.

Made me get up and check my batteries

Thank you for posting

Used batteries to start campfires

50 years ago. A lot more fun than making sparks from flint and steel. And a lot more effective.

Batteries + steel wool =

best fire starting material on the planet. It absolutely the best way to start an emergency fire or just for camping/backpacking/hunting

I once saw a friend happen to have a steel wool pad in a junk drawer with loose batteries. I showed him what can happen and he nearly lost his mind and asked if it was magic! LOL
