SUNday Spotlight – have you checked your batteries lately?

Hi all – I’m back on my battery warpath again. As good as I think I am about removing batteries from my photo gear and whatnot, I get burned again. Thankfully this little disaster wasn’t found in a camera but in one of my now-grown daughter’s toys. I think these have been in for about 25 years so I guess they could have looked worse. The corrosion has ruined the circuits so it’s now toast. Poor Barbie, she should have told us to change the batteries in her store’s display counter.

Don’t let this happen to one of your cameras!

Remember, check your camera’s regular basis, or better yet just remove them to be on the safe side. Thanks for stopping by! – Chris

      1. Wise move! These weren’t cheap batteries and it wasn’t subject to fluctuating temperatures. I thought I’d caught it in time too as they hadn’t leaked much, but after pulling the detector apart because it wouldn’t start, the damage was well and truely done 😦
