Dead or Alive?

hmmm, a drawer full of AA's and more AAA's but which are good and which aren't. simple battery test...hold the battery by the positive end about 1 inch from a smooth flat surface and drop it. a charged battery might wobble but will stand on it's end. a battery needing charged or dead will fall wobble, bounce and fall over. works every time.

Cool but I think I will keep on using my Fluke because I went to the trouble to learn how to use it.
