the thompson twins' "hold me now" came on the PA, echoing, while i stood, completely alone, in the toilet aisle of the local hardware megastore, and in that moment i was finite, and so i paid over $100 for a bidet just to feel something real.

so today i learned that the A23 battery is the "three kids in a trenchcoat" of batteries

@nasser @nicknicknicknick I have several flashlights that run on AAAA (yes, four As) batteries. 9Vs are the cheapest source of them, just like 6Vs are the cheapest source of Ds.

@khm @nasser @nicknicknicknick
The cheapest and also the most dangerous way to get them. These little beasts store quite some chemical energy. And you dont want that to unload into your face at once.

Greetings from a lab tech who supervised controlled battery damaging. Wish I had the clearance to share those explosions.

@Goran @khm @nicknicknicknick 😮

somewhat related, I have a laptop whose battery has puffed out and I don't know how to dispose of it 😬 any advice?

@nasser @khm @nicknicknicknick
That's more or less the same way you'd dispose of a regular one which died just of age; Though with extra packaging.
If you got it in retail ask that shop, if not call your local recycling/waste disposal station.

@khm @nasser @nicknicknicknick Are there real?!??? Please tell me these are hoaxes!

Are you telling me I'm living in the Wizard of Oz of batteries??!?

@nasser No doubt the work of the wicked witch of west!

@nasser @nicknicknicknick whaaaaaa really?! I need AAAA constantly for my tablet stylus and where I live those batteries are much harder to get by than 9V! Got to check if local 9V are made of AAAA! Thanks!

@nicknicknicknick
I learned a few days ago that it's a battery because it consists of multiple cells.
