    Exclamation 9 volt battery warning!

    Early this morning I awoke to a loud POP! almost sounded like a .22 short going off. I got up looked around the kitchen (which is where the sound came from) and found nothing at first.....

    As I headed out the door to take care of critters I found this 9 volt battery, the wife had bought several to put in smoke detectors but had not done so yet.

    They were sitting all grouped together not touching anything, but one of them well look at the photos...

    I have no idea why it did this, but note it is of Chinese manufacture. So if you have some of this brand beware!!!

    Sounds like the vent hole in the top was clogged. The bigger question is why in the world would you trust "Life Safety" equipment to run on el cheapo no name batteries? That's like grabbing a hand full of rounds that were found loose in your granddads sock drawer and using them for your carry ammo.

    New one on me. I've never seen that happen to a battery that was just sitting there and not doing anything and just minding it's own business.
    The Chinese do make great fireworks though. <~~~

    The detectors will at least give a low battery warning, that is if I can keep the kids from stealing the battery's for their stuff......

    I just hope their guns never take up the habbit.....

    Edit: I figured out what, the cell that is higher than the rest in the photos, I just pulled them out for a closer look and that single cell appears to have exploded at the bottom, will post photos later.

    Just a related item....watch out if you carry one in your pocket. I did and later thought a wasp had stung me.

    Turns out that the terminals had shorted out on some change in my pocket and the arc gave me a nasty burn!

    This is a GREAT source for "AAAA" batteries like the Streamlight Stylus uses. Far cheaper than buying them as "AAAA"s

    Also If you are buying 2 or more smoke detectors for your home please buy 1 of them from a diffrent manufacturer.

    Why?

    batteries from china.... do not trust them in anything.
    for prior work many brands were tested. china sucks.
    Tadiran are the best BUT the last 6 months they have had issues with low capacity. not enough LI in the mix.
