Well, can you? Let’s find out!
I can’t keep the secret – YES YOU CAN! I took a pair of fully-drained alkaline batteries and put them in a standard Ni-MH battery charger – and it worked! It worked! They charged up and came back from the dead! Look!
I’m still shaking with excitement. The battery industry has been LYING to us for decades – you CAN recharge non-rechargeable alkaline batteries! Staggering developments. I shall be contacting battery companies for official statements regarding this incredible news. I wouldn’t want to be an employee of Duracell right now.
