@narfcake@werehatrack Well dang! I bin a lookin’ fer sum at ar’ ware harness smoke. My ware harnesses is plumb out, but I have a Amurican truk, witch has a negatory ground. Y’all think I kin a keep a drivin’?
I dun a tune up not tew long ago. I changed tha piston springs, tha muffler bearings, tha hood bluger, the canooter valve, and rotated tha wiper blades. I hosed hit down wif foamy engine grease fer gud measure. Hit runs gud! Butt fer tha life a me, I cain’t find no ware harness smoke nor blinker fluid, none neither.
Must be sum kind of liberal cornspiracy, dontchaknowed?
@Pufferfishy Yes. And if you ask again, someone will submit your address over at BatteryDrop, and you’ll wake up one morning to find a pallet of cases of Lucas AA cells on your doorstep, along with irate notes from seven porch pirates who were appalled at what they had just grabbed - and returned after opening.
Believe it or not, when I was a kid, the Eveready flagship brand was easily the most popular brand of battery in the U.S. Duracell existed but was not prominent, and Eveready had not yet introduced their Energizer brand.
@WaltC There are several tests out there which have them close to equivalent to Amazon basics in performance. In terms of bang for the buck, they’re considered pretty good at this price point. They won’t last as long as a real Energizer, but for a fraction of the cost, they’re still decent.
Honey, that doesn’t sound like a real site at all.
Why would anyone ever get the impression that this is a RealSite™? I mean, yeah, just the fact that it sells stuff might give that impression, but they don’t make anywhere near enough outrageous claims for the ultra-uber-fabulous-ness of the crap to qualify as a RealSite. Usually. Maybe. Pay no attention to those other links down at the bottom of the page.
That’s not acid, the alkaline batteries are full of potassium hydroxide, which reacts with air immediately. The oxidation result generally doesn’t do much to skin. On the other hand, unreacted potassium hydroxide is extra super nasty until it finishes reacting, so handling a damaged cell with extreme caution is very wise. There is also a manganese compound in there, but it’s not all that much of a hazard. Unless, of course, you eat the battery. And then you’ve got bigger problems.
@werehatrack Awesome, thank you. I never gave enough thought to them being called alkaline batteries. I don’t know how fresh the potassium hydroxide was, we flushed my wife’s hands immediately. I’m pretty sure I would have heard if there were any lasting effects.
And I haven’t been hungry enough to start snacking on these, so I have so far avoided the bigger problems!
