If you bite on a battery after its seemingly empty, it lasts longer. But be careful, not too hard. only enough to dent.

Dont believe me? try it for yourself.

It won't kill you.

The stomach acid is not strong enough to break through the casing.
But the battery acid might do nicely on the casing of your innards.

yep ,it's true, i've been doin it for years. Gives the battery a bit more life. Not that much though. If you have a mp3 player or something, than u might get like 5-7 minutes more.

its not biting it that will make it last longer its LICKING (yes licking) the ends that connect to the appliance/device in question that will give the battery a longer life. However, it can cause rust.

NEW FACT: Guinea pigs and rabbits can't sweat.

I dont doubt licking, but then how do you explain the proven longer life on my remote control?
