    How to use AAA batteries when you need AA

    I stumbled across this the other day, thought I would share it with my favorite forum browsers ^.^

    Materials
    Tin Foil
    AAA Batteries

    Steps
    Now, I have read two ways to do this. In one, you can put the tin foil on the negative ends and in another you can put it on the positive ends of the battery. I do not know which one works better.
    1. Rip off a sheet of tinfoil to use to cover the end of the battery that you choose to.
    2. Insert the battery along with the tinfoil to "fill the space"
    3.Profit

    Here is a picture of how it should look.
    I DO NOT KNOW IF THIS IS DANGEROUS OR NOT. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK





    ​Enjoy!

    awesome never thought of that
    seems like the foil would short out if it was like the picture though,
    but I guess the batteries in that device are running the same direction

    Yeah it doesn't work on everything. For example, while playing around with this, I decided to wrap the entire thing in tin foil. It became increasingly hot, eventually nearly burning to the touch. I believe it was "draining" the battery by wrapping it, converting the electrical energy into heat :p
