Simple and Easy Way To Test Alkaline Batteries

Almost all cameras these days use some sort of Lithium-ion battery, but chances are there are equipment and gear at home or in your workshop that use Alkaline batteries. The above video shows a simple and easy way to find out if a battery is good or bad.

This test will only work for Alkaline batteries, not Lithium-ion rechargeable ones. Drop the battery (with the flat, negative end down) from a couple of inches up. If the battery is charged, it will make a solid thud and most likely stay standing. If, however, the battery is dead, it will bounce and fall over immediately.
