- The mystical art of battery rubbage
It’s not Electrons is it, that’s daft, that’s what They wanbt you to think. Isn’t the source of all consistent power Hamsters? and batteries are just full of tiny hamsters on mini treadmills. But hamsters do die, it’s a sad fact. And when a few die the rest have a big funeral, then theres a wake and few days off for bereavement. They take the pish though, but when you give them a shake they know they have to go back to work. Eventually they all die though 🙁Posted 4 years ago
Doesn’t work like that, like a factory replacing it’s workers with new ones when they conk out. The battery is a sealed unit. Have a close look and you won’t see any doors on a battery. The little mites don’t clock in and out and go home to the family or get to ride their hamsterballs out in the hills. They just work and have funerals, that’s it. Pretty depressing. Maybe you’ll appreciate your batteries a bit more now hmmn?Posted 4 years ago

Sheesh, I had no idea, the poor little blighters. 😥
Well, I’m a changed man – I’ll never roll batteries again, just for the hell of it. Inside, it must be absolute carnage.Posted 4 years agogofasterstripesSubscriber
Warming them will increase the rate of the elec-trickery reaction.
Remotes hardly use any power, so that will likely be enough for a few more zaps.
Shaking/rolling – likely increases contact quality and therefore available volts/milliamps . Check for corrosion!
Anyone read any Pratchett? I also suspect the Imps may be tired/snoozing.Posted 4 years ago
Gyroscopes n stuff do the rest to keep the treadmills on an even keel
Next you’ll be telling me that Brigadier Hamster’s got a periscope and when he sees my hand getting closer to the mouse he squeaks his mini hamster orders to get all paws to the oars?
After today I don’t think I will ever look at the world in quite the same way.Posted 4 years ago
Mouse batteries just failed, but after some judicious rubbage I’ve Lazarus-ed the Duracells and I’m back up and running. I expect another five or six rubs today and I’ll be sorted. 😉
STW collective, explain why rubbing batteries works if you please.
And what’s your time record for extra power obtained through rubbage?Posted 4 years ago
