Re: 9V BATTERY DESTROYS HOME
I learned my leason with 9v batteries a few months ago. I was changing the batteries in the fire alarms in the house, and had a couple of 9v's in my pocket. All of the sudden my leg started to burn. I reached in to pull the batteries out and one of them was smoking hot. I think a quarter made the connection between the posts, not sure. But I researched it and learned my lesson, with a red mark on my leg to show for it.
