And this is why we need to put warning labels on EVERYTHING...
@ThePandaPool , nah, we definitely need to remove warning labels and let nature sort itself out
@GonMoose the Great, I think the Darwin Awards are running out of trophies.
@riidii, I'm not sure if I believe in evolution
@ThePandaPool , this is also why lawyers exist.
@GonMoose the Great, you mean short itself out?
@ThePandaPool , I'm not opposed to not putting labels on everything, but I do have a realistic question.
Why are we accustomed to putting in batteries one way then opposite right next to it? Is it because of the way electric currents work? Is it more expensive for manufacturers to make the piece of electronic allow batteries all facing the same way, thus "moving" the wiring on the inside?
This person is dumb for putting in the batteries in this way, because we all have the base common knowledge of it. But why didn't manufacturers start making electronics like this in the first place? It seems like a more user friendly way to do things.
@Bench, I would like to explain that to you, but it's much simpler to tell you that those are not rechargeable batteries and their position is irrelevant to why it exploded...
@ThePandaPool , My coworkers are notorious for doing this. They also have a habit of putting batteries in wrong in delicate equipment. I don't know how many times I have had to send out equipment because this either fries the circuit board are causes the batteries to explode covering everything with battery acid.
@Bench, It's more for how the batteries are wired. If they are wired in series, or parallel. Most of the time it's in series so you need to connect them + to - so alternating then makes wiring said device way less complicated.
Isn’t the problem that she put non rechargeable batteries in a charging station? Like don’t you specifically have to get the rechargeable ones cause y’know the contents of normal batteries tend to y’know react when heated. (I don’t know I took chem in high school and got a B)
@FearTamer, Yes, alkaline batteries can be recharged. However, it is not considered to be cost effective and does have some risks. Recharging any battery can cause the production of gas within the battery. Since an alkaline battery is normally sealed, very high pressures can be created within it. This can rupture the seal, resulting in leakage of the contents or even explosion. Rechargeable batteries including RAM (rechargeable alkaline manganese) batteries are specially designed to help reduce this risk.
These people vote
@AndySoshal, yeah but that only happens every once in a while. These people drive everyday though
@AndySoshal, but they don't want to elect ron.
Someone needs to be charged with battery.
Clearly the problem is a Duracell battery in a Panasonic charger. Don't mix and match your electronics people!!
@hardlyable, but this "massage" I found in my sister's room is making really creamy potatoes.
Oh ... man. Can I ask how stupid you are?
@DrSin, someone already asked. This meme was the answer.
Stupid question. What?
@Soul Eaten, the batteries she put in are not sized for this charger. So the positive node on the charger was the only thing touching the AAA battery. This causes an incomplete circuit and overloaded the battery.
(I think, I’m a chemist, not an electrician)
@Fierce Deity Link, some chargers you can charge AAA and AA's. I looks like they're slotted in
@Soul Eaten, I think you’re supposed to use rechargeable batteries, and it looks like they used regular disposable ones
@Paschdaddy, I have one similar, and it charges both
@RepostSniper, with HI res I think I can make out do not charge
@Paschdaddy, oh man you guys were right. The resolution on my phone made it look like the size was off. Definitely didn’t even notice that the batteries were not rechargeable. Wouldnt even make sense for an incomplete circuit to transfer power lmao. Shows what happens when I don’t sleep, logic goes out the window
Thanks for the insight!
I don't get it 😟
I love you guys. Always make me laugh with y’all’s comments. Ty ty ty
Clearly the issue is it’s a Panasonic charger, and Duracell batteries! That’s what happens when you use the wrong charger
I know these are the wrong battery type, but the bottoms don't touch the metal connections
Hello! Time to blow some minds! These are non rechargeable batteries- however! They can be recharged- just you won't find a safe device to do it. Low amp source raised slowly over hours as not to heat the battery like this and it can be done.
Found your problem. You needed to flip the batteries upside down every other one
Oh quit overreacting!
