A Great Tip On How To Tell If A Battery Is Good Or Bad

      This is such a great tip I just had to share it with you.  Often I will give the grandchildren new batteries for something and then later find batteries lying around.  I can't tell if they are the used batteries that they didn't throw away, or extra new ones
     To find out if a battery is bad or good, hold it vertically a few inches from a solid flat surface and drop it onto the surface.  A good battery will not bounce and will often stay standing.  A used battery will bounce several times and then fall over.  Amazing, isn't it?
       Here is a link to a YouTube video if you want to see a demonstration:
