Please remove the batteries before storing stuff for 20 years
@IceWolf Polaroid flash add-on. Someone forgot to remove the batteries and then left it in a box for 20 years
@wxcafe I know this situation far too well. If we ever develop the technology to reach back in time and slap our past selves on the back of the head, I'm not going to know what hit me.
@wxcafe this also applies to lithium ion batteries ;_; pure pain when a battery has discharged beyond repair
@drwho i threw the whole thing away, it wasn't worth salvaging (plus I'm pretty sure the contacts were dead on both sides, and probably the interior circuitery
