    they bounce because they are sealed and give off gas as they discharge. the more the gas builds up inside the more discharged they are and the better they bounce.

    every time i see this one, after i stop staring at her ass i wonder how long she practiced to be able to do that. do you think she went out in the backyard and practiced cup flipping while pulling weeds out of the garden?

    There is no room on this forum for scientific facts! There has to be some way to turn this into a "Jews are the Devil" conspiracy. :c

    random info :coffee:

    "We hired a lab to run new, improved tests that mimic the main uses of AA batteries: to power digital cameras and flashlights. We tested 10 alkaline and two lithium batteries. Neither type is rechargeable. (In past tests, we’ve found that rechargeables of 2,350 milliamp-hours or more are best for often-used toys like game controllers.)


    In cameras.

    This test mimics everyday use, zooming, flashing, shooting, and resting until batteries die. Energizer Ultimate lithium took 682 shots in our tough test; Eveready Gold alkaline, just 52.

    In flashlights.

    This test involves the equivalent of turning on a flashlight for 4 minutes every hour for 8 hours, letting it sit for 16 hours, and repeating the cycle until batteries die.

    Battery life ranged from about 7.5 hours, for the Energizer Ultimate lithium, down to about 5.2, for the Eveready Gold alkaline. The best alkaline, Duracell Ultra Power, lasted about 6.7 hours.

    Bottom line.

    Energizer Ultimate lithium lasted longest in both tests. Lithiums are good in high-drain devices like cameras. Alkalines have shorter lives but cost less, and some perform almost as well in low-drain devices like flashlights and remotes.

    Most alkalines have a shelf life of about seven years, but some claim up to 10 years. Energizer Ultimate lithium claims 15 years; Energizer Advanced, 10years"

    They just came out with a battery that's main components are wood and sodium. They are rechargeable by 100's of times over the lithium due to the flexibility of wood. Cost is pennies per unit once mass marketed.

    There's actually a little vent hole on the side near one end. The gas escapes through this hole . Also, the act of providing power (read electrons) results in loss of mass.

    I just dropped my grandchild on it's head and they bounced a little but remained standing, although inverted. What does this mean?
