60 Year old AA battery

Apparently others don’t think this is as cool as I do. Posted on Twitter and not a single reaction. Here’s what I said…

“I found this old AA battery (probably from the 1960s) in some old electronic device. Very surprised at no sign of leakage and my meter showed it had 1.43V. My dad worked at Southern Bell before being renamed to BellSouth and later merged with AT&T.”

I might add it’s hard for me to leave a battery in a device more than a few months today without it leaking.
