We have a scanner we have used for 2 years and we bought new batteries from food lion in town, my wife put the batteries in and we were talking to our daughter in the other room and my wife smelt something burning, she left the room and started screaming the the scanner was on fire!!! And it was!! I think it was the batteries, it was working just fine until it wasn't!!

The packaging was so hard to open that my scissors damaged 2 of the batteries. I had to throw them out.

Reverse polarity in AA batteries

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I bought a package of Smart Living AA batteries at the local {Harwich, Ma. 02645} Stop & Shop, installed 4 of them in my bathroom sink automatic faucet. The faucet refused to operate properly, so I checked the batteries with an Everyday certified battery tester. Lo & Behold there were three batteries that had a REVERSE polarity! I was an electronic technician for many years in the distant past and I have never heard of or experienced that problem. I am telling you folks about this for I thought you might want to know that this is happening, and you can take proper steps do whatever you do with this info. Otherwise I am happy with these Alkaline AA batteries. Thanks for listening. Robert E. Starkweather
