9volt battery hack

I think somebody posted the lattern battery trick...I replaced some 9 volt batteries in my smoke detectors as an annual task and thought, these batteries still have some power...and no other use for them....took a couple apart and there are actually AAAA batteries inside (engergizer and duracell at least)...only problem now is I dont have any use for them either

As always, remember to do all of this under a parent's supervision...

The electric meter hack looks neat. Not that I would try that one. If you do be sure to remove before the meter reader gets there every month.

Yes the electric meter trick will get you into trouble, but not from theft of electricity. The charges will probably result when all the engineers at the electric company die from fits of laughter.

Yeah, I was wondering if it would work. If it did why not just put a large magnet on the side of the meter level with the spinning dial (which assumes it would be affected by the magnet and not made of alum or plastic). Maybe that is why a lot of meters are now digital.
