I came across this stuff while cleaning up a bit, forgot I had these things squirreled away.

These old batteries don't look too bad for their age but the flashlight gives a pretty dim light with them in it.

And as a bonus, an article from an old paper I have saved. We can Monday morning quarterback this one a bit.

Wow! For all of the Eveready "nine lives" batteries I went through as a kid, Dad should've bought stock in the company! It was the early seventies and it seemed every toy on the market required two or three d cells.

I thought this was pretty funny. Read the back of the Winchester battery, it lists one of it's uses for hearing aids. Can you imagine the size of hearing aids back then if it took D cell batteries?
