theres guys on craigslist that will buy them they dont give you though, plus like the above poster said retailers charge you a friggin 12.00 fee if you dont give them one in return. (too bad you cant get 12 bucks for returning one w/o buying a new one, because its usually more than the people who buy them will give you)

On that note, for batteries that you fill up and seal yourself...does anyone know why, after they collapse a cell or whatever, you cant just open it up and fill it back up with whatever solution it was you put in it primarily?

i've always wondered what the people who buys these "use once and destroy" batteries do with them, they've gotta be opening em up and refilling em and using them right?

You know they're called lead-acid batteries right? The liquid is...well...battery acid, and there's a lead post that pulls charge out of the acid. If that post corrodes you get just as dead a cell as if the acid was gone.

That's the oversimplified version.
