If that really works, it's an awesome thing to know. Did you personally test it?
I was skeptical when a buddy of mine told me that he could distinguish a good battery (flashlight style, not motorcycle style) from a dead one by whether it bounces or not, but it really does seem to work.
Take a known good battery and drop it on end from about a half an inch onto a hard surface, it will land with a dull thud. Do the same thing with dead battery and it will bounce a few times. Try it, it works.
If you get the batteries mixed up, remember: Thud = Good, Bounce = Bad.
That's funny Kurt that you got such a thrill about this...
It does work most of the time.
The guys will find it interesting...
1st John 1:9
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Of course the depleted batteries bounce 'cause they are empty. Works with thermos bottles too. Unfortunately I no longer bounce whether full or empty.

You have no idea how excited I was to find these at Walmart for less than five bucks. Retro styling to be sure, but more importantly a morse signal button. Never see that anymore. Lovely. Do you have any idea how cool and satisfying it is to send a message across a dark field at night and have it be understood.

This flashlight doesn't have the retro appeal you like, but it's light output is incredible (and at least you can send an SOS message across several fields). I bought one for myself and was so impressed, I got a couple for my sons for Christmas. Well worth $20.00.
