Saving/Reviving AA/AAA rechargeable batteries

When you have an AA,AAA etc. rechargeable battery that does not register, seems dead, in your charger do the following: Place the seemingly dead battery negative terminal, flat end, against the negative terminal of a good battery of the same type and hold a pair of metal tongs, you can use something else metal, across the two positive terminals for thirty seconds. Place the seemingly dead battery back in the charger and it should now register and charge up. I threw away a lot of batteries before I learned this. It works every time I have tried it and has saved me a ton of batteries. Hope it works for you.

Interesting. I have never tried it that way. Thanks. My main battery charger is a high quality one with a carefully controlled charge rate. It will not charge the ones that have been drawn down too low to register. We have another, less esoteric charger and I use it to get those started. Your way is simpler!
