What Not To Do With Your Battery Pack

Just gotta show everyone what your little ole' battery pack can do if you leave it lying around for students to connect the wires together.... lol.

These batteries were almost flat having been used in the wireless mic at church for the morning but they still managed to melt right through the plastic.... batteries were too hot to hold and the plastic stunk the place out.

Sure was ... I was hunting around for the source of the smell... crawling under desks to sniff power supplies, etc... but the EZ-B was on the desk - literally right under my nose!

Woo ! I'm glad nothing important was damaged.
