Guys be careful how you store your extra battery packs. had a extra one for my decoy and my caller. packed both in my backpack one of them came to rest on some pliers, just happened to look for something in my pack and one was hot and melting real close to having a fire. Now i put them in a rubber glove should be fine.

I hope I never get confused, because my hearing aid battery looks like a primer. Should I put my primers and hearing aid batterys in a rubber glove?Tom

You'd be surprised how hot a penny can get real fast if you drop a 9volt battery in your pocket with change.

I had a key bridge the gap on a 9 volt battery and burn me pretty bad while in my pocket. While the 9 volt is nifty little power house, I sure would like to meet the designer. Putting both poles on the same side, half an inch a part? Really?

A 9v battery and a pinch of fine steel wool makes a great survival fire-starter kit. Just add tinder. http://lmgtfy.com/?q...teel wool" fire

We used to have problems carrying spare 9 volts in the glove box of the work truck, that was until I started putting a dab of masking tape (we had rolls by the dozen) over the top of it. Easy to remove, and even replaceable if you need to put it back on.

In boy scouts I started a fire with 2 AA batteries connected in series by touching them together and some steel wool. The batteries from a mini maglite will do in a pinch if you have some steel wool, but I would just carry a flint steel and magnesium striker personally.
