Get 32 AA Batteries from a Single 6 Volt Battery? Maybe Not So Much…

No 32 AA batteries in my lantern battery

Before you stock up on 6V lantern batteries to cash in on Lifehacker’s Get 32 AA Batteries from a Single 6 Volt Battery tip, take a gander at the horrifying discovery I made tonight (in a frantic effort to scrounge up enough batteries to power my Pignose amp.)

Inside a 6 volt Heavy Duty Eveready lantern battery you’ll find batteries all right–four useless batteries roughly 3/4″ longer than a D cell.

Guess you can’t believe everything you read on the internets. (Maybe the title Gagfilms should have tipped me off.)
