9V Battery question
Posted by: Kraemer
Date: April 14, 2019 03:42PM
I have a few Tesoro’s that operate on 9 volt batteries and I was wondering if anyone had ever experienced a leak with these batteries. Thinking back, I cannot recall ever seeing a 9V battery leak. Any experiences?

They must be sealed pretty good. I have never seen one leak either, but I suppose it is possible.



Bells and whistles are nice, but nothing will substitute for the basic understanding of the hobby.

Personally, I've never seen one leak either but I'd think they would have to over a long period.
My little brother (CZ5) is a battery expert, when he sees this post he'll give us complete low down on this issue.

Never seen my 9 volts leak but have had two or three AA's leak, caught them before any damage was done.

I have never had one leak but they are alkaline batteries and subject to leakage as all alkaline batteries are.

I just went and checked my 9v battery supply and one of them is bulging which to me indicates that it is going to start leaking.
