Ok, its not a light... but it does take batteries

Was recently doing some cleaning & re-arranging .. and came across a box with some of my old toys from long ago when I was a kid. This one is a (probably early 80's) GE Walkie-Talkie (LOL I wonder if my brother still has the other half of the pair...)

It is best to use Duracell or Duracell Quantum batteries; don't use the cheap generic store brand batteries in something that vintage because those cheap generic store brand batteries do have problems like leaking inside the battery compartment and damaging the device; this has happened to me before when I use those cheap generic store brand batteries. I've never have problems with Duracell batteries and they lasted longer even after I put them in the disposable alkaline/nickel cadmium buddy l super charger and still last that long after being recharged in that buddy l super charger I got this charger off eBay brand new in box.

That charger only charges D size, C size, AA size AAA size batteries up to 4 cells at a time and it has a battery storage compartment on top of charger so you can put the charged in there, 3 colored indcator LED lights for each cell being charged. Yellow LED- charging, Green LED- Finished charging, Red LED- Bad battery- dispose of

For low-power devices I do just use the 'cheap' batteries LOL (ofcourse if I plan to let something sit unused for any length of time I remove the batteries - just for the reasons you mention like leaking..)

For things that drain batteries more quickly I use rechargeable

But this 'buddy' charger.. it can recharge normal(non rechargeable) alkaline's ?? . I'd always heard they could blow up if you charged 'em ..

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

I've personally found that Duracells leak more than any other major alkaline battery brand. I can't even remember the last time I had an Energizer or Rayovac leak, but I throw away a handful of leaking Duracells every year.

Carbon-zinc batteries (the ones called Heavy Duty or Super Heavy Duty) are good for low-drain stuff because they're extremely unlikely to leak. I've personally never found a leaked one.

Indeed, there have been chargers that advertise the ability to charge alkalines. I'm not sure it's a practice I would ever try or recommend, though. Some sources say alkalines can be charged hundreds of times and provide an excellent alternative to NiCD or NiMH batteries. Others say they usually only charge a dozen or so times, and the risk of leaking is very high.
