Yuck, I hate when that happens, battery acid is nasty stuff. I actually had this happen with my Wii controller, and it had been a while since I used it so it had turned all white on the battery contacts. Fortunately I was able to clean it all off though and it still works fine.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

I thought that the Wii controller uses Li-ion batteries, not alkaline, since they can be recharged if necessary.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Strange. It's only three months past the expiry date. I had alkaline Varta AA in my alarm clock several years past their expiry date and there was no leakage.
Now I use Lithium AA from 2008 with expiry date in 2023. The only issue is they're more 1,8V than 1,5V so the display is a bit oversaturated. That problem is disappearing as they're discharging.

Not a misoLEDist...

dor123, Wii controllers take standard AA batteries and cannot be recharged, however there is a kit designed to allow this. The kit has battery packs that install into the battery bay on the controller and it has pins on the bottom of that pack to contact the charging base

I also often had leaked Duracell Batteries. They leak more often than any others except maybe the cheap Zink-Carbon batteries.

Here in Germany, they aren't very common, but you can still find them relatively often, for example in 1€-Shops where you get 8 AA/AAA-Batteries or 2 9V Batteries for 1€, and even in some Hardware Stores and Supermarkets. They also sometimes come included with Devices like TVs for the remote.

And now back to Duracell:
A few Years ago, we ordered one of These Pringles Speakers that you get when you buy 2 or 3 cans. The Speaker and the Duracell Batteries that were included were never used and the Batteries were still in their original shrinkwrap, but they already managed to leak.

Leaked Duracell batteries are familiar thing for me too. I noted, that stated expiry date is imperative.

I rarely see Energizer batteries.
You can read in Finnish, how Duracell Procell 9V- battery exploded: http://www.mattikaki.fi/turvallisuus/duracell.htm
I also noted, that some Varta batteries discharged, but not leaked, just in expiry date.

Alkaline batteries can't explode in fire, since they don't have a flameable electrolite like Lithium batteries.

This exploded Duracell was 6 years over expiry date, but unused. Its owner noted, that the other end is bulged and he disassembled it. A moment later one cell suddendly exploded with loud sound.

Never ever disassemble any batteries whether it's fresh or expired regardless of size.
