    Check out this Video
    Remember, 9 Vs are everywhere and are likely to be the last left on the shelves... Not to mention in the smoke detectors. ;)

    Handy little piece of info there, thanks Melbo.

    I would have never tried to pry one apart for fear of some godawful battery meltdown/explosion that my parents warned me about as a child. :)

    Yep they are 4A (AAAA) size but not all 9V's are made in this configuration.

    We used to do that to fit a 9v bat in the handpiece of the old style 500 telephone( don't ask why I'd be stuffing a 9v battery into a government telephone)...just stretch the linked cells out( leav 'em connected) becaust he original 9vstyle wouldn't fit the hole handset.

    C cells and cell phones

    took 4 c cells taped them + to - and used a jumper wire to hook into the cell phone. Used the wire that went to the AC recharger. He ain't got grid or a Genny. Plug it into the phone, hold the wires on the batt and away it went, worked just fine, Maybe just luck on the polarity, not sure there.[dunno] snowbyrd
