PSA: Used Scanner Batteries
« on: January 01, 2014, 06:49:46 PM »
Not sure if anyone else figured it out or not but once your batteries get used up by your scanner, they still have have alot of life left in them use with a wireless optical mouse for your computer. It works out pretty good considering my scanner burns 4 AA's pretty quick. Hope this helps some of you.

Do your wallet a favor, get a car lighter adapter.  I think I got mine at a truck stop.

On a different subject, but similar idea, I have found the fluorescent lamps that quit working in fixtures with magnetic ballast will sometime work in fixtures with the newer electronic ballast.  Lets squeeze a few mow hours of life out of them. :)
