For those of you with expensive portable equipment or even flashlight like Mag-lites. One of the worse things you can put into a device is an Alkaline battery. They are destructive and leak every time. They could be considered hazardous material the way they destroy electronics by their leaking and corrosive fluids. I am surprised that the EPA has not outlawed these terrible junk batteries and there are many better choices that will cost you less in the long run. I suggest you get Tenergy NMH or Nickel Metal Hydride batteries that may cost more initially but when you can use them 1000 times there is not a lot to figure out that they are worth a pile of money saved. I even have some AA cells from 2001 that still work. The important part though is that the DO NOT LEAK. Abandon the purchase of junk Alkaline batteries, save money and your equipment too. Head over to All-battery and buy the Tenergy product like I do and no more trouble. No I do not own or work at ALL-battery. I just have had very good luck buying their product and not one failure yet- 9V all the way to AAA and they have rechargeable 123A batteries too. Here is to make it easy for you-
It is a very good chance that this deck will become a part unit with that kind of damage.
