comment
" ...  I opened the end of the thermometer to remove the battery and the battery had corroded. ...

The thermometer no longer works even with a new battery, and it only worked for less than a month.  ...  "
comment

comment
" ...  Opened this one up and the battery had leaked brown acid everywhere, including on my hands, so I guess that explains it, and then the whole mechanism fell out, so it didn't even seem worth it to replace the battery even if I did have one.  ...  "
