Use #48 for a Pocket Knife: Prying out Batteries


I’ve previously written about pocket knives helping with battery compartments being secured by small screws. However, once inside that compartment sometimes contains batteries that are crammed in there for one reason or another (a snug fit is actually a nice benefit). Recently I dug out my old pocket dictionary (yes those existed) and luckily had two new batteries to swap in. My excitement was met with frustration as I couldn’t use an array of small screwdrivers I had handy to remove the batteries. In steps my newest (maybe oldest?) pocket knife to easily dispatch those now 15+ year old batteries.
