Convert AA batteries to C or D in an emergency



So when does AA = C or D? Well, when talking about batteries, AA batteries can equal C or D batteries when you use some handy adapters made by Lenmar and Sanyo. And did you know you can take apart a 9-volt battery to get six smaller cells that you can substitute for AAA batteries? Watch the latest Gadget Guy video to find out more.

(Special thanks to my kids, Corey and Jenna, for their help with the "special effects" in the video.)
