Save Or Not?

I was doing some cleaning yesterday and came across a couple of AA batteries tucked in the back of a drawer. I was pretty sure they weren't any good, but I couldn't put my hands on my tester and I needed an alternate way to find out if I should save or discard them.

This video showed me a simple way to figure it out.  Sure enough, my batteries had no charge left in them and I tossed them in the Old Battery Bag. When the bag gets full I'll take it in for recycling.
