    Default Making a cell phone call when your battery's dead

    Ever need to make a call and your battery has died? If you don't have access to electricity, you can warm up the battery, by whatever means is available , even if only rubbing it to allow friction to warm it up. The increased heat increased the chemical reaction in the battery enough to make a quick phone call. This is useful for emergencies!

    Hey Ramsey -

    Your tip came in handy this week for me.

    I have a TV display at Bloomington South, and use a remote control to turn it on, since I can't access it directly. On Thursday morning, the remote wouldn't turn on the TV. I kept pushing the buttons, and nothing happened.

    The remote had been in the car overnight, so I took out the batteries, and foudn them to be quite cold. Remembering your tip, I warmed them up, put them back into the remote, and it worked just fine.

    Keep the tips coming!
