In the April 2014 issue, I reviewed the Magnetic-mount LED Work Light that’s carried by Lee Valley Tools (click here if you wish to read the review). I had only one complaint – and it was that my rechargeable batteries didn’t fit, and that non-rechargeable batteries lasted on average only five hours – so I use this otherwise excellent light sparingly.
On Twitter (where you can find me @1snugthejoiner), a reader suggested I peel off the branded outer wrapping of my rechargeable batteries, and they would fit just fine. I didn’t know one could do that and still have the batteries function well and safely. (What can I say…all I know about batteries is that they cost a lot and I never seem to have the ones I need.)
So if it is a valid practice to peel off that plastic, well, I rescind my single negative observation.
