12-Volt Battery Hack Saves $40

Here’s a cool trick you can do with a 12-volt battery (cost= less than $2.00 for two).  When you open it up and peel back the case with a screwdriver, you’ll find eight 1.5 volt button-cell batteries, the kind you use for watches and calculators, that normally cost about $4.99 each. 

You can power six different electronic devices with the batteries you remove from just one 12-volt battery, and save about 40 bucks.
