Q: Recently I've cleaned out my toolbox and junk drawer and amassed a sizable amount of batteries. I suspect that some of them are new, and others partially used— and perhaps a few are even dead. Is there any way I can test them to see which ones I should recycle, and which ones I should hang on to?

Editor: Well, our solution to this has simply been to put our batteries something (a remote control, a calculator) and see what works! But there's probably a better less time-consuming way. Suggestions for Rebecca?
