If you could be any type of battery, what type would you be?

I’d choose rechargable AAA, slim and trim and able to power small devices for hours. There’s nothing like buying portable electronics that say simply, “Required: one AAA battery.” AAs can be bulky, especially when you need to use four or more at a time and when was the last time you used a D battery for anything other than a flashlight? 9-volts are the black sheep of the battery family, though they still play a vital role filling the gap between 8 and 10 volts.

The worst type of battery: a watch battery. Too small, easily lost, and a pain in the ass to replace.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
