In my experience, I've had a variety of batteries seem to recharge themselves over time. Granted, it was extremely small, like say if my flashlight had dead batteries and I was too lazy to change them, in about a month I'd have earned myself a few seconds of light. But a month is a long time to wait for a few seconds.. I'm no scientist, but making batteries cold does extend their life, and *maybe* speeds in their apparent recharge.. or I could be nuts
My brother's more scientific minded than me, and his best guess is something about diffusion.. the battery's use drains a lot of molecules in the battery, and over time the few unused ones spread over the whole of the battery or some other thing like that.. I must be real bored if I'm trying this hard to figure this out
"640K ought to be enough for anybody."
Huh? I'm sorry, I was thinking about cake.
