Nice, I love it...
I remember when Electro Harmonics was a reputable Company, and everybody in the industry was copying their designs...

I was never a fan of their guitar pedals but I had a certain level of respect but that battery has put them straight onto the shit list!

But see the battery I am using in this picture:



It cost me all of 50 cents ($1 for a pack of two at the dollar store).

I'm starting to think it makes sense to put zinc carbon batteries in low drain devices. Recent experience suggests they are less prone to leaking than alkaline batteries, and in terms of cost per mAh, I think the super heavy duty batteries are more economical.

Maybe it is time for a renaissance of this old-fashioned technology?
I'm not an EE--what am I doing here?

Meh .. those just can't beat this, when powered with this battery, it will provide you a fresh electron , eh .. pure & natural electricity that will bring the audio quality produced in your audio circuit to a new level, a superb and refreshing sound as fresh as a lemon juice. No more fake & artificially sound... yadda..yadda..

Free shipping, only $75 per Kg with minimal order of 10 Kg, hurry, it won't last long cause the current batch is the best quality harvested from this season, and they're all planted in an environmentally friendly soil and properly treated without using any nasty pesticide.

The electrodes (ultra pure 99.99999% copper & zinc metal strip) and the cables can be purchased separately, only $50 per pair, sold in 50 pairs per package.




..LOL  ;D

Better still, the electrodes are 100% pure alloy of copper and zinc with other pure elements or compounds made from pure elements. All the elements making up the electrode alloys are 100% oxygen free, except for the element oxygen of course, which is 100% pure oxygen.

100% is much better then 99.99999%.

I'm pretty sure this was meant as a joke or novelty item, like an EHX t-shirt. Look at the picture of Mike Matthews!

More internal resistance... Fair call, I will just use my alkaline battery with a 1 ohm resistor. Problem solved.
