How does Batterycorrosion or Battery leakage happen in devices like MsPacman Tabletop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I read stuff about battery leakages or battery corrosion. Is that if you leave the same battery sitting in the video gaming device for like 5 years? Anyone know? It's not going to do that if I have the batteries sitting in the device for a couple months will it?

yea it happens over time definately more than a few months though as long as it's active. a couple months should be find as long as you have newer batteries. The older batteries had problems with leaking after awhile but you should be fine.

If you're worried, open it up every once in awhile and check it.

We have foam pressing up against the battery so the batteries don't move around that much. I remember as a kid we had problems with ms pacman and frogger where we'd have to tape the batteries to stay in place. They made this device kind of shoddy for some reason. Batteries easily fall out.

Fun little toy tho. Alot of ppl on ebay selling them and think they're broken but they must also forget like I did that the batteries will not stay in place unless you have something holding it in place.
