[time-nuts] Tongue Testing battery charge levels....

It could be a 'taste' thing.  Eveready tastes better than Duracell?

So you wouldn't advise it with an Eveready #497 battery?  VVBG

Even with that one I can't imagine getting enough current across the heart
to matter.  
There is more than one reason that defibrillators use such large paddles
placed across the chest cavity.
Still, I value the functionality of my tongue, so I'll skip that test.

Hello, TimeNutters--

I have used the "tip-of-the-tongue" test for determining
the state of charge of batteries for many years when
my bench meters are elsewhere.  The strength of the
bitter taste is proportional to the voltage and I have gotten
pretty good at estimating the charge condition of the
ubiquitus little 9 volt batteries as well as a few others
to within +/-  one volt or two.  I recommend not using
this procedure for anything over a 12 volt battery as
above that level the bitter taste turns into an unpleasant
bite.
