Home IT Humor Geeky Pics Wasteful packaging: The CMOS battery


  1. Don’t you know those batteries can explode if they’re bashed too hard, so they must be wrapped in bubble-wrap, cotton wool, and a massive box to prevent the awful possibility of a 3 volt tiny battery explosion?

    I had a better one from a vendor of big blue boxen which make the internets work.

    The box was 400mm x 600mm x 400mm and had exactly ONE 2 meter power cord in it – plus the associated plastic air bags and paper stuffing.

  2. I once ordered fifty CMOS batteries for a project and they came in a box smaller than the one pictured along with other items from Amazon.. wow.
