    Default Advice needed.

    when i was changing the set of batteries in the camera for a new set, i saw that one of the batteries had damage on the body, resulting in the outer wrapping peeling off.

    just a teeny weeny bit of paint peel, nothing to lose sleep over.

    if you are afraid to use it, then just go buy a new set of eneloop and pass this cosmetically damaged set to me.

    Oh.. that is just that particular one battery that is damaged only..only if the battery ends are exposed(naked) means that i need to dispose of it, right?

    i got dings on my eneloops too and they still work safely.

    yes, i will be more careful when i see the ends being damaged.

    just use some discretion and judge wisely.

    happy shooting!

    Life's simplicity can sometimes be complicated. Photography is a art in itself.
