Three… two… one: we have liftoff. At least, that’s what you’ll probably be thinking when you check out this super-cool clip that depicts gloriously languid form what happens when you take a blowtorch to two Energizer “calculator batteries” (which these gents seem to have a pretty difficult time wrenching open):
Tell me that’s not trippy as shit. And tell me those batteries, as they shuffle off this mortal coil, resemble rockets ready to depart Earth’s gravitational pull.
This video, courtesy of the Slow-Mo Guys, shows all sort of reactions, ranging from mild bursts of flame to full-on conflagrations. Needless to say, you probably shouldn’t try this shit at home.
