Simple Hack if you ever find yourself missing one battery.

Items Required: Aluminum Foil

This hack works on many items requiring batteries.

Step 1:

In this example I will demonstrate what to do if you have one battery and your flashlight requires at least two batteries.

Step 2:

To replace the 2nd battery you can use aluminum foil rolled up to similar size of actual battery.

Step 3:

Next step is to place the aluminum foil in the flashlight followed by regular battery.

Step 4:

If you did steps above correctly you should be able to use your flashlight with only one battery when 2 batteries are required.

    okay thanks! do you know if this will work with a nerf gun?

    It will run at half the voltage, expect it to be atleast half as bright, of not even less bright.
