Maybe it has to be that exact brand??? I haven't tried it yet. I might buy one every week till I find a brand that this works on.

Am I missing something, because those to links you showed me are not the same brand as the video I posted. Yours was Duracel and Panasonic I believe and mine was Heavy Duty. Is Heavy Duty the name of the brand that I showed or is it actually a Panasonic brand. I believe the two you posted both had something different in them. One had 4 Duracel D batteries and the other had four non-labeled batteries that looked longer than D sized batteries. I think I'm just gonna have to go find that battery and do it myself so I will know first hand if it is true or not

On a side note, weren't the 4 Duracell batteries labeled also. Why would Duracell waste money on putting labels around batteries that go inside other batteries when the customer isn't even suppose to see those batteries. That just makes me think the dude put those in there himself to try and make the other video look fake.

I just went outside and opened up my car battery and there was six 6 volt batteries in it and when I opened them there was 32 AA's in them. I'm set for life.
