battery acid has damaged my devices
I had old-style batteries (the ones with acid) in my track pad and it stopped working. I opened the battery slot and found that one of the batteries leaked acid, some of which became stuck on the wall of the slot. I tried cleaning it out as best as I could, but it doesn't work now that I've replaced the old defective batteries with fresh ones.
And to make things worse, the same has happened with my wireless keyboard and the battery that's in deepest is stuck and I haven't found any kind of tool that can pull it out.
Any suggestions, or do I have to spring for new devices?
