    Kara...... shhh. :0)

    I was just wondering how many people remove the batteries from thier camera's and other gear on a regular basis? Just incase the batteries explode or something of that nature.

    edit> It was pointed out I should specify that im talking about AA's, but this can cover other batteries as well. Also rechargeables.

    I remove to recharge, which is pretty often. I don't take the battery out every day though. Same for my flash.

    No I do not.
    I have a Canon 430EZ flash that the batteries leaked in and it does not work now. I cleaned the contacts with alcohol, but that did not help.

    I made an edit pointing out that im talking about AA's, rechargeable and not, but other battery types could be commented on as well.
