Re: Batteries in Series - Different mAh Ratings

One does not connect a "C" size battery with a "AA" size in series. 99.9% of battery compartments are configured for the same size battery. Nonetheless that has NOT stopped people from using an alkaline/ standard mix with near disasterous results. The problem is when that "lower capacity" sell exhausts, it continnues to drain... causing leak/burst in the compartment. Considering the sulfuric acid present in a standard cell, one could quite easily ruin the device, or at least render it unusable until repair.

The effect is worse for rechargeable lithium batteries. Lets leave it at dangerously worse, including fire.

No, don't do that.
