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.

Which cells, of the type used in a portable radio, contain sulfuric acid?
