I’m so used to devices with rechargeable batteries now it’s weird when I deal with something that uses plain old AAs. It used to be that when something in the house suddenly needed batteries there were tons of other rarely used things that you could “borrow” them from. Now when the batteries that shipped in the remote die before the device does it’s an unsolvable emergency. “People, I’m afraid we are going to have to leave the house and purchase actual new batteries.”
