Many camera batteries (all?) use an alkaline electrolyte.
Dilution is safer, as it's always predictable.

Either way is bad, and you may leave other reaction products.
At every step, DW leaves you in better shape than you were before.

You get here anyway

Got a need to read Bar codes? http://www.barcodechip.com
Bi-directional read of UPC-A, UPC-E, EAN-8, EAN-13, JAN, and Bookland, with
two or five digit supplemental codes, in an 8 pin chip, with NO external parts.
