As I said, the electrolyte in most camera batteries, maybe all, is
alkaline, so it won't react much with baking soda.
The baking soda may have been useful as an abrasive, but I wouldn't have
put it into the mix.

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.
