    The dollar store sells Panasonic carbon batteries.

    They don't seem to ever leak, and a 4 pack of AAs is $1.

    Change them every Jan 1st.

    A guy in OH unboxed a NIB Black Knight and it still had carbon batteries in it, dead, but un-leaked.

    Even new alkaline batteries can leak when the diode fails and they don't like being charged.

    The regular carbon batteries don't seem to mind being charged by the board.

    Quoted from rplante:

    Just remember they ALL can and will leak.

    Exactly!

    Just change them out the first of the year (or right now if you missed it), and be done with it.

    You spend $$$$$ on a game, you can afford to treat it right.
