Question about battery cover...


While building a side by side AAA pack the soldering iron just glanced the plastic covering on the negative side of one of the cells causing it to melt just a bit. I'm getting a voltage from the pack, but I've yet to charge it. Should I replace the cell or does the plastic covering actually do anything.

If you are talking about a Nimh cell, no the plastic is just there as an insulator. The entire can of the cell is the negative terminal.
