Thanks for this. I has assumed that it was some kind of chemical breakdown within the battery, but I don't know the mechanism, or some kind of circuit completion across the insulation in the battery, but again I don't know the mechanism. The air circuit one really hadn't occurred to me.My perception is that rechargeable batteries lose their charge much faster than non-rechargeable ones, and don't know why this is, but may give a clue as to the mechanism. I presume that batteries also lose their charge more when connected to the device as even if it's off there's more potential for a degree of current leakage.
