    Question Have you also noticed Black Smuges on your Store Receipt's when there is a Battery in the Bag?

    Several Times I have noticed when I put and Expired round Battery for my Refrigerator Temperature Guage or a Food Timer, in a Zip Loc Bag, the Receipts all had black Smuges on them. I was taking it to a Battery Place to get a new one, I wonder if the Battery is somehow effecting Store Receipts and Smudging them. ? Let me know your thoughts. I am refering to big Black Smuges on the Paper. Paul

    No it is not Batteries! I got another smuged one from the Pizza Guy. Must bee The Paper, itself. I guess. The only reason I posted it is because I noticed a lot of it happening.

    If it's thermal paper they're using, anything warm that comes in contact with it will blacken the paper. Hot pizza will blacken it easily.

    Exactly. And those "coin batteries" have been known to generate some heat that can affect thermal paper.

    So true. They can be ruined by about anything. Glass cleaner, hand sanitizer, alcohol over spray etc. and they are worthless.

    I used to notice it with the gas receipts I kept in my ashtray for figuring out mileage, made me suspect the little light bulb in there was actually on the whole time the car was, rather than just when you opened the tray.
