    How about a door stop? Or a paper weight? You could also use it as a piece of art and admire it while hanging it inside a picture frame.

    In states like California with strict gun control they are often used as throwing weapons for home protection.

    It's little wonder new members don't hang around for too long!

    New123 please elaborate. To what other uses are you refering?

    When somebody starts a thread with absolutely no information or question to answer, exactly what answer should he expect?

    IMHO, it's not too much to expect an actual question. My crystal ball is in the shop.:p

    He should be given a chance and more information requested.

    If that isn't forthcoming then anything goes! :p

    I threw mine at someone when I ran out of batteries....


    Seriously though, here's the information we got from the OP:
    1. I have a battery.
    2. I want to do something with this battery
    3. There was a question mark, so it must be a question


    A question that isn't well thought out will elicit a response on par.

    I'm well aware of the information from the OP and a list isn't really necessary, I understand, I too have a balll, and I'll stick to my previous response. :p

    Hi New123,

    You might want to provide more info, like what type of battery, what do you want to connect to etc, maybe a better picture.

    If you ask the right question, you will get some good help. :)

    You've already got a thread on this going:

    http://forum.allaboutcircuits.com/showthread.php?t=79098

    What do you hope to get different with this thread?

    As in the other thread, people have been trying to get you to describe what it is you are trying to do. Just saying that you want to use it for other things is not a useful description of what you are trying to do.

    New123, do you know that your laptop battery is made form LiIon cells that are extremely dangerous and can explode if not handled charged/discahrged properly? These are a serious safety hazard - don't mess with them unless you know exactly what you are doing.

    I carefully took apart a Lithium-Ion laptop battery.
    I used pairs of two cells in series without the protection circuit and the batteries powered an electric radio-controlled airplane. The battery got hot and the motor stopped until the battery cooled then the airplane flew again until the battery voltage ran down too low. Luckily the batteries did not catch on fire.

    I charged each battery to 8.40V with current limiting and luckily the cells were pretty well balanced.
