One way to stay charged and ready is to make sure you follow the proper diet. Carbs, protein, healthy fats. All are vital. But if you don’t have the desire or time to worry about that stuff, you can always just eat a bunch of batteries.

Actually, it doesn’t appear that one Irish woman was looking to revive herself after swallowing a bunch of AA and AAA batteries.

How much is a bunch? Try 55. Yes, she swallowed FIFTY-FIVE batteries.

Woman Swallows 55 Batteries


Fortunately, doctors were able to remove the batteries after reporting that this was the highest reported number of “batteries ingested at a single point in time.”

Well, let’s hope so.

Anyway, doctors found the batteries via X-ray, and following a week of observation, surgically removed the batteries from her abdomen.

“They found that the stomach, pulled down by the weight of the batteries, had become distended and stretched into the area above the pubic bone,” WION News reported.

“The deliberate ingestion of multiple large AA batteries as a form of deliberate self-harm is an unusual presentation,” doctors reported. “The potential of cylindrical batteries to result in acute surgical emergencies should not be underestimated.”

Interestingly, people who swallow batteries by accident may not even notice much of a difference. A small battery can typically pass through your body without causing much damage, surprisingly enough. But 55 batteries? Yeah, that’s something else.

Moral of the story: If you’re determined to stay charged, there are much better ways to go about it. People do so many weird things in this world, it scares me. Like…who wakes up one day and just decided to indulge in batteries? And not only one, but 55 freaking batteries? Like, what do you think will happen? Get superpowers out of nowhere? Yeah, that’s a no from us.
