Cotton Swabs Dipped in Alcohol Make Laptop and Cell Phone Batteries Last Longer

Geek Tip: Use Q-Tips to Make Your Battery Last Longer

From the office of Yes, Really comes this tip for maintaining maximum cell phone and laptop battery life: Real Simple advises you to swipe a cotton swab dipped in alcohol across the battery contacts (make sure it's not dripping with alcohol, I assume).

They say this helps "maintain good battery connections and sustain the charge for a longer time."

Well, hot damn. Anyone ever heard of this? I may have to try it!
