This battery is pumped up

This battery is psyched up and ready for action. Most batteries don’t care about charging your various small electronics, but this one simply can’t wait. Even if it’s just some lame Tomagatchi toy that never stops beeping.

The unfortunate irony of this enthusiasm is that, by being pumped up, our friend here no longer fits inside most electronics. This illustration, then, captures a devoted battery mere moments before its lifelong dream is forever crushed. That’s pretty heavy stuff for a drawing of a stupid battery.
