Not only the devices will consume the battery power continuously, the battery leakage will cause the energy waste, and more likely to cause the toxic mercury overflow exposed and damage to the circuit board .The thermometer is not the traditional battery. To start the ear thermometer, just insert the finger into the circle first and to spin it, hence the centrifugal force will generate electricity.
