I bought some AA Fujicells for my controllers and discovered an unususal design flaw with them. The positive contact or "button" does not extend far enough to make contact in my controller or my charger. The shoulder of the battery on the positive end hits first preventing contact with the button.

I trimmed off the clear heat shrink on the batteries positive end shoulder and it was enough to allow the positive button to make contact in my battery charger but they still would not work in my controller. I ended up bending the controller positive contact out to meet the battery button. It works but I am not happy about it.

We are talking about a few thousandths here. I wonder if a spot of solder on the battery button would work. Anyone ever have a similar experience?
