All the time. The number of battery-powered toys is … infinite? DUPLO trains; Super Mario LEGO; remote-controlled cars; dolls that cry, laugh, and burp; an ice cream cart that talks. Also, smoke alarms, and door chimes (and the latter take only disposable/alkaline batteries because rechargeables have that slightly lower voltage).

[W]hen was the last time you replaced a cylindrical battery out of anything, save for the odd remote control?
