The mentalist displays several different makes of 1.5 volt batteries. Brands such as Eveready...Radio Shack, etc. Also shown is an energy saving battery holder complete with cap, bolt and padlock. A spectator is asked to select any one of the batteries while the mentalist's back is turned and to place the remaining batteries out of sight in his pocket. Placing the battery holder behind his back, the mentalist asks the spectator to drop the selected battery into the metal holder and to place the cap on same. Handing the holder to the spectator, the mentalist instructs him to insert the bolt and affix the padlock. While the spectator holds the locked container in his own hands, the mentalist states that he will attempt to identify the brand of battery locked in the holder through by means of the electrical impulses being generated by the battery. Sure enough, the mentalist correctly identifies the brand of the battery the spectator sealed in the container...even though it was done behind his back.
