Thanks Darcy! The thing that I'm trying to figure out is if I hook a 9 volt
up to one of my sugar cells that is infused with wintergreen oil (Methyl
Salicylate) if the internal temperature will heat to more than 101 Celsius,
which is the flash point for the chemical and could make it combust. As
long as the battery doesn't heat it up to more than that it should be fine.
Unfortunately I threw away the old sugar cells as they were all melty.
