Re: Battery drain. What's wrong with this picture?

I was waiting for someone to ask "what's wrong with the pic" as I asked.
Notice that it is chrome plated plastic. Chrome is conductive so how the hell do the metal clips attach without making the entire thing a short?
I had to use a dremel and some carbide bits/sanding rolls and needle files to grind the chrome off around the area where the socket clips attach.
Stupid oversight that is very time consuming.
