Electric Current in Battery If Not In Use

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I see a film series on Netflix called "Better Call Saul". There is a guy called Chuck (Charles). He is allergic to electricity so he can sense if there is electricity. His brother had a guy put a fully charged battery from his phone inside Chuck's pocket without him noticing it and he didn't sense the electricity. Therefore his brother though he was mentally ill. I wonder, is there a current if the battery is not in use? Should he even have sensed it or is his brother mistaken?

There's no complete circuit, thus no current.

Unconnected batteries do discharge very slowly; I think that's an internal reaction, but the current would be tiny.

No flow no current, but he could have sensed it's potential, as a good story-line...
