I've looked inside my garage remote control and I've discovered a 12v 27a battery. The voltage is very low, but the ampere are many, can it damage a person when is fully charged? Thanks

    \$\begingroup\$ A 27 Ampere 12 volt alkaline battery would do the most damage if you dropped it on someone... \$\endgroup\$ – Majenko Oct 14 '14 at 13:56
  • \$\begingroup\$ No, it will not hurt anyone. \$\endgroup\$ – Russell McMahon Oct 14 '14 at 15:23

That's a 27A-size battery, not a battery capable of providing 27 amperes of current. The maximum current from that battery can best be described as "piddly", which is all a remote control needs.
