Default Hot Batteries in TV Remote

My son noticed that the battery area of our TV remote was quite hot. I
immediately removed the batteries, both were almost too hot to hold

What caused the batteries to get hot?

Dunno, probably an internal short from leaking somewhere, or perhaps
some object was sitting on the remote a long time?. Looks like you may
have cleared it now.

Anyway - please make sure that the batteries you are using in this are
NOT of the rechargeable type. If they are, that would explain the high
temperatures and deformed terminal.
