True. Energizer (tm) batteries are supposed to have enhanced anti-leak
protection. This appears to be accurate. I recently replaced some that were
in a cheapo digital camera I keep in my car for accidents. They had been
full, but had not leaked fluid at all even though completely dead after a
few years of current microdrainage. Like most devices, the 'off' setting
(move a slide to cover the lens) apparently just puts it into a low-power
standby mode. They had endured a few winters (min -30C) and summers (max
+50C? interior) as well.

Despite that, I plan to leave them loose in the case in the future.

I just put a piece of paper between one battery and it's contact.
