For a Christmas gift, I've been asked to make a battery drainer. The specifications I've been given is that it must drain either 6 or 8 AA batteries (As in, it needs to have the option to do either 6 or 8). I have some experience soldering things together, and some parts already.
So with that, what is the best way to quickly and safely drain 6-8 batteries? I suspect a bunch of LEDs or resistors would work, but for some reason the theory behind it to be certain eludes my mind at the moment (regrettably).
