    I have opened an ordinary battery to get the carbon rod and the black
    powdery stuff around it stained my drawer. I had some nicads in there
    and I was wondering if the nicads would be affected?

    Some of the Nicads did have some white stuff on the positive
    terminals, but this could be down to old age or misuse.

    Should I be concerned?

    I have got rid of the black stuff- got rid of the drawer. I would calll
    it a light stain.

    I would wash my hands after touching anything that came out of the inside of
    a NiCd. Eating cadmium has been linked to a higher risk of some cancers I
    believe.
