Safety instructions

Batteries power everything from your digital camera to the smoke alarm or your children’s toys. Observe the basic rules and they will give you no trouble beyond installation, treat them properly and you will be rewarded with reliable energy that lasts!

These are some of the basic information you need to know before you start:


  • read the instructions of your device before installing the batteries. Use only the size and type of batteries specified in the instructions.
  • insert the batteries correctly. Observe the symbols that indicate the correct mounting of the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals of the battery.
  • keep clean the surfaces of the battery contacts by rubbing them gently with a clean cloth or eraser.
  • immediately remove the exhausted batteries from the device and dispose of properly.
  • remove all batteries from the device at once and replace them with new batteries of the same size and type
  • preserve battery life by turning off the device and removing the batteries when not in use and do not expect to use it for a long period.
  • Observe proper storage of batteries by keeping the batteries in a cool dry place at normal room temperature. It is not necessary to store batteries in the refrigerator.


  • Keep the batteries out of the reach of children. If swallowed, the batteries can get stuck in the esophagus, which can cause serious injury or death in just a couple of hours.
  • DO NOT dispose of batteries in a fire as it may result in leakage or explosion.
  • DO NOT disassemble, crush, puncture, or in any way damage the batteries. This can lead to leakage or explosion.
  • Do not carry free batteries in a pocket or purse with metal objects like coins, paper clips, etc. This may cause a short circuit of the battery and lead to high heat, leakage or explosion.
  • DO NOT recharge a battery unless it is labeled as "rechargeable." Attempting to recharge a non-rechargeable (primary) battery could result in leakage or explosion.
  • Do not store batteries or devices powered by batteries in hot places - increased temperatures can lead to loss of capacity, leakage or explosion.
  • DO NOT mix old and new batteries together. Do not use different brands or types of batteries. This can cause leakage or explosion, resulting in personal injury or property damage.
  • Do not give batteries to young children.
