Safety Information


Failure to read and follow these SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS could result in explosion, leakage, or other hazard, causing personal injury and/or property damage.

Alkaline cells are PRIMARY batteries and are NOT DESIGNED to be recharged. Attempts to recharge these batteries can lead to leakage and possibly an explosion. No responsibility is accepted by Better Battery Company (BBCo.) and its affiliates for injury or damage resulting from the cells having been recharged or otherwise abused.

Ensure that anyone who uses this battery reads these warnings:

+ Keep out of reach of children. In case of ingestion of a battery, the person involved should seek medical assistance immediately.

+ Do not short-circuit batteries. When the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals of a battery are in electrical contact with each other, the battery becomes short-circuited. This may result in venting, leakage, explosion and personal injury.

+ Do not charge batteries. Attempting to charge a non-rechargeable (PRIMARY) battery may cause internal gas and/or heat generation resulting in venting, leakage, explosion and personal injury.

+ Do not heat, dismantle or deform batteries. When a battery is heated, dismantled or deformed, leakage and an explosion may occur and cause personal injury.

+ Do not dispose of batteries in fire. When batteries are disposed of in fire, the heat build-up may case an explosion and personal injury.

+ Always insert batteries correctly with regards to the polarities (+ and -) marked on the battery and the equipment.

+ Do not mix old and new batteries or batteries of different types or brands. When replacing batteries, replace all of them at the same time with new batteries of the same brand and type.

+ Exhausted batteries should be immediately removed from equipment and properly disposed of to be recycled.

+ Do not weld and solder directly on batteries. The heat from welding or soldering directly to a battery may cause internal short-circuit resulting in venting, leakage, and explosion and may cause personal injury.

+ Do not allow children to replace batteries without adult supervision.

+ Do not encapsulate and/or modify batteries. Encapsulation, or any other modification to a battery, may result in blockage of the safety vent mechanism(s) and subsequent explosion and personal injury.

+ Store used batteries in the original packaging and away from metal objects. If already unpacked, do not mix or jumble batteries.

+ Remove batteries from equipment if it is not to be used for an extended period unless it is for emergency use.
