Frequently Asked Questions

Following Q&A will teach you everything you wanted to know about batteries and how to optimize the usage.

Please store your batteries in dry conditions, and avoid high temperatures and direct sunlight.
Due to chemical reactions inside most batteries, the stored charge of the batteries is reduced little by little. This phenomenon is called self-discharge.
A hot battery could have several causes: from wrong storage to short circuiting. Some warmth is okay but keep an eye out for unusual heat.
In case of skin contact there is a chance of chemical burns. Use clear tepid water for at least 15 minutes on exposed skin. Consult a physician in case of irritation, injury or pain. In case of contact with the eye, do not rub the eyes, but flush with clear tepid water for at least 30 minutes.
Batteries are classified according to IEC classification standards: LR03 is equal to AAA, but in another standard.
A battery is a chemical product which produces electricity by chemical reactions at its inside. These reactions and its inside materials do deteriorate over time.
Turn off the device and remove the battery immediately. Remove the remaining leakage using a cotton swab. Avoid skin contact at all times.
Do not throw batteries in the trash. You can recycle every battery type you use - even unusable rechargeable batteries. Recycling points and regulations are different in every country.
Don’t charge an alkaline or zinc-carbon battery, they are not designed to be charged.
No. Do not use batteries in water or in vacuum conditions - this will cause them to rust and short-circuit.
