Frequently Asked Questions

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

The main difference between a zinc battery and an alkaline battery is the type of electrolyte used in both batteries. Because of the composition, an alkaline battery delivers more energy than a zinc battery. Both batteries should thus be used in different appliances.

There is the possibility that the measurement was executed wrongly. Please make sure that the plus pole and the minus pole are measured with the corresponding measuring ends of the voltmeter. If they are switched, there will be a negative voltage. If the poles of your voltmeter are correctly connected, there is a possibility that the battery suffered a phenomenon called “polarity reversal”. This is a rare phenomenon that can happen at the end of a discharge with 2 or more batteries in series.
This should be avoided at any time. When the battery has been in a washing machine, it is no longer fit to use. Please dispose of this battery.
0006P is a 9V (square) battery and is also designated as a 6F22 (Zinc carbon) or 6LR61 (Alkaline) battery.
When it comes to frequently used remotes or appliances, the batteries are quite fast changed after the appliance or remote stopped working, because it is easy noticeable. However if the appliance or remote is not that often used, there is a risk of over discharge and leakage in that appliance. 
Don’t charge an alkaline or zinc-carbon battery, they are not designed to be charged.
There are several possibilities why a battery can feel hot or heat up: when the battery is short circuited (in a purse or in a drawer), when the battery got a severe shock (has fallen down) or when a battery is wrongly inserted in the battery box.
To properly dispose the battery please consult and follow the rules of your local government.
