Frequently Asked Questions

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

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 and consult a medical professional immediately.
Typically for an alkaline battery is a gradually decreasing voltage when it discharges, which means that for some appliances, which need a high base voltage to operate, the appliance stops working even while the battery has still a bit of energy left.
Mixed use or leaving the battery in the appliance can cause battery leakage.
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.
Batteries will become unfit to use after they’ve been in the water. Usually however, a battery won’t leak inside the washing machine thanks to the safety valve - so chances of your textile being affected are minimal.
Due to chemical reactions inside most batteries, the stored charge of the batteries is reduced little by little. This phenomenon is called self-discharge.
Battery leakage can be caused by various problems. Read on to learn more.
Batteries are classified according to IEC classification standards: LR03 is equal to AAA, but in another standard.
Make sure you measure the correct way: connect the poles to their corresponding measuring ends.
