Frequently Asked Questions

Following Q&A will teach you everything you wanted to know about batteries and how to optimize the usage.
Lithium batteries can give off a strong energy surge after a long period of low discharge, making them ideal for fire alarms.
If service time has reduced to half of its initial capacity or if charging time never seems to complete, it’s probably time to replace the battery.
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.
The capacity of batteries is indicated as XXXX mAh (milliampere/hour). If you insert this battery into an appliance which consumes 100 milliampere current continuously, the operating time of the appliance will be around 20 hours mathematically.
Batteries are classified according to IEC classification standards: LR03 is equal to AAA, but in another standard.
Battery leakage is caused by forcefully discharging, short-circuiting, or the safety valve releasing excess gas from inside the cell.
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.
Always insert batteries with the poles in the correct direction. Not doing so will lead to a short circuit.
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. If you start using it within that period, the battery will operate normally and maintain the specified performance.
Zinc carbon batteries are more commonly used in low-drain devices, whereas the Panasonic alkaline range spans the entire appliance spectrum: from low- to high-drain.
