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.
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 are classified according to IEC classification standards: LR03 is equal to AAA, but in another standard.
Due to chemical reactions inside most batteries, the stored charge of the batteries is reduced little by little. This phenomenon is called self-discharge.
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.
Don’t charge an alkaline or zinc-carbon battery, they are not designed to be charged.
No. However commonplace they may be, they’re still made up of chemicals that can potentially harm the environment (and the user) if they’re handled incorrectly.
The ideal temperature for our primary batteries is between 5°C up to 45°C. 
0006P is a 9V (square) battery and is also designated as a 6F22 (Zinc carbon) or 6LR61 (Alkaline) battery.
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.
