Frequently Asked Questions

Following Q&A will teach you everything you wanted to know about batteries and how to optimize the usage.
Batteries are classified according to IEC classification standards: LR03 is equal to AAA, but in another standard.
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.
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.
Make sure you measure the correct way: connect the poles to their corresponding measuring ends.
This is a vibration noise which occurs when electric current flows through a transformer or a winding wire inside a component part. However, the charger may still be used without any concern as there is no need to worry from a safety point of view.
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.
In appliances without a charging function, yes. In appliances that do have a charging function, be sure to check whether the function was specifically designed for Ni-MH. If not, it’s best not to use Ni-MH batteries.
At this point Panasonic does not produce AAAA or LR61 batteries.
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.
As new energy flows into your battery, some heat is perfectly fine. If you notice the battery or charger becomes too hot to touch, cease the charging process immediately.
