Frequently Asked Questions

Following Q&A will teach you everything you wanted to know about batteries and how to optimize the usage.
Always insert batteries with the poles in the correct direction. Not doing so will lead to a short circuit.
Never use Ni-MH rechargeable batteries for waterproof appliances, appliances specifically designed for alkaline batteries, or in appliances with battery indicators.
Lithium batteries can give off a strong energy surge after a long period of low discharge, making them ideal for fire alarms.
Mixing batteries causes an imbalance in the energy flow. Some batteries will overcompensate this by discharging faster than usual - greatly reducing their lifespan.
A decreased operating time could indicate that your rechargeable batteries need replacing, depending on the circumstances.
Battery leakage is caused by forcefully discharging, short-circuiting, or the safety valve releasing excess gas from inside the cell.
Avoid contact with the substance at all times. Place the batteries into a plastic bag before recycling them. Clean out the battery holder with a dry cotton swab. In case of contact, wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.
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.
Batteries are classified according to IEC classification standards: LR03 is equal to AAA, but in another standard.
