Frequently Asked Questions

Following Q&A will teach you everything you wanted to know about batteries and how to optimize the usage.
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.
Use batteries for their right purpose: insert them correctly, replace them when empty and store them dry and at room temperature.
Don’t charge an alkaline or zinc-carbon battery, they are not designed to be charged.
Whereas some heat is normal, unusually hot batteries could be caused by over-discharging or short-circuiting. In such case, remove them from the device immediately.
Each battery has specific characteristics, depending on their chemical composition. Zinc carbon is a cheap battery for basic low-drain devices. Alkaline deliver good, dependable power (usable for any type of device, depending on the alkaline type). Lithium technology is a stable technology for smaller, yet demanding appliances. Zinc Air provide long-lasting, continual power.
When replacing a coin battery, make sure you do the following: insert it the correct way, with plus and minus poles touching the right terminals; use the right coin battery size; avoid dirt or any other substances obstructing proper contact; carefully insert the coin, not putting stress on it as you’re closing up the holder.
The results of a voltmeter vary depending on the type of voltmeter used. For a more accurate result, be sure to use a voltmeter with more than 1 megaohm input resistance for alkaline buttons batteries or a 10+ megaohm for lithium batteries.
Expiry date indicates how long the battery will function properly according to industry standards.
There are some best cases to keep stored batteries in best shape: store them in their original packaging, never mix up different batteries and store them at room temperature or in a cool environment.
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.
