Frequently Asked Questions

Following Q&A will teach you everything you wanted to know about batteries and how to optimize the usage.

Battery leakage can be caused by various problems. Read on to learn more.
Always insert batteries with the poles in the correct direction. Not doing so will lead to a short circuit.
Don’t charge an alkaline or zinc-carbon battery, they are not designed to be charged.
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.
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.
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.
They do. We guarantuee performance for up to three years after production. After this we cannot guarantee the battery will perform as well as it’s supposed to.
Due to chemical reactions inside most batteries, the stored charge of the batteries is reduced little by little. This phenomenon is called self-discharge.
Never apply heat to batteries. Keep them away from any heat sources like heaters, candles, stoves and fires. Exposing them to too much heat could cause them to tear, leak or even explode.
Please store your batteries in dry conditions, and avoid high temperatures and direct sunlight.
