Frequently Asked Questions

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

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.
0006P is a 9V (square) battery and is also designated as a 6F22 (Zinc carbon) or 6LR61 (Alkaline) battery.
While most batteries will still work in extreme temperatures (albeit with shorter lifespans), Panasonic EVOLTA NEO is your best choice for extreme cold or warm weather.
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.
There can be several reasons why the appliance doesn't work. The battery can be wrongly inserted in the battery compartment, there can be a bad connection between the battery and the compartment connection terminal or it is possible the appliance does not work properly.
Typically for an alkaline battery is a gradually decreasing voltage when it discharges, which means that for some appliances, which need a high base voltage to operate, the appliance stops working even while the battery has still a bit of energy left.
Zinc air battery are different from other batteries. They do not contain active materials in their positive electrode. This type of battery reacts with air - so it’s important to remove the tag before inserting the battery into your device. They provide a current of 1.4V if used correctly.
At this point Panasonic does not produce AAAA or LR61 batteries.
Panasonic hearing aid batteries, or zinc air batteries, react with air. As soon as you pull off the seal, the battery will be able to release energy. Be sure to let the battery breathe for a few minutes before inserting it into your device.
Do not throw batteries in the trash. You can recycle every battery type you use - even unusable rechargeable batteries. Recycling points and regulations are different in every country.
