Frequently Asked Questions

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

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.
Lithium batteries can give off a strong energy surge after a long period of low discharge, making them ideal for fire alarms.
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.
Never mix batteries. Mixing batteries causes an imbalance in the energy flow. Some batteries will overcompensate this by discharging faster than usual - greatly reducing their lifespan.
Panasonic does not produce or sell 12V batteries like A27, 27A, G27A, MN27 or bi09 of other manufacturers.
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.
Immediately head to the nearest emergency room. Avoid drinking or eating before a doctor has provided a decent diagnosis.
Please store your batteries in dry conditions, and avoid high temperatures and direct sunlight.
In general it’s best to never let your batteries deplete completely. Try to recharge them before the energy level drops below 30%.
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.
