Frequently Asked Questions
Following Q&A will teach you everything you wanted to know about batteries and how to optimize the usage.
When measuring a battery with a tester, it indicates plus and minus reversely. Why?
Polarity reversal may happen when more than two batteries are connected in series and used until the last moment of discharge.
I swallowed a lithium coin battery. What do I do now?
Please seek medical attention immediately. While serious accidents are relatively uncommon, swallowing a coin battery may still cause burns or breathing difficulties.
Why are some batteries tight or difficult to put into the battery box?
Because there is a slight difference between manufacturers. Always use the previously used type of batteries which did fit in the compartment in case the batteries do not fit.
Can hearing aid batteries be recycled?
All batteries, including Panasonic hearing aid batteries, can and should be recycled.
Why does my appliance not work properly even though the batteries are charged?
Assuming your device isn’t faulty, causes may lie in either improper contact with the terminal or in the batteries themselves.
When should I change the batteries in my remote control?
Change the batteries as soon as the device starts malfunctioning. Remove the batteries if you plan on not using the device for a longer period of time.
Is it okay for my child to play with batteries?
No. However commonplace they may be, they’re still made up of chemicals that can potentially harm the environment (and the user) if they’re handled incorrectly.
How to minimize self-discharge?
Please store your batteries in dry conditions, and avoid high temperatures and direct sunlight.
How to dispose a battery?
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.
What should I do when I’ve swallowed a battery?
Immediately head to the nearest emergency room. Avoid drinking or eating before a doctor has provided a decent diagnosis.
