Frequently Asked Questions

Following Q&A will teach you everything you wanted to know about batteries and how to optimize the usage.
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.
Always remove batteries from devices you don’t use for longer periods, from devices connected to AC power and when batteries are empty.
Panasonic strongly advocates not attempting to charge primary batteries such as alkaline, zinc carbon, or lithium, using Ni-MH chargers. Alkaline batteries are not designed for recharging, and doing so could cause leakage and in the worst case lead to the batteries exploding.
Battery lifespan greatly depends on the device and on the conditions.
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.
Perhaps you are using a different battery type. Zinc carbon will perform otherwise compared to alkaline, for example.
Coin batteries have a low voltage (1.5 V) and a diameter less than 12 mm to prevent any serious accident. Also, packaging has been designed specifically to prevent accidental ingestion. Panasonic coin batteries are thus relatively safe and serious accidents are very uncommon.
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.
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.
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.
