EPBA: Consumer Battery Selection Guide

EPBA: Consumer Battery Selection Guide

This guide aims to assist consumers in selecting batteries for intended applications. The recommended battery chemistry is based on: The expected power demand of the appliance The intensity with which the appliance is used The guide has been developed using the most recent information available. We recommend however that the device manufacturer’s instructions should always be followed.   Source: EPBA (The European Portable Battery Association) http://www.bbma.co.uk/pdf/5505_EPBA_BatterySelectionGuide_11613.pdf... read more

Tips for Safe Use of Consumer Batteries

Tips for Safe Use of Consumer Batteries

Observe the following precautions to ensure safety. Charging Do not charge batteries (except rechargeable batteries). Do not attempt to charge primary batteries, because they are not designed for charging. If attempt is made to charge them, gases generated within the battery can cause heat generation, leaking, rupturing or fire. Mounting Insert a battery with the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals oriented correctly. If a battery is inserted with reversed terminals, the battery is shorted depending on the equipment, may possibly cause heat generation, leaking, rupturing or fire. Mixed Use Do not mix used and new batteries, and do not mix different types of batteries together. Your equipment may not operate properly if batteries of different voltages and types are used together. In addition, the battery exhausted first may be excessively drained (over-discharged) due to different discharge characteristics, which may eventually result in swelling or rupturing of the battery. When used, new and/or partially used batteries are used together, the most used battery will be excessively discharged, preventing normal operation of the other batteries. This is not only uneconomic but also may cause the battery to swell or rupture. Replace all batteries with new batteries at the same time. Forcible Discharge Do not forcibly discharge. If a battery is forcibly discharged, the voltage may drop below zero (reversed polarity), generating gases inside the battery, which may cause swelling or rupturing of the battery. Shorting Do not short-circuit the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals. If the positive and negative terminals come into contact with each other or are shorted with wire or other metallic objects, a instantaneous high current will flow, possibly damaging the... read more
