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
Global Consumer Batteries Market to Reach $55.4 Billion by 2017

Global Consumer Batteries Market to Reach $55.4 Billion by 2017

The global market for Consumer Batteries is forecast to reach $55.4 billion by the year 2017. Rising popularity of portable electronic devices; growing adoption of rechargeable batteries; increase in consumer income levels, specifically in emerging markets; ever-increasing end-use device markets; and growing popularity of Lithium polymer batteries in applications such as mobile phones; are the key factors driving growth in the global consumer batteries market. The global battery market is forecast to exhibit steady growth through 2017. Global economic growth in future would encourage the global demand for primary and secondary consumer batteries. Additionally, the increase in consumer incomes would also drive the demand for high-performance batteries and battery-enabled consumer devices. Growing popularity of portable electronic devices, such as camera phones, digital cameras, and portable computing devices, is fueling the demand for consumer batteries, especially in the Asian region. China is expected to emerge as the single largest and fastest growing market for consumer batteries, recording gains led by strong economic growth, increasing per capita income, continued industrialization efforts, and solid demand for battery-enabled consumer electronic products. The same factors are expected to drive the demand for consumer batteries in other developing regions, including India, where growth is expected to be particularly robust, and also in South Korea, Indonesia, Iran, Poland, and Argentina, where growth is likely to exceed the global averages. The US, Europe, and Japan are relatively mature markets, and are forecast to grow moderately through 2017. Though mature, these markets would continue to be of major interest to battery manufacturers, as they together would account for a lion’s share of the global consumer batteries market by... read more
