Battery Care

We want our customers to get the most out of our batteries, as we are proud of the long lasting potential we create. We’ve put together a few tips on how to get the best performance from your Rayovac batteries.

  1. Battery handling safety recommendations:
    • Please store all small batteries out of sight and reach of young children.
    • Ensure the battery compartment of any household product is securely closed and child-resistant and/or the product is stored out of the reach of young children.
    • Avoid storing small batteries in pillboxes or setting them out with medications since their shape and size make them easily mistaken for medication.
    • When changing a battery, never hold batteries in the mouth.
    • Seek immediate medical attention if a battery is ingested or inserted
  2. Fire – Never dispose of batteries in a fire. They may rupture, releasing internal ingredients.
