Like any electrical equipment, certain precautions must be taken in the handling and storage of the
1) Read the instructions of your equipment before installing the batteries.
2) Keep the batteries on clean surfaces.
3) Always replace all batteries at the same time. Mixing old and new batteries or different types (such as alkaline with zinc charcoal) will reduce overall operation and may cause chemical leaks or ruptures.
4) Remove worn batteries immediately from the equipment to prevent possible damage from chemical leaks.
5) Remove the batteries from the equipment when they are not considered to be used in a few months.
6) Never carry batteries in pockets or near metal objects, such as coins or metal clips. This will cause a short circuit in the battery and generate excessive heating. 7) Do not recharge alkaline batteries, or throw them into the fire, that could cause chemical ruptures or leaks.
8) Do not expose the batteries to water.
9) If the equipment is used or stored in extreme temperatures, always use alkaline batteries as their performance is much better than regular zinc carbon batteries under these conditions.
