RAYOVAC® NiMH Rechargeable batteries are reusable and renewable, making them a smart choice for the environmentally conscious consumer since they can be reused hundreds of times.
Tips and Tricks:
Never mix battery types (Alkaline, NiMH, Zinc Carbon)
When the lower-performance batteries are exhausted, the longer-lasting batteries will force discharge current through them, which can cause corrosion and hydrogen gas formation. No fun!
Keep batteries out of reach of children
Know which devices contain specialty batteries, and don’t change batteries in front of children.
Promptly remove dead or weak batteries from devices
By removing dead or weak batteries promptly, you will help protect your devices!
Never Mix Old & New batteries in devices
Mixing batteries can cause them to explode, damage your device or cause a fire.
Do not leave battery powered devices switched “on” after the batteries are exhausted
This can cause erosion in your device.
Store batteries in a cool and dry place
Extreme heat or even cold can shorten the longevity of the battery. Never refrigerate.
Remove batteries from any device that will be stored
Many devices don’t turn off completely when not in use, so they still use a small amount of power. If a device is stored this way for an extended period of time, like months or years, the batteries can run out and corrode. Not what you want when you dig that old toy out of the closet!
Do not carry batteries loose in purses or pockets
Doing so can cause burns, or cause batteries to explode.
