Battery Safety

We don't want to sound like your parents, but safety is important especially when it comes to Batteries. Here are some tips to keep your batteries safe and secure, and get the best life out of them.

Do: When not in use keep them in a hard battery case designed to hold batteries
Don't: Leave batteries loose in a bag, pocket, suitcase, car console or other vessel. If they hit something metal like car keys they will go off.
Do: Store them in a cool, dark space when not in use
Don't: Leave them in direct sunlight

Do: Label them and use them in matched pairs when using in a device designed for 2 or more batteries
Don't: Use them in mismatched pairs, as this will shorten the lifespan of your batteries

Do: Buy a high discharge, reliable brand such as Samsung, LG, Sony.

Don't: Cheap out. If the batteries are too low a discharge they won't work or can damage your device, or worse.
