Battery Care and Maintenance

Important safety tips

  • Never dispose of any battery in fire, as they could explode.
  • Do not disassemble, crush, puncture, or otherwise damage any Uniross battery. This can result in leakage, rupture and or explosion.
  • Never recharge a battery unless it is specifically marked "rechargeable." Attempting to recharge a non-rechargeable (primary) battery could result in leakage or rupture.
  • Don't use rechargeable alkaline batteries in any Uniross Nickel Metal Hydride battery chargers.
Use and care tips

  • Use the correct size and type of battery specified by the manufacturer of your device.
  • Read the instructions on your device before installing batteries. Only use the size and type of battery specified in the instructions.
  • Keep battery contact surfaces and battery compartment contacts clean by rubbing them with a clean cloth each time you replace batteries.
  • Make sure that you insert batteries into your device properly, with the (+) and (-) terminals aligned correctly.
  • Remove all batteries from the device at the same time and replace them with new batteries of the same size and type to maximize performance.
  • Store batteries in a dry place at normal room temperature. Do not refrigerate Uniross Batteries. This will not make them last longer. Most Uniross Batteries will provide dependable long life even after 2 years of storage at normal room temperatures.
  • To help prolong the life of your Uniross Rechargeable Batteries, don’t leave them discharged or unused for extended periods of time.
  • Extreme temperatures reduce battery performance. Avoid storing Uniross Batteries in very warm places such as a car.
  • Never mix old and new batteries, and never mix different types or makes of batteries. For maximum performance, always use Uniross batteries of the same type and capacity.
