Coin lithium batteries can be found around most homes in everyday items like remote controls, keyless entry devices for your car, flameless candles and children’s books with sound. If ingested, these coin-sized lithium batteries can cause serious chemical burns in as little as two hours. Yet in a survey conducted by Energizer, 62 percent of parents reported being unaware of the risk associated with coin lithium batteries.
National Safety Council and Energizer have teamed up to share some important tips every parent should know to help prevent injuries from the ingestion of Coin Lithium batteries to help keep kids safe.
The 4 S’s of Coin Lithium Battery Safety
· Store devices that use coin lithium batteries out of reach of children
· Secure the battery compartments of devices
· Select battery packaging that meets federal guidelines for child resistance, such as Energizer’s coin lithium battery packaging
· Share this information with your friends and family
I took the challenge and I tried to get into both packages of coin lithium batteries. I was able to get the batteries out of the Rayovac pack within 30 seconds tops. The Energizer pack I was not able to open no matter how hard I tried. After about 2 minutes I finally gave up and grabbed a pair of scissors to open the pack. I am pleased to know that Energizer has thought about childrens safety and change the packaging of the coin lithiun batteries. My family uses these type of batteries for a few items and doing this challenge has opened our eyes.
