Battery safety

Battery safety


When not properly stored or charged, batteries can become a fire hazard. Follow these tips to be safe with your batteries.


The cooler, the better


Never expose a battery to heat or direct sunlight.


Dispose of them the right way


Don’t keep expired or non-working batteries in your home. Call 3-1-1 to find out how to properly dispose of old batteries.


Don't forget to pull the plug


Always unplug a charger once the battery has recharged. Leaving a charger plugged in longer than required reduces battery life and increases the risk of fire.
