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.
