Energizer Coin Lithium Childhood Safety and Giveaway

When I took a Grandparents Class a few weeks ago, the main topic was safety. And when it’s comes to my new grandson, I want to protect him from any type of danger (and love him to pieces too!). Energizer is sharing information about safety during National Childhood Injury Prevention Week with its coin lithium battery child resistant packaging. I was given a gift pack from Energizer to try out their child resistant packaging.

Energizer Lithium Batteries

I didn’t known much about the danger of coin lithium batteries, but after looking through Energizer site, I understand how important keeping these type of batteries away from young children. Energizer is committed to keeping kids safe with their voluntarily developed child resistant packaging. They are bring awareness to this issue by partnering with The Battery Controlled.

Don’t you love when big brands take corporate social responsibility? I do and lean towards buying their products.

The Safety Issue

According to Energizer, “If ingested, these coin-sized lithium batteries can cause serious chemical burns in as little as two hours.” They can also get stuck and cause choking. These type of batteries are used for lots of items in her home: remote controls, keyless entry devices for your car, flameless candles, sound-enabled books and a variety of health and fitness devices.

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

Energizer Child Resistant Packaging

In order to open Energizer coin lithium battery packages (20 millimeter batteries) it takes a pair of scissors. It actually took me a short while to open, but that can be because I’m like a child! It was hard, but it should be. And on the batteries themselves, there are stickers instructing you about the danger of this type of battery.

  15. STORE them SECURE… just like you do your meds… UP and locked and out of reach of small kids.

  16. I always store any batteries in a storage container up & away from the kids! When batteries are needed, they go straight in to the devices and I always make sure the battery compartments are properly closed/sealed and the used batteries are disposed of properly. Proper disposal is also of big importance when it comes to battery safety with children.

    I also love that Energizer has such great Child Resistant packaging!
