Leading the industry in coin lithium safety
Energizer is committed to mitigating or eliminating injuries due to coin lithium battery ingestion through:
We’ve led research investigating what causes the chemical reaction when coin lithium batteries are swallowed. We will continue to collaborate with health and safety professionals and others in the industry to share these findings in search of a solution.
We’re actively participating in voluntary standards development for batteries and battery-containing devices to standardize warning language and device design to make it harder for children to access battery compartments.
Energizer was the first in North America to introduce coin lithium battery packaging compliant with child resistant packaging standards and recommendations made by the staff at the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
For all devices that carry an Energizer brand name and use coin lithium batteries, Energizer requires that the battery compartment include child safety features – regardless of whether the device is intended for use by children. Our requirements follow the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) toy standard and the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) voluntary standards for all other devices.
In 2011, we launched the first industry-led effort to raise awareness of the coin lithium battery issue among parents and caregivers through a partnership with Safe Kids Worldwide, the National Capital Poison Center and other health and safety organizations.
