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.
Energizer led the industry by being the first to voluntarily develop packaging for its 20 millimeter coin lithium batteries that meets the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) strict guidelines for child-resistant packaging. They also developed a national awareness campaign in partnership with Safe Kids Worldwide called The Battery Controlled, which works to alert parents and caregivers to the dangers of swallowing coin lithium batteries. Identifying ways its products can help keep families safe is part of the Energizer commitment to designing its products with people in mind and investing in programs that have a positive impact on the world. that’s positivenergy™If it is suspected that a child has swallowed a coin lithium battery, it is important to go to the emergency department immediately.

I have to say I love the new packaging by Energizer and how much safer it is to have around children. I wish more companies would follow suit when it comes to products that can be dangerous to young children. I took scissors to both the Energizer and Rayovac packages and cut off one of the batteries. I was able to pretty easily tear the packaging around the Rayovac battery and get it out of the package. The Energizer battery on the other hand was securely sealed in the plastic packaging and even after cutting it away from the main package I was unable to get it out without using the scissors to cut right up around the circle area. I would have to say this was a little extra work, but well worth it knowing the battery was safe in it's packaging from little fingers.
