The 4 S’s of Coin Lithium Battery Safety & Giveaway

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


Today I am going to share some info that can really save a life...a very important life - the life of a child! And it might be something you don't think about often which is why I want to share!!!

How often do you think about the coin lithium batteries around your house? If "not often" is the answer, let me tell you why you SHOULD BE!

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.


In support of National Childhood Injury Prevention Week (September 1-7, 2013), the National Safety Council and Energizer have teamed up to share some important tips every parent should know to help prevent injuries from the ingestion of Coin Lithium batteries to help keep kids safe.

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 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. For more information on child safety and coin lithium battery safety, please visit nsc.org, www.energizer.com, TheBatteryControlled.com and www.poison.org/battery.

I received several packages of Energizer Coin Lithium batteries and I got to experience first hand how safely they are packaged but yet easy enough for an adult to open with a scissors! I feel much safer having these package around the house knowing my children can not open them!
