Quick Battery FAQs
Can I store D Batteries in my device?
It is not recommended. D Batteries should not be kept in a device that is not in use for long periods of time. If you are planning on not using a device for an extended period, remove the batteries. Store the batteries in a dry, room temperature place, away from extreme heat or cold.
Can I mix different battery types in my device?
No. You run the risk of battery leakage if you mix different battery types in a single device like alkaline, lithium, heavy duty, rechargeable or something else. Use only one battery type.
Same goes with mixing old and new batteries. Replace all of the batteries in the device at the same time.
Should I recycle my dead alkaline batteries?
Yes. Alkaline D Batteries are recycled in the metals industry and to recover steel, zinc, ferromanganese, and other materials. This also includes other types of batteries. Please visit our Battery Recycling page for more information on where to drop off your dead batteries or where you can mail them in.
