Is it a problem to mix batteries of different chemistries, brands or ages?
Mixing battery chemistries or ages in a device is not recommended. This practice can significantly increase the possibility for leakage and reduce the performance of the device. It is best to replace all of the batteries in the device with new batteries of the same chemistry and age. If you are ever unsure what type of battery your device requires, refer to your devices user manual.
