Lithium Coin Battery Safety

As lithium coin battery ingestion by babies or toddlers is a serious topic, it is important to learn about the possible dangers to children posed by lithium coin batteries. Ingestion may lead to serious injury or death, so steps should be taken to prevent children from accidentaly ingesting lithium coin batteries

Warning! Keep batteries away from children!

Always keep your lithium coin batteries away from children to prevent swallowing. If ingestion does occur, however, be aware that initial symptoms may be similar to other childhood illnesses such as coughing, drooling and discomfort.

Be aware of common devices that use lithium coin batteries

Lithium coin batteries are commonly used in garage door openers, medical devices, watches, remote controls and greeting cards with sound. Do not leave these devices readily available and make sure children are supervised when in contact with them so that access to lithium coin batteries can be prevented.

Naturally inquisitive, kids sometimes find lithium coin batteries in devices and storage drawers. Be mindful of these places and take steps to childproof them. You can secure battery compartments in devices by sealing them with tools or tape, and limit the possibility of accidental ingestion by always storing your lithium coin batteries out of reach of children. Practicing these tips will increase your children’s safety.

Practice these safety tips:

  • Secure battery compartments with tools or tape
    • Sealing devices with tape or tools will decrease the possibility of children gaining access to lithium coin batteries.
  • Store lithium coin batteries out of reach of children
    • A cupboard, drawer or locker inaccessible to your children is the best place to store your lithium coin batteries.
