Energizer Coin Lithium Battery Child Safe Package Review & Giveaway CLOSED

In support of National Childhood Injury Prevention Week (September 1-7, 2013), the National Safety Council and Energizer sent me a review package of their Coin Lithium batteries, which included tips parents should know about how to help prevent injuries from a child opening coin batteries packages and ingesting them.

You might think that your child is safe and there's no chance they'd have access to coin batteries. It's sad to say you'd be wrong. Coin lithium batteries can be found in everyday items like remote controls, keyless entry devices for your car, and children’s books with sound. There's a good chance you have coin lithium batteries in your home and your child might have access to them. This can be very dangerous.

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.

To help raise awareness about the serious risk of a child getting into a package of coin lithium batteries, I took a package test challenge. My task was to open a Energizer coin lithium batteries package and a competitors coin lithium batteries package. I was surprised at the results. You can see my test in the video below



As you can see the competitor package was easy to open, while the Energizer's coin lithium batteries package wasn't, without the use of a scissors. Having a battery package that's hard for a child to open is just one of the ways parents can keep children safe. Here are a few other ways:

Energizer The 4 S of Coin Lithium Battery Safety

Did you know that 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.
