Energizer Coin Lithium Battery Packaging ~ Prize Pack Giveaway

Posted by Jenna | Sunday, September 15, 2013

**The products for this review and giveaway were provided by Energizer. All opinions are my own.

We do our best to focus on ways to keep our kids safe around the home. Like many, we have locks on our cupboards, covers on the outlets, and gates on the stairs. But what about coin lithium batteries? They can be found around most homes in everyday items like remote controls, keyless entry devices, children's books with sound and more. However, a survey conduced by Energizer found that 62 percent of parents reported being unaware of the risk associated with coin lithium batteries.
To support National Childhood Injury Prevention Week this month, the National Safety Council and Energizer teamed up to share some important tips every parent should know to help prevent injuries from ingestion of Coin Lithium batters to help keep kids safe. I thought this was great, as it's something I think is good for us all to be reminded of.

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 develop packaging for its 20 millimeter coin lithium batteries that meets the Consumer Product Safety Commission's strict guidelines for child-resistant packaging. They have 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. 

If it's suspected that a child has swallowed a coin lithium battery, it is important to go to the ER 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
To show just how safe Energizer coin lithium battery packaging is, and how it helps prevent access by children (while remaining easy for an adult to open with scissors), Energizer gave us a challenge. They sent us a package, including a couple packages of Energizer, along with a sample of another battery package, so that we could try opening the packaging for ourselves and share about our experience.
We began with the competitors package. The backing is cheap and easily torn. In no time the batteries were out of the package. After seeing just how easy the package was to open, I have no doubt that a child would be able to. 

Then there's the Energizer package. This was made of a much higher quality plastic material and backing. Not matter how we twisted it, folded it and tried to tear it, it didn't work. This package is tough! It takes a scissors to open, and even with that, there's a safety seal around the battery, preventing it from just falling out. It takes a bit of cutting around the battery to get it out. I really appreciate this, as I know it would not be easy, or even possible for my kids to get these batteries out. YAY!

WIN IT: One lucky reader is going to win an Energizer prize package as well! It will include

  • Two packages of Energizer Coin Lithium Batteries
  • One Energizer LED Nightlight (winner's choice between Sleeping Beauty or Cars)
  • One Energizer Weatheready 2-in-1 LED Light

    very important to keep batteries out of reach of children

  11. BrunoDogg2 September 19, 2013 at 1:10 PM  

    I learned that there is battery packaging made for child resistance, such as Energizer's coin lithium battery packaging!

  12. ALee September 19, 2013 at 11:31 PM  

    I learned the packaging is child resistant. But I a must add for me it is also adult resistance, even with scissors.

  13. wigget September 20, 2013 at 9:52 AM  

    i learned there's a ssafety seal around the battery

  14. jakiesmom September 20, 2013 at 11:17 AM  

    I learned you need scissors to open their batteries

  15. Elizabeth R September 20, 2013 at 11:41 AM  

    Wow. This is going to sound weird, but I learned that the difficult to open packaging is to keep kids safe. I always just assumed it was Energizer's way of doing things. I did not know how important it was.

  16. Jennifer Rogers September 21, 2013 at 10:38 AM  

    I leraned that the packaging Energizer usus is to keep children safe! I always assumed it was just to aggravate me while trying to open it!LOL!

    I learned that other brands have packaging that is not child resistant.

  18. Jennifer T. September 24, 2013 at 12:03 AM  

    I learned about the 4 S's of coin lithium battery safety. It was a good reminder ot make sure the battery compartment doors are secure on devices containing them.

  19. Rebecca Parsons September 26, 2013 at 4:34 PM  

    The way to purchase batteries is ones that have child resistant packaging. Store batteries out of children's reach.

  20. Kimmie September 27, 2013 at 5:20 AM  

    I learned that the packaging is much safer than I thought it was!

    I learned that button batteries may also cause permanent injury when they are placed in the nose or the ears. tylerpants(at)gmail.com
