Once you identify which devices take lithium coin batteries, keep them away from children. For devices that are powered by lithium coin batteries it’s a good idea to secure the battery compartments by tightening the screws or securing them with tape to help ensure the compartment does not accidentally open. Keep all new and used lithium coin batteries in a secure place, up high and out of a child’s reach.

True or False? It’s safe to throw away used or expired lithium coin batteries in your kitchen trash can or recycling bin.

Submit
Expired or used lithium coin batteries can still be dangerous and can cause harm in as little as two hours if ingested. It is best to wrap them up and throw them away either outside at a garbage collection or in a closed garbage can or recycling bin.

At child checkups, pediatricians often warn parents about the potential dangers children face from everyday objects throughout the home, like unlocked toilets, low-to-the-ground cabinets, unattended bath water, and accessible cleaning chemicals. Has your child’s pediatrician talked to you about battery safety in the home?

Submit
When visiting your pediatrician, be sure to ask them about lithium coin battery safety in the home. And, be sure to check every room in your house. Even in a bathroom, basement, or kitchen, there can be household devices that can contain lithium coin batteries. Always keep devices powered by lithium coin batteries stored up high and out of reach of children.

Do you ever let your kids play with your key fob, which may have a keychain or device finder attached?

Submit
While kids often love playing with keys, always store your keys, key chains and key fobs up and out of reach of children. Many key fobs and device finders are powered by lithium coin batteries, and some can be easily opened for battery replacement purposes.

What should you do if you suspect that your child has accidentally ingested a lithium coin battery?

Submit
If you answered ‘all of the above,’ you’re right, and quickly learning about battery safety! A lithium coin battery can get lodged in your child’s esophagus and burn through the surrounding tissue in as little as two hours, causing serious damage. If you suspect that your child has ingested a lithium coin battery, act fast. Take your child immediately to an emergency room. If you aren’t able to drive, call 911 for help.
