Our parent testers were excited for the on-cell bitter coating innovation to hit the market to help families avoid the potential for accidental ingestions. Because of the added safety feature on Duracell’s new Lithium Coin batteries, we’re proud to announce these products as a 2020 Parent Tested Parent Approved award recipient.
Lithium coin batteries can be a hazard for small children. If swallowed, a lithium coin battery can get lodged in a child's esophagus and cause serious harm in as little as two hours.Learn More
Duracell is embarking on the Power Safely campaign to help prevent accidental ingestions and bring awareness to the hidden danger of lithium coin batteries.
Marisa Soto and her family have teamed up with Duracell, to bravely tell their heart-wrenching story and to introduce Duracell’s new child safety campaign – Power Safely.
As a mother of three, having the knowledge of how to properly feed one of my children through a G-Tube was unimaginable, but it became my reality without any warning.
Duracell takes child safety very seriously and is continuously working to update precautions and safety standards to help keep children safe. As the #1 trusted battery brand, Duracell provides more safety features than other leading brands.
The latest safety innovation added to our lithium coin batteries (2032, 2025, and 2016 sizes) is a non-toxic bitter coating on the cell that is designed to help discourage swallowing.
We make our packaging difficult to open for a reason. The double blister design requires scissors—and determination—to remove the battery.
Every lithium coin battery package is clearly marked with a safety warning.
The positive side of the battery offers an additional safety warning.
There are simple things you can do to help prevent your child from coming in to contact with a lithium coin battery.
Lithium coin batteries are commonly used in devices all over your home:
Keep these devices out of reach and out of sight. Supervise your children if they come into contact with them.
Kids are curious. Even if you keep your devices away from your children, they might find them and get access to the batteries. A piece of duct tape or other tools can help secure battery compartments.
If you’ve got spare batteries, be sure to keep them secured and away from your children in a drawer, cupboard, or any other space that can be locked.
You can help at home by safely securing the devices below.
