Do’s and Dont’s
Caring For Your Torch
DO store your torch in a dry, cool location that’s convenient and easy to reach in an emergency or power outage.
DO replace the batteries in your torch or lantern every few month if it isn’t used for extended periods of time. This insures that it has fresh, working batteries and prevents battery leakage.
DO keep torches stored in multiple locations in your house and car – in a cabinet or drawer, near your bed, and in your glove compartment – in case of emergencies.
DO keep a fresh package of Energizer® batteries next to your torch. Families often find that batteries haven’t been replaced frequently or that children have removed the batteries to use in games. Keeping an unopened package of batteries where you store your torch gives you peace of mind that you’ll never be left in the dark
DON’T store your torch in high temperatures. This could accelerate defects in your torch, including possible battery leakage.
DON’T leave your torch under the seat in your car, or in direct sunlight.
