Batteries – An Unexpected Hazard, provides battery safety tips which point out ways people may unknowingly subject a battery to abuse or conditions for which it was never designed. These include incorrect storage and charging, which can result in uncontrolled and dangerous failure of the battery such as explosion, fire, and the emission of toxic fumes. Also discussed are coin-sized 3-volt lithium or "button" batteries which when ingested, send nearly 3,000 children (under 13) for treatment in emergency rooms each year.

Topics Include: Safe Storage; Safety for Children, Pets, and Seniors; 3-Volt Lithium, Coin-Size Batteries Hazards, Ingestion Symptoms and Treatment; Damaged Batteries; Safe Charging; Safety Standards; List of Battery-Operated Items; Lithium Ion Battery Combustion in Laptops, Airplanes, Hoverboards, E-cigarettes, and Cell Phones; and Recycling.
