Electrolyte leakage: long-term alkaline batteries will leak electrolyte. Since the electrolyte is a corrosive alkaline substance, potassium hydroxide, it will have an irritating effect on the eyes, respiratory tract and skin; the electrolyte will also corrode metals and damage Electronic parts, so the electrolyte leaking from the battery will also damage the products using the battery, especially electronic products.

Do not charge alkaline batteries: Charging alkaline batteries will also cause the battery to leak electrolyte, or even rupture the battery. A very small number of alkaline batteries are designed to be rechargeable, but they can only be charged with a relatively small current. It often takes a full day or more to achieve an obvious charging effect, and the number of recharges is not many, which is quite inconvenient. So it has been difficult to find in the market. There are also chargers that claim to be able to charge ordinary disposable alkaline batteries, but such products cannot guarantee the performance of the fully charged battery.

Use batteries of the same model and capacity: When using more than one battery, use the same model or even the same brand of batteries; avoid mixing old and new batteries together. Otherwise, the risk of electrolyte leakage will increase.

Separate storage when not in use: When the device with battery is not in use, the battery should be taken out and stored separately to avoid damage to the battery device when the electrolyte leaks out of storage for too long.
