Some devices have a small bump or spring where the positive terminal of the cell connects, and this allows the use of either button- or flat-top cells. They have been replaced in some applications by zinc-air batterieswhich also produce 1.
July Learn how and when to remove this template message These are round batteries with height longer than their diameter. Dip a toothbrush in water and use it to scrub the baking soda into the terminal posts and cable clamps.
Non-standard brand-specific names[ edit ] Manufacturers may assign proprietary names and numbers to their batteries, disregarding common, colloquial, IEC, and ANSI naming conventions see LR44 battery as an example.
Once they are loose, always remove the cable clamp from the negative terminal first. Rub the cloth over the affected areas. The full battery designation identifies not only the size, shape and terminal layout of the battery but also the chemistry and therefore the voltage per cell and the number of cells in the battery.
Rarely however, a manufacturer may include tiny bumps on the negative terminal, so flat-tops can be used in series. Either method will work to remove the corrosion. If you choose a solvent that is the same pH acid or alkaline as your batteries, it will work by dissolving the corrosion.
A mixture of four parts water and one part baking soda can also be used.

When the corrosion is removed, wipe the area with a clean cloth moistened with water. Other types produce other voltages per package, as low as 1.
Reverse the procedure, positive first, negative second, when replacing the cables. See Battery Chemistries for a list of other electrochemical systems.
Examine the battery cables and clamps for excess wear or corrosion. Replace the rubber boot or plastic shield that covers the positive terminal.
This package has a positive nub terminal at the cap of the cell, and the negative terminal at the bottom of the can; the side of the can is not used as a terminal.
Both standards have several parts that cover general principles, physical specifications, and safety. Use a soft cloth or paper towel to gently wipe off as much of the dry corrosion in the battery compartment as possible. Replace the positive clamp first and then replace the negative clamp.
Physical interchangeability[ edit ] Cylindrical cells typically have a positive terminal nub at one end, and a flat negative terminal at the other.

If you choose a cleaner that has the opposite pH, a chemical reaction will occur, causing fizzing. Touching the corrosion with your bare skin can give you chemical burns.
Sometimes, especially if there is a lot of corrosion, you may need the assistance of pair of locking pliers. Two different cells of the same nominal size, e. This stops the flat negative end of a cell from connecting accidentally, but also stops the positive end of a flat-top or of a button-top with too large button from connecting.
If you find either, replace the battery. It is important to check the battery contacts in a device before attempting to install cells, because some will not work with flat-tops or with button-tops whose buttons are the wrong diameter.
For example, if a remote control needs a new battery and the battery compartment has the label, "Replace with CX type battery," many customers will buy that specific brand, not realizing that this is simply a brand name for a common type of battery.Online shopping for paper lantern kids?
