Warning: 9 Volt Batteries can be extremely hazardous!
9 volt batteries are often used in certain DSLR shotgun microphones, or audio preamps and it's not uncommon to travel with a few spares in your bag. For safety reasons it's important that you should always keep your 9 volt batteries stored properly.
These plastic hard cases are perfect for storing and transporting (2) 9 Volt batteries while keeping you and your equipment safe from a possible short across the terminals. These small plastic cases can also be used to hold and protect other small items.
This listing offers (3) Protective travel cases capable of holding (2) 9 volt batteries in each case.
The NFPA’s 9-volt battery safety tip sheet describes some of the dangers of storing 9-volt batteries in a drawer near paper clips, pens, coins, or other batteries. This applies to any 9-volt batteries, whether they are recently purchased or appear to be “dead.”
Anything from keys, aluminum foil, and steel wool should never be kept near 9-volt batteries as they can easily short across the terminals and start a fire.
Batteries should be kept in original packaging until ready for use. If loose, keep both terminals covered with masking, duct, or electrical tape. Or in a proper 9 Volt Battery Protective Case.
The NFPA sheet also gives tips on the safe disposal of 9-volt batteries: Cover the posts with masking tape, duct tape or electrical tape before tossing them. Check to see what the regulations are in your municipality – some prohibit throwing 9-volt batteries in the trash. Of course, the best choice is to take them to a collection center for household hazardous waste.
It is ironic that the 9 volt batteries we use in our smoke alarms could cause a potential hazard, but regardless of the use homeowners should take care to follow simple safety precautions.
Why are your lav microphones cheaper than other lavs?
In the world of big business, you have distributors that import products into different countries, which work with sales people that specialize in regions, who then hand the product over to retail chains for sale. This process often requires a certain percentage increase for each step in the process, often requiring up to a 90% increase in pricing.
At this time, we are still a small company that ships products directly from our USA warehouse with products only available through our online channels. At the moment we are able to offer pricing much lower than other microphones found in retail stores or with retail partners.
Unfortunately every business needs to expand, and as we begin to partner with retail stores our prices will have to be increased to support the new supply chain. So it's a great time to take advantage of our small business and our great pricing.
Do you warranty your products?
Yes, we offer a full 5 Years of coverage with your Lavalier microphones. Each microphone ships with a it's own warranty card. Should you have any problems, we'll have you ship your microphone back with the Warranty Card and we'll send you a new Lav mic along with a new Warranty Card. Please contact us so that we can coordinate with you before sending the item back.
Is there a return policy?
