Be Safe. Minimize Danger from 9-volt batteries
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.
