Renata Batteries Meet New Zero Mercury Laws
Renata batteries contain no mercury.
Dallas, TX — Renata Batteries division of The SWATCH Group (Switzerland) has developed a comprehensive line of 0 percent mercury silver oxide batteries. These batteries are used to power a wide range of devices, such as watches, medical devices including insulin pumps, glucose meters, surgical tools, heart rate monitors, computer battery back-up, RFID tags, keyless remotes, flashlights, laser pointers, children's toys and talking books.
On July 1, 2011, laws enacted by the states of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Maine will become effective, making it illegal to sell devices powered by battery button cells that contain mercury, including all 1.4V zinc-air and 1.5V alkaline batteries, as well as 1.55V silver-oxide batteries. However, the Maine law initially limits the ban to five silver-oxide battery types (357, 364, 371, 377 and 379) until January 2015, when all button cell batteries must be mercury-free. NEMA has identified these five types as representing 80 percent of the mercury used in silver-oxide batteries.
Some 30 other states have also enacted or are proposing regulations addressing the use of mercury in batteries, meaning that OEMs must use 0 percent mercury button cells in their products if they are to be sold in the regulated states.
In March of 2006, NEMA, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association of the US electrical manufacturing industry, announced its commitment to eliminate added mercury from button cell batteries by June 30, 2011. According to Kessler, Renata is the first manufacturer to release its full line of compliant silver oxide batteries into the North American market.
