Button Cell Batteries Have No MercuryTo help OEMs of portable medical and consumer electronic devices remain compliant with new laws banning the use of mercury in button cell batteries, the Renata Batteries division of The SWATCH Group (Switzerland) has developed a comprehensive line of 0% 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.

"Renata, as one of the world's leading producers of miniature batteries, has been in the forefront of the move to eliminate the use of mercury in button cells," said Henry Kessler, president of Renata Batteries North American Headquarters. "We now have the full range of 0% mercury silver oxide batteries available, well in advance of the growing list of North American regulations, ensuring that our customers have a fully compliant mercury-free battery alternative available for all their new designs and replacement battery requirements."
