When to Replace Your Emergency Lighting Battery

You don't want to take any chances in an emergency, so it's essential that your personal and commercial emergency light batteries function at their best. Depending on the type of emergency device you have, you might see a warning light to indicate that your battery is running low. In other devices, you might notice a flickering light or a slow startup. If your device only uses batteries as a back-up power source, you may not even notice that they’re running low until you're in an emergency situation.

If you're not sure whether your emergency exit light batteries are working properly, drop into one of our Batteries Plus Bulbs stores where our experts can help you figure out if it's time for a replacement. Visit your nearest store for assistance, no appointment necessary.

Finding the Right Emergency Lighting Battery

There are a few things to consider when you're shopping for the right emergency light battery replacement. Different models of emergency devices have different power needs, so it's important to find a replacement battery that meets or exceeds the original manufacturer specifications.

Size, Shape and Voltage

Don’t spend your time and money on a replacement battery only to find it doesn't fit. Before you shop online or in-store, check the size, shape and voltage of your current battery. If you're not sure about the specifications, bring your old battery into your local Batteries Plus Bulbs store and one of our associates can help you find the right match.

Battery Type

Most emergency lighting devices use either a classic sealed lead battery or a nickel-cadmium battery. Both types are rechargeable, and each has unique advantages and disadvantages. Lead acid batteries have a better temperature resistance, making them a safer choice for outdoor applications. Nickel-cadmium batteries typically have a longer lifespan and are also smaller and lighter for compact devices. While both types are popular for emergency lighting, not all systems accept both, so be sure to check your device specifications before buying a replacement.

Know the Usage

Depending upon the type of emergency lighting device, it may be fully battery-operated or use batteries only as a backup power source. Check the primary power source of your emergency lighting to help decide which type of battery fits best.

If you've found the perfect battery but you're still having trouble with your emergency lighting fixture, it may be time to replace your device. Shop our selection of emergency fixtures, including exit signs, lights and combo units with classic and LED designs, for efficient and trustworthy emergency lighting.

Where to Recycle Your Emergency Lighting Battery

Once you're all set with your new emergency exit light battery, safely dispose of the old one. Each of our Batteries Plus Bulbs stores includes a drop-off point so you can recycle used batteries and buy new ones all in one place.
