Safety Equipment Batteries
The humble battery might not immediately seem like an essential piece of safety equipment - but the fact is that it really is.
Employers are obliged under the 1974 Health and Safety at Work Act to provide a well-managed working environment for their staff. If you’ve let the batteries in your smoke alarms go flat, or an employee urgently needs to inspect some equipment to detect a potentially hazardous fault, but finds that the batteries in the torch needed to see what’s wrong have leaked and died, you’ve failed to honour that obligation.
Batteries power safety essentials like these, along with communication tools like radios, and they’re in use in just about every office, warehouse, factory, hospital, school, etc. That means they’ll need to be regularly replaced. Thankfully, SafetyShop.com has a wide range of economical and easy-to-order batteries on offer to meet this need.

To be technical for a moment; a battery is an electrochemical package encased in protective material that releases an electrical charge on demand through inner chemical reactions, or provides a static potential for power. Chemical energy, in other words, gets converted in a battery into electricity which is then used as a source of power.
We won’t wander into the dizzying variety of different batteries on offer these days, safe to say that there really is a mind-boggling diversity of different types using a variety of chemicals and materials to function.
At SafetyShop.com, you’ll find a selection of the most commonly used batteries at economical prices.
Our Duracell Procell Industrial Batteries aren’t available on the high street, but they’re a superior product delivering consistent, reliable performance on a long-term basis for a large variety of devices. They come in packs of 10 and are available in all the most commonly used sizes (AA, AAA, C, D and PP3 9V).
For those who need a rugged battery with a little more brawn – say, to power communication and radio equipment – our 6 Volt Type PJ996 Battery is just what the doctor ordered. These chunky heavy-duty batteries are also commonly used in portable lanterns and torches.
If you find that zinc carbon batteries run out of steam too quickly, try our Alkacell Super Alkaline Batteries, which outlive them by a factor of six times. They’re the perfect solution for devices that need a high current drain when in continuous or intermittent use. Again, these items are available in each of the most widely used sized (AA, AAA, C, D, PP3 9V)
As far as rechargeable batteries go, Duracell Rechargeable NiMH Batteries are true market leaders, capable of more than 1000 recharges and lasting as much as 40 per cent longer than regular nickel-cadmium varieties. The chargers never overheat, so the batteries are spared heat damage during recharging. Each battery comes with an LED indicator which shows when charging is complete. The AA, AAA, C and D versions typically have a 7-hour charge time, while 12-hours are required for the PP3 9V version.
You’ll need a Duracell Rechargeable Ni-MH Charger when you purchase these items, which we also supply.
SafetyShop.com can supply the most widely used batteries for common applications in workplaces at highly competitive prices, and if you put in a regular order you’ll never have to worry about that smoke alarm going flat again.
Do you supply standard long life batteries?
Yes. We supply packs of the world’s most powerful alkaline type, Duracell Ultra M3 Batteries, which last 40 percent longer than their lithium rivals.
