  • Skull Crusher Project Visits Wildcat Adventures Off Road ATV Park

    Skull Crusher Project at Wildcat AdventuresOn October 29th, 2016 a contingent from Impact Battery, a sponsor of the Skull Crusher Project, headed south to showcase the souped up Arctic Cat SxS at the Wildcat Adventures and Off Road Park as part of their haunted Halloween weekend festivities. The 1800 acre park is located a few minutes from I-75 in south central Kentucky just north of London in Laurel county. The weather couldn't have been better! It was a beautiful, unseasonably warm fall day. The balmy temperatures, allure of prizes, and haunted trails teased the huge crowd of thrill seekers and dust-loven-family-focused riders. It was the perfect combination of family fun that kept a steady line of traffic late into the evening.

  • ER Visits Double with Swallowed Battery Hazards Among Young Kids

    As our technology devices keep getting smaller and smaller, so do many of the batteries that power them up. A special concern to emergency room doctors is an increase in the number of tots swallowing the small, flat, so-called “button” batteries that can have tragic results.

    Every three hours a child shows up in a U.S. emergency room with a battery that’s been swallowed or placed in the mouth, ears or nose, a new study shows. Most cases involve a child under the age of 5, with incidents peaking around 2. That number of cases is almost double what it was 20 years ago, according to the report just published in Pediatrics.

    The main culprits are “button batteries,” which account for almost 85 percent of the ER visits, researchers found. These flat, coin-shaped batteries are used in a wide variety of electronic devices, from toys, remote controls, calculators, miscellaneous gadgets, hearing aids, and watches. Many of the toys youngster play with are powered up by these tiny batteries, making the danger even greater.

    ZZ1323CF24.jpgAlthough most kids seen by ER doctors are pronounced healthy and sent home, some of the newer batteries can cause serious damage if they lodge in the throat, says the study’s lead author Dr. Gary Smith, director of the Center for Injury Research and Policy at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio.

    When kids get 3-volt 20 mm lithium batteries lodged in their esophagus, the moisture there can spark a microcurrent, Smith explains in the article. “That will lead to cell death and eventually burn a hole right through the esophagus,” Smith says. “And that will lead to long term scarring and stricture. Even worse, there are some cases where it eroded right into the aorta and the child bled to death. These are horrific, horrific outcomes that need to be prevented.”

    What’s especially scary is that this can all happen quickly, he emphasizes.“Serious damage can occur in less than two hours,” Smith says. “If parents have any suspicion that their child has swallowed a button battery – even if they’re not sure – they need to take the child immediately to the emergency room to get an X-ray to see if the button battery is stuck in the esophagus... This can’t wait till the next morning,” says Smith.

    The new study was based on nationally representative data collected over a 20 year period (1990 to 2009) from approximately 100 U.S. hospitals. When the researchers extrapolated the results to include all U.S. hospitals, they determined that there were nearly 66,000 emergency department visits by children under age 18 for issues involving a battery.

    While there are design considerations being made to create battery compartments with child safety in mind, parents can take some precautionary matters now to protect their youngster. One simple solution is to tape battery compartments closed.

    At Impact Battery, we are your complete battery and charger store! We sell an extensive collection of batteries for the products requiring power, but we felt it important to share this health-related story for anyone to raise awareness on another precaution to take around young children..

  • Recycling Batteries Makes Environmental Sense

    In honor of Earth Day on April 22 and all the rightly-deserved emphasis on helping to reduce our carbon footprint and keep Mother Earth safe and healthy for future generations, we want to use this blog to promote recycling—specifically batteries.

    ZZ3F9279D2.jpg

    Most types of batteries can be recycled, and thanks to efforts of individuals and businesses, more batteries are being recycled than ever before. Certain batteries are recycled more readily than others, and today nearly 90 percent of lead-acid automotive batteries are now recycled.

    Lead-acid batteries include golf cart, motorcycle, UPS, industrial and commercial batteries, to name a few, and can be the regular type, sealed lead acid, gel type, or absorbent glass mat (AGM) batteries. They are recycled through a process that involves grinding them, neutralizing the acid, and then separating the polymers from the lead. The reclaimed materials are then reused in a variety of applications, including making new batteries. By recycling the lead it is kept out of the waste stream.

    Many communities offer recycling centers and sometimes even pick-up services for batteries. It is our hope that you are also recycling in other ways so that we all do our part to maintain and safe and healthy workplace. At Impact Battery, we do our part by impacting communities one battery at a time by donating a portion of every purchase to charity.

    We sell much more than just motorcycle batteries; rather, we are proud to be your complete battery and charger store and offer free shipping to your door on all orders over $50. Check out our updated website when searching for a battery for your car, riding toy, scooter, golf cart, boat and more, and see our great selections at discounted prices. You’ll see why we can become your complete battery and charger store!
