Make the Most of Your Calculator Battery
Your calculator can save you a significant amount of time when you’re solving math problems, but if the battery is dead, it can’t help at all. Here are a few tips to help keep your battery strong:
- Store the calculator in a cool, dry place. Also avoid leaving it on a desk or table where it might be exposed to sunlight for extended periods of time, as this can overheat the battery.
- If possible, adjust the power-save settings of your device. If the calculator can power itself off after a specified period of inactivity, you can prevent unintentionally draining the battery.
- Don’t mix batteries. When you replace the batteries in your device, swap out every battery with a brand new one from the same brand. Different brands and older batteries will have different power levels, which will limit the effectiveness of your device.
Which Type of Battery Does Your Calculator Need?
The type of battery you’re looking for will depend on the make and model of your calculator. The most common types of batteries for calculators are standard AAA and coin cell batteries, but the packaging or instructions for your device will tell you which type you need.
