Battery Dater Labels: Use, Benefits, and Choosing the Right Kind

Battery Labels

From vehicle batteries, to batteries for handheld products, to uninterruptible power supply (UPS) batteries that can power a facility during a power outage, there are several types of batteries that are used in different capacities. Although batteries can be quite different in terms of their use, how much energy they supply, and how long they supply it, they all have something in common: They deliver electrical current to support the operation of devices and equipment that rely on constant or occasional battery power.

Why Do Batteries Have Punch Out Dates?

Because batteries play a crucial role in supplying power, end users need to know the expected lifespan of the batteries they install. One way a battery’s lifespan can be indicated is through the use of battery dater labels that feature “punch out dates”.

For example, battery dater labels for vehicle batteries commonly feature a series of punch out options that are used to indicate the year a battery was manufactured, and another series of punch out options that indicate the month the battery’s lifespan begins within the year the product was manufactured. When batteries come with a limited warranty, the warranty period will last for the duration of the product’s lifespan, or at least a part of it.

So, one reason batteries have punch out dates is to help battery users keep track of the warranty period. Other reasons include: helping buyers avoid batteries that were produced many months ago and have a shorter than expected lifespan, helping sellers avoid selling partially drained batteries, and helping sellers ensure that batteries returned on warranty claims are indeed the batteries they sold.

Considerations for Battery Dater Labels

When it comes to where they are used, battery dater labels are like batteries themselves: To offer the highest level of performance, they must be designed based on the final application of batteries. For example, a vehicle battery dater label could benefit from having a synthetic, smooth, non-fibrous composition that makes it easy to wipe away engine grime, and label adhesive that’s formulated to perform well under the heat the motor produces.

Moreover, a battery dater label shouldn’t be designed as one-size-fits-all solution. Rather, it should be created with a specific type of battery and battery application guiding the design process. This is how we produce battery dater labels at Flexo-Graphics. After carefully examining your needs, the needs of your products, and the needs of your customers, we supply best in class labels that perfectly suit your requirements.

Are Your Battery Labels Identifiable?

Batteries play a crucial role in several types of environments, from car batteries, to data centers that require batteries in the form of uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), to smoke detectors and emergency lighting that require standard edition batteries.

Regardless of how batteries are implemented, they should feature certain types of battery labels that address the safety factors and range of batteries that are used for general or specific purposes in residential, commercial, or industrial applications.

Application of Battery Labels

Regardless of their area of implementation, most batteries contain basic safety information such as the load size they can carry based on wattage, the presence of corrosive substances inside the battery, and the intended use for the battery, whether it is designed for general application or use with a specific product or operating system.

Naturally, the battery labels you require depend on the type of batteries you use and how you use them. With this in mind, essential label information for batteries could require one or more of the following types of information, among others, to ensure the safety and proper battery use.

  1. Used Battery Labels

Eco conscious companies don’t toss batteries in the trash, because they know that toxic substances inside the products can leak out and further pollute landfill space, which is where most batteries end up after they are trashed and picked up by a waste removal service.

If your company has a repository where it keeps spent batteries before it forwards them to the proper recycler, it’s a good idea to mark the used battery containment unit with a “used batteries” label to prevent the batteries from being reused and creating equipment failures.

  1. Spillable/Non-Spillable Battery Labels

Some batteries — particularly automotive batteries — contain an electrolyte-based solution of sulfuric acid and water that transfer between a series of lead plates to support the batteries’ functionality. The fluid is well-contained. However, removing stoppers from holes in the top of a battery can allow access to the toxic liquid. Batteries that are “spillable” should be marked as such to prevent chemical burns, whereas non spillable batteries should be marked as such to provide a safety indicator.

  1. Lithium Ion Battery Labels

The FAA, it has issued multiple warnings and videos that demonstrate how lithium batteries can “self-ignite” and lead to airplane crashes. Furthermore, when lithium ion batteries combust, they can release toxic substances associated with the development of brain and liver cancer.

These considerations are why it is absolutely essential to outfit lithium ion batteries with a label that communicates the message, “If package is damaged, batteries must be quarantined, inspected, and, [if they are found to be in serviceable condition] repackaged.

  1. Battery Charging Station Labels

Some companies prefer to use rechargeable batteries whenever possible to reduce battery purchase costs. However, recharging batteries using a re-charger whose connector cables attach to batteries to recharge them presents a potential danger: If the battery charger is not powered off before the cables are removed, it could deliver a shock to the worker.

Applying labels to battery charging stations that clearly indicate the danger of handling live charger cables helps workers avoid serious shocks that, in the most serious cases, could lead to filing workers compensation claims and injury lawsuits that financially burden the employer.

The Beauty Behind Marketing with Custom Battery Labels

Custom-Battery-LabelPutting a product out on the market is a big job and while there are many aspects to cover, it is essential to ensure that the label does its job! Does your company sell merchandise in the automotive, marine, or lawn and garden consumer markets? If so, then a personal label with the name of the company, not the manufacturer is a way to promote a service atmosphere where customers are essentially buying local.

In these industries, the selling of batteries for a lawn mower, car, or boat is ideal for using a private line of battery labels. First, consider the major brands made available for resale to companies. If an OEM manufactures the merchandise, having their name on the shelved item will actually make it harder to sell.

A prime example of this is Wal-Mart who markets EverStart as a brand, which is actually made by one of the largest battery OEMs. By using a professional to create a private line of battery labels, you gain these benefits:

  • Perception of Better Service & Value
  • Local Feel to Customers
  • Company Branding Perks
  • Easier Customer Sales
  • Enhanced Control Over the Product

More companies are turning to private branding techniques such as company battery labels. If marketing this specific product, then there is no doubt to the plethora of benefits offered by having the company name on it.

Why Private Line Battery Labels?

In the past, it has been common to view store labeled products as a lower cost option over national brands, but in the recent years this view has shifted significantly. In fact, customers typically prefer to buy a private label brand rather than the alternative. So, it is safe to say you automatically gain customer approval by putting your name on sold products. The real question is how do you generate the battery label?
The easiest approach is to have an experienced company handle the design and printing processes. It is expensive to buy the equipment and bring in the experience necessary to make this happen. Most labeling companies offer set prices for a certain production counts, whether customized or not. Thanks to the introduction of digital labeling technology, it is not costly to obtain small counts of labels for each battery type. A qualified company will be able to assist with:

  • Research & Development
  • Graphics & File Management
  • Warehousing
  • Inventory Management
  • Cost Analysis
  • Digital Printing
  • Prototyping

Private line battery labels are a great choice for any business operating in a small town or neighborhood. A garage selling these items as part of offered services could use custom battery labels on products to gain customer appeal. The same goes if the market base is for lawn mowers or auto parts sales.

This simple, low cost option provides the down home feel customers want when shopping at or obtaining services from any business.
