Coin Cell Date Codes

Coin Cell Date Codes - or Coin-cell are a little hard to find.

Two Letter code

They are on the side of the battery - it is a two letter code. The second letter represents the year of manufacture. As an example if it says YN

The Y means which plant made them
The letter N is the 14th letter of the alphabet which means they were manufactured in 2014.

They claim a 5 year shelf life - considered usable in this time.

Energizer should make date code information available on the packaging. They really have a responsibility to at least communicate how to read the two-letter-code, but they don't.
