When the battery in your electronic safe lock dies, you usually don't find out until you're in a hurry to get something out of your safe. The 9-volt battery in your lock normally lasts between 8,000 and 10,000 openings (that's a lot), but when it dies you suddenly have questions, and sometimes panic. Am I locked out? Is my code still there? Do I have to call a technician?
