Emergency light fixtures are used in many commercial, industrial, municipal and large residential buildings to provide illumination when the power is disrupted and to mark exits for evacuation purposes. They are available as standalone fixtures that contain a battery, a charging circuit and energy-efficient light bulbs, providing light to darkened rooms and hallways during an emergency, as well as illuminated signs that direct occupants along evacuation routes to designated emergency exits.

In order to meet local, state and federal code requirements, and provide plenty of operating time for occupants to get to safety, emergency lights typically must provide at least 90 minutes of illumination. After several years of operation, the original Lithonia battery in each emergency light fixture will start showing signs of age, and it may start causing the fixture to operate poorly or not at all.

Lighting manufactures a large selection of lighting products for use in industrial, commercial and residential buildings, but it is well known for its line of battery-powered emergency lights and signs. These products combine a battery, charging system and energy-efficient lighting into a small package that provides emergency lights for building evacuations or illuminated signs that mark escape routes during events like power outages or natural disasters. The battery in each fixture can typically provide over ninety minutes of power to the emergency lights or signs, giving a building's occupants plenty of time to get to the exits safely, and allowing emergency personnel plenty of time to clear the building of all occupants.

After several years, even the best types of rechargeable batteries will need to be replaced. Each kind of rechargeable battery has a fixed number of discharge and recharge cycles that it can endure under the best conditions, and if it is not maintained properly, it can endure even fewer cycles, reducing its lifespan significantly.

Emergency light fixtures are a staple in all large industrial, commercial and multi-unit residential complexes. During a power outage, they are designed to come on automatically, supplying at least 90 minutes of illumination that allows the building's occupants to safely exit, and, in the case of a fire, earthquake, or other natural disaster, they are designed to provide emergency responders with enough light to make sure that the building has been cleared of occupants. After the power is restored, the emergency light batteries are then automatically recharged, so they are ready for the next time power is lost.
