English term or phrase: Hilfe mit Satz bitte
"The type of Lithium battery we use in our portable devices are non-rechargeable or dry primary battery that contains no lead, mercury or cadmium. "

Das Englisch ist furchtbar, aber mir fehlt auch technisches Wissen, um es zu interpretieren, kann mir jemand bitte helfen? Was ist die Batterie? Nicht aufladbar, aber auch "trocken"?

...enthalten nicht wiederaufladbare Lithium-Batterien.


(...Mobilgeräte bla, bla, bla)...enthalten nicht wiederaufladbare Lithium-Batterien.
.. Diese Primärzellen sind garantiert Blei-, Quecksilber- und Cadmium-frei.

"Garantiert" is there to make it a little more "werblich"

neutral  Anna Augustin: I would cut the "Garantiert", though. If the company doesn't actually guarantee it, you shouldn't say so in the translation imho.

  -> Is this an agreement with the exception of garantiert? - if so, then a neutral rating would be more appropriate

"Nicht wiederaufladbar" und "Trockenbatterien"

Ich würde näher beim Original bleiben (auch, wenn es etwas holprig ist).

"Bei den Lithium-Batterien in unseren Mobilgeräten handelt es sich um nicht wiederaufladbare Batterien oder um blei-, quecksilber- oder cadmiumfreie Trockenbatterien."

Trockenbatterien sind eine bestimmte Art Batterie. Außerdem wichtig: Es ist bleifrei und nicht Bleifrei.

neutral  Yorkshireman: The problem here is that "oder" does not come into the equation. As someone already mentioned, a "bzw." would fit the bill. The actual batteries are being described in two different ways, both of which mean the same. See discussion 23:32 Oct 11

  -> The discussion was hidden, yes, bzw. is even better indeed :)
