Take the following precautions when handling lithium-ion batteries:

  • Do not place the lithium-ion battery in fire or apply heat to the battery.
  • Do not damage the battery with a sharp or blunt object, step on the battery, or otherwise damage the outer casing.
  • Do not subject the battery to strong impacts or shocks.
  • Do not expose the battery to water or salt water, or allow the battery to get wet.
  • Do not disassemble or modify the battery. The battery contains safety and protection devices which, if damaged, may cause the battery to generate heat, rupture, or ignite.
  • Do not leave the battery in direct sunlight, or use or store the battery inside cars in hot weather. Doing so may cause the battery to generate heat, rupture, or ignite. Using the battery in this manner may also result in shortened lifespan and loss of performance.
  • Never short circuit, reverse polarity, disassemble, damage, or heat the battery over 100 °C (212 °F).
  • DO NOT SPILL WATER ON A BURNING BATTERY. A fire extinguisher must be used. If an exposed lithium-ion battery catches fire, it will burn even more violently if it comes into contact with water or even moisture in the air.
