- 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.

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
