We want to ensure your safety and provide you with essential information regarding products that contain lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are commonly found in various electronic devices, such as laptops, smartphones, and rechargeable tools. While lithium batteries offer high energy density and long-lasting performance, they also come with some safety considerations.
Here are some important safety tips to keep in mind when using products with lithium batteries:
- Avoid Extreme Temperatures: Lithium-ion batteries are sensitive to extreme temperatures. Do not expose them to direct sunlight, excessive heat, or extreme cold, as it can damage the battery or, in rare cases, lead to thermal runaway.
- Use the Correct Charger: Always use the charger provided with the product or one specifically designed for lithium-ion batteries. Using an incorrect charger can result in overheating and damage to the battery.
- Do Not Overcharge: Avoid overcharging your device. Most modern devices have built-in protection to prevent overcharging, but it’s essential to unplug your device once it’s fully charged.
- Store Safely: If you’re not using a device for an extended period, store it in a cool, dry place with a charge level of approximately 50%. This can help prolong the life of the battery.
- Handle with Care: Avoid dropping or puncturing lithium-ion batteries, as it can lead to leaks, fires, or other hazardous situations. If a battery appears damaged, discontinue use immediately.
- Recycle Responsibly: When disposing of lithium-ion batteries, please do so in accordance with local regulations and recycling programs. Do not throw them in the trash.
- Monitor for Swelling: If you notice a lithium-ion battery swelling or changing shape, stop using the device and seek professional assistance. Swelling can be a sign of a damaged or faulty battery.
- Use Original Accessories: Whenever possible, use original accessories and replacement parts recommended by the manufacturer to ensure compatibility and safety.
Additional safety guidelines:
- Don’t recharge when you are away, or sleeping.
- Charge in a cool, dry place away from flammables or other battery-powered devices.
- Let the device cool before charging.
- Keep away from heat sources.
- Don’t charge to 100 percent and don’t run it down to zero.
- Replace any batteries damaged from impact.
- Plug directly into a wall electrical outlet for charging.
- Never use aftermarket (or generic) batteries or chargers.
