SECTION IV – FIRST-AID MEASURES

Ingestion:

Swallowing a battery can be harmful. Seek medical attention immediately. Call The National Capital

Poison Control Center (202-625-3333) collect, or your local Poison Control Center (800-222-1222), day or

night, for advice and follow-up.

Inhalation:

Contents of an open battery can cause respiratory irritation.

Provide fresh air and seek medical attention.

Skin Contact:

Contents of an open battery can cause skin irritation and/or chemical burns. Remove contaminated clothing

and wash skin with soap and water. If a chemical burn occurs or if irritation persists, seek medical

attention.

Eye Contact:

Contents of an open battery can cause severe irritation and/or chemical burns. Immediately flush eyes

thoroughly with copious quantities of flowing lukewarm water for a minimum of 15 minutes. Seek

immediate medical attention.

SECTION V – FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES

If fire or explosion occurs when batteries are on charge, shut off power to charger.

In case of fire where lithium ion batteries are present, flood the area with water. If any batteries are burining,

water may not extinguish them, but will cool the adjacent batteries and control the spread of fire. CO 2 , dry

chemical and foam extinguishers are preferred for small fires, but also may not extinguish burning lithium

ion batteries. Burning batteries will burn themselves out. Virtually all fires involving lithium ion batteries can

be controlled with water. When water is used, however, hydrogen gas may be evolved which can form an

explosive mixture with air. LITH-X (powdered graphite) or copper powder fire extinguishers, sand dry

ground dolomite or soda ash may also be used. These materials act as apply smothering agents.

Fire fighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Burning lithium ion batteries can produce toxic

fumes including HF, oxides of carbon, aluminum, lithium, copper and cobalt.

SECTION VI - SPILL OR LEAK PROCEDURES

Procedures to Contain and Clean Up Leaks or Spills:

The preferred response is to leave the area and allow the batteries to cool and the vapors to dissipate. Avoid

skin and eye contact or inhalation of vapors. Remove spilled liquid with absorbent and incinerate.

Reporting Procedure:

Report all spills in accordance with Federal, State and Local reporting requirements.

SECTION VII - PRECAUTIONS FOR SAFE HANDLING AND USE

Storage:

Store in a cool, dry, and well-ventilated area. Elevated temperature can result in shortened battery life.

Storing unpackaged cells together could result in cell shorting and heat build-up.

Mechanical Containment:

Do not obstruct safety release vents on batteries. Encapsulation (potting) of batteries will not allow cell

venting and can cause high-pressure rupture.

Handling:

Accidental short circuit for a few seconds will not seriously affect the battery. However, this battery is

capable of delivering very high short circuit currents. Prolonged short circuits will cause high cell

temperatures that can cause skin burns. Sources of short circuits include jumbled batteries in bulk containers,

metal jewelry, and metal covered tables or metal belts used for assembly of batteries into devices.

If soldering or welding to the battery is required, use of tabbed batteries is recommended.

Do not disassemble or deform battery.

Charging:

This battery is made to be charged many times. Because it gradually loses its charge over a few months, it is

good practice to charge battery before use. Use recommended charger. Improper charging can cause heat

damage or even high pressure rupture. Observe proper charging polarity.

Hazardous polymerization will not occur

SECTION XI - HEALTH HAZARD DATA

Under normal conditions of use, the battery is hermetically sealed. Risk of exposure occurs only if the

battery is mechanically or electrically abused. Organic solvent has slightly toxicity and can irritate skin and

eyes. Lithium salt is irritating to skin, eyes and mucous membranes and should be avoided.
