Lithium-ion Battery Safety
Here are a few basic safety tips regarding lithium-ion batteries to avoid overheating, explosion or fire of a lithium-ion battery …
DO NOT …
leave batteries in high temperature areas. Do not leave lithium-ion secondary batteries on the dashboard of a vehicle, on a window sill, or any location where they are exposed to direct sunlight, or high temperatures, such as in a vehicle parked in the sun.
leave lithium-ion batteries or secondary batteries near a heat source, such as a heater.
get batteries wet. Do not spill water, salt water, juice or other fluids on a lithium-ion secondary battery. Doing so may break the protection circuit built into the battery.
recharge lithium-ion batteries in any location where they are exposed to direct sunlight, or exposed to high temperatures, such as in a vehicle parked in the sun. High temperatures may activate the built-in protection mechanism designed to avoid accidents, preventing the battery from being charged, or the protection circuit may break, resulting in the application of abnormal current or voltage when charging.
throw lithium-ion secondary batteries into a fire or other high heat source. Doing so may melt the insulator, damaging the gas exhaust valve and the protection mechanism.
connect the positive and negative terminals of the lithium-ion secondary battery with a metal object. Do not carry or store a lithium-ion secondary battery with metal objects such as necklaces, hair pins, coins or keys. Metal objects may short-circuit the positive and negative terminals of a lithium-ion secondary battery, resulting in a large electrical current.
throw lithium-ion secondary batteries, drop from high places, or subject them to strong impacts. Doing so may break the protection circuit built into the battery. This may result in the battery being charged with an abnormal electric current or voltage.
drive a nail into a lithium-ion battery, hit it with a hammer, or crush it under foot. This may deform the battery and break the built-in protection mechanism.
apply solder to the terminals of a lithium-ion battery. The heat will melt the insulator, damaging the gas exhaust valve and the protection mechanism.
put a lithium-ion battery in a microwave oven, pressure container, or other such devices. Sudden heating may break the seal.
place combustible materials on top of a lithium-ion battery when recharging or discharging.
disassemble or modify a lithium-ion battery. Lithium-ion batteries have a gas exhaust vent and a built-in protection mechanism to prevent accidents.
use batteries that work for an extremely short period of time. If the battery requires frequent charging, replace the battery with new one.
place batteries on top of or near the electromagnetic range.
force decayed batteries into a device. Doing so may deform the lithium-ion batteries and break the internal parts or built-in protection mechanisms.
