Precautions (Rechargeable Battery)

Precautions for Your Safety

Micro-Energy Division Lithium rechargeable batteries (MS, HB, TS) contain fl ammable organic solvents. For your safety, please follow the following prohibitions.

WARNING!

  • Do not charge by higher current or higher voltage than specified.
    Doing so may generate gas inside the battery, resulting in swelling, fire, heat generation or bursting.
  • Do not heat, disassemble, nor dispose of in fire.
    Doing so damages the insulation materials and may cause fire, heat generation, leakage or bursting.
  • Do not solder directly to the battery.
    If soldering is performed directly to the battery, the battery is heated up, consequently causing leakage, explosion or fire due to overheating from internal short-circuit.
  • Do not short.
    If the (+) and (-) come into contact with metal materials, short-circuit occurs. As a result, fire, heat generation, leakage or bursting may occur.
  • Keep batteries out of children’s reach.
    It is dangerous that children swallow the battery. When you design mechanical hardware around the battery, please fix the battery firmly in order to prevent children from removing it. When you store the batteries, please keep the batteries out of children’s reach. If a battery is swallowed, consult a physician immediately.
  • Do not reverse placement of (+) and (-).
    If the (+) and (-) side of the battery is reverse inserted, it may cause a short-circuit or over discharge of the battery on some equipment and it may induce overheating, explosion or fire.
  • Do not discharge by force.
    If the battery is discharged by direct connection to an external power supply etc., voltage of the battery will decline lower than 0 volt (electrical reversal) and will cause the battery case to expand, overheat, leak, explode or burn.
  • In case of leakage or a strange smell, keep away from fire to prevent ignition of any leaked electrolyte. 
  • Do not weld terminals to the battery.
    The heat by welding may cause fire, heat generation, leakage or bursting. We weld standard terminals under strictly controlled conditions. If you need to weld terminals to the battery, please consult us in advance.
  • In case of disposal, insulate between (+) and (-) of battery by an insulating material. 
    Jumbling batteries or with other metal materials cause short-circuit. As a result, fire, heat generation, leakage or bursting may occur.

Example

CAUTION!

  • If leaked liquid gets into the eyes, wash them with clean water and consult a physician immediately. 
  • Do not use new and used batteries together. Do not use different types of batteries together. 
    It may cause fire, heat generation, leakage or bursting.
  • If you connect two or more batteries in series or parallel, please consult us in advance 
    It may cause bursting or fire due to unbalanced load or voltage.
  • Do not use nor leave the batteries in direct sunlight nor in high-temperature areas. 
    It may cause fire, heat generation, leakage or bursting.
  • Do not apply strong pressure to the batteries nor handle roughly. 
    It may cause fire, heat generation, leakage or bursting.
  • Avoid contact with water. 
    It may cause heat generation.
  • Keep batteries away from direct sunlight, high temperature and humidity. 
    It may cause heat generation or performance deterioration.
