Section 4: First-Aid Measures
Symptoms of Exposure: Under conditions of normal use there should be no exposure to hazardous materials.
In the event of an opened battery situation:
Inhalation: Contents of an opened battery cell can cause respiratory irritation
Ingestion: Contents of battery cell can cause stomach irritation / burns. Seek medical help immediately
Skin Contact: Contents of an opened battery cell can cause skin irritation
Eye Contact: Contents of an opened battery cell can cause eye irritation
Section 5: Fire-Fighting Measures
Extinguishing Media: CO2, Dry chemical or foam. Water may be effective in extinguishing fire in materials
surrounding lithium ion batteries.
Unusual Fire & Explosion Hazards: Fires in confined spaces or involving large quantities of lithium ion batteries
may produce dangerous fumes.
Do not open, crush, disassemble, or incinerate battery. Do not expose battery to extreme heat or fire.
Section 6: Accidental Release Measures
Remove personnel from area until fumes dissipate. If the skin has come into contact with the electrolyte, it
should be washed thoroughly with water.
Sand or earth should be used to absorb any exuded material. Seal leaking battery and contaminated
absorbent material in plastic bag and dispose of as Special Waste in accordance with local regulations.
Section 7: Handling and Storage
Storage: Store in a cool place, prevent condensation on cell or battery terminals. Elevated temperatures may
result in reduced battery life. Optimum storage temperatures are between -31°F and 95°F.
Handling: Short circuit will bring high temperature elevation to the battery as well as shorten the battery life.
Avoid short circuits as the heat can burn attendant skin and rupture the battery cell case.
Batteries packaged in bulk containers should not be shaken.
