2. Hazards Identification
Classification of the substance or mixture.
Preparation Hazards and Classification: The product is a Lithium ion cell or battery and is therefore classified
as an article and is not hazardous when used according to the recommendations of the manufacturer. The hazard
is associated with the contents of the cell or battery. Under recommended use conditions, the electrode materials
and liquid electrolyte are non-reactive provided that the cell or battery integrity remains and the seals remain intact.
The potential for exposure should not exist unless the cell or battery leaks, is exposed to high temperatures or is
mechanically, electrically or physically abused/damaged. If the cell or battery is compromised and starts to leak,
based upon the battery ingredients, the contents are classified as Hazardous.
Hazard Summary
