Battery Safety Information


IMPORTANT: All batteries contain energy and should be used, stored, and disposed of in an appropriate manner. If charge or use a lithium ion battery improperly, it may result in fire, personal injury and damage to property.

Lithium Ion batteries are potentially hazardous and can present a serious FIRE HAZARD if damaged, defective or improperly used. Larger Lithium batteries and those used for industrial use involving high discharge current and frequent full discharge cycles require special precautions.


  • Please do not disassemble BiXPower lithium ion batteries and power packs. Even a dead battery may still contain a lot of energy. Working on lithium ion battery without proper training and tools is very dangerous. For example, lithium ion battery cells are normally connected with special tools, not regular heat solder ion. By using heat on Li-Ion cells, you can damage the plastic separator, pressure protections or even the main internal lithium layers, may result injury, file or explosion.
  • Never puncture, drop, crush, throw, hit, open, or modify the battery or casing.
  • Do not submerge this product in water.
  • Do not expose the battery to heat above 60C (140F) or incinerate.
  • Do not insert any foreign object into the charging port.
  • Keep the battery away from children.
  • Always dispose of used batteries in accordance with local regulations.
  • If this battery is misused or abused, it can result in personal injury from heat, smoke, fire or explosion.
  • Obtain approval of airlines or courier companies before travelling with or shipping this power pack.

  • Most of lithium ion batteries are designed for using independently. Its very dangerous to connect two or more lithium batteries in parallel or in serial without protection circuits between two lithium ion batteries. One battery can discharge or charge into another battery, damaging it or causing a fire! If you ever need a larger battery, you should upgrade to a larger battery!

    Charging Process

    1.) Please only use authorized charger or charger supplied with the battery to charge the battery.
    2.) Please monitor the charging process and react to potential problems that may occur. Please make sure to leave it on isolated fireproof area, away from other flammable materials. Always have fire extinguisher for emergency use.
    3) Let battery cool down to ambient temperature before charging.
    4) Do not charge batteries packs in series. Charge each battery pack individually. Failure to do so may result in incorrect battery recognition and charging functions. Overcharging may occur and fire may be the result.

    Storage & Handling

    DO NOT leave fully exhausted battery on shelf. Charge it at least at 50% or more level when leave it on shelf and re-charged it every 3 months even not use it.

    Do not leave the battery dormant for long periods of time. We recommend using the battery at least once a month.

    If a battery has not been used for a long period of time, please perform the new battery exercise. Fully discharge and then fully charge the battery at least once every 3 months .

    Always store the battery in a cool and dry place between 0C (32 F) and 20C (70F), and away from flammable materials.

    Never make wrong polarity connection when charging and discharging battery packs. Always double check polarity of battery's connector to make sure red wire to red wire and black wire to black wire.

    Fire/Smoke Emission

    Battery contain flammable/combustible material that can be ignited, explode, release toxic materials, cause burns or give off gases when heated or in contact with sparks or flames.

    In the event of fire, vapor releases, and/or smoke emissions, evacuate the immediate area of all unnecessary personnel.

    Contact/Indigestion

    Elements within the battery may cause skin burns, eye burns and respiratory tract burns if in contact with any of these tissue membranes.

    In the event that the electrolyte inside the battery comes into contact with the skin or eyes, flush area immediately. Seek immediate medical attention.

    For contact with skin, wash the affected area with soap and water. Dry gently with towel. Seek immediate medical attention.

    If fumes are inhaled, leave the immediate area. If not breathing, give artificial resuscitation. If breathing, give oxygen. Seek immediate medical attention.

    If battery material is ingested, give one or two full glasses of water to dilute material. Do not induce vomiting. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Seek immediate medical attention.

    Caution

    • When using the application equipped with battery, refer to the users manual before usage.
    • Please read the specific charger manual before charging.
    • When the cell is not charged after long exposure to the charger, discontinue charging.
    • Battery must be charged at operating temperature range 0--45 C.
    • Battery must be discharged at operating temperature (cell surface temperature) range -20 ~ 60C.
    • Please check the positive (+) and negative (-) direction before packing.
    • When a lead plate or wire is connected to the cell for packing, check out insulation not to short-circuit.
    • Battery must be stored separately.
    • Battery must be stored in a dry area with low temperature for long-term storage.
    • Do not place the battery in direct sunlight or heat.
    • Do not use the battery in high static energy environment where the protection device can be damaged.
    • When rust or smell is detected on first use, please return the product to the seller immediately.
    • The battery must be away from children or pets.
    • When cell life span shortens after long usage, please exchange to new cells.


    Prohibitions

    • Do not short circuit battery by your device itself.
    • Do not use different charger. Do not use cigarette jacks (in cars) for charging.
    • Do not charge with constant current more than maximum charge current.
    • Do not disassemble or reconstruct the battery.
    • Do not throw or cause impact.
    • Do not pierce a hole in the battery with sharp things such as nail, knife, pencil or drill, etc.
    • Do not use with other batteries or cells.
    • Do not solder on battery directly.
    • Do not press the battery with overload in manufacturing process, especially ultrasonic welding.
    • Do not use old and new cells together for packing.
    • Do not expose the battery to high heat such as fire.
    • Do not put the battery into a microwave or high pressure container.
    • Do not use the battery reversed.
    • Do not connect positive (+) and negative (-) with a conductive materials such as metal, wire, etc.
    • Do not allow the battery to be immerged in or wetted with water or sea-water.
