1.7 BATTERY SAFETY
The battery pack of your transceiver contains lithium-Ion cells.
This type of battery stores a charge powerful enough to be dangerous
if misused or abused, especially when removed from the transceiver.
Please observe the following precautions:
DO NOT SHORT BATTERY PACK TERMINALS
Shorting the terminals that power the transceiver can cause sparks,
severe over heating, burns, and battery cell damage.
If the short is of sufficient duration, it is possible to melt the battery
components. Do not place a loose battery pack on or near a metal
surface or objects such as paper clips, keys, tools etc.
When the battery pack is installed on the transceiver, the terminals
that transfer current to the transceiver are not exposed.
The terminals that are exposed on the battery pack when it is mounted
on the transceiver are charging terminals only and do not constitute a
hazard.
DO NOT INCINERATE
Do not dispose of your battery in a fire or incinerator.
The heat of fire may cause battery cells to explode and/or release
dangerous gases.
DISPOSE OF BATTERY PACKS PROPERLY
Lithium-Ion battery packs must be recycled or disposed of properly.
For requirements in your area, check with the dealer from whom you
purchased your transceiver.
