HANDLING PRECAUTIONS
WARNING!
• If recharging operation fails to complete even when a specified recharging time
has elapsed, immediately stop further recharging. Otherwise, electrolyte leakage,
overheating, smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition may occur.
• Do not put the battery into a microwave oven or a pressurised container. Rapid
heating or punctured sealing may lead to electrolyte leakage, overheating, smoke
emission, bursting and/or ignition.
• If the battery leaks or gives off a bad odor, remove it from any exposed flame.
Otherwise, the leaking electrolyte may catch fire, and the battery may emit smoke,
burst or ignite.
• If the battery gives off an odor, generates heat, becomes discolored or deformed,
or in any way appears abnormal during use, recharging or storage, immediately
remove it from the equipment or battery charger and stop using it. Otherwise, the
problematic battery may develop electrolyte leakage, overheating, smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition.
CAUTION!
• Do not use or subject the battery to intense sunlight or hot temperatures such
as in a car in hot weather. Otherwise, electrolyte leakage, overheating and/or
smoke emission may occur. Also, its guaranteed performance will be lost and/or
its service life will be shortened.
• The battery incorporates built-in safety devices. Do not use it in a location where
static electricity may be present. Otherwise, the safety devices may be damaged,
possibly leading to electrolyte leakage, overheating, smoke emission, bursting
and/or ignition.
• The guaranteed recharging temperature range is 0˚C to 40˚C. A recharging operation outside this temperature range may lead to electrolyte leakage and/or
overheating of the battery, and may cause damage to it.
• If electrolyte leaking from the battery contacts your skin or clothing, immediately wash
it away with running water. Failure to do this may result in skin inflammation.
• Store the battery in a location where children cannot reach it. Also, make sure that a
child does not remove the battery from the battery charger or equipment.
• If you find discoloration, a bad odor due to leakage, overheating and/or other
irregularities when using the battery for the first time contact your RED™ service
representative.
DANGER!
• Do not disassemble or modify the battery. The battery is equipped with built-in
safety/protection features. Should these features be disabled, the battery may
leak corrosive chemicals, overheat, emit smoke, burst and/or ignite.
• Do not connect the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals to a metal object such
as a wire. Do not transport or store the battery together with metal objects such
as jewelry, hairpins, etc. In such cases, short-circuiting or over-current flow may
occur causing the battery to leak, overheat, emit smoke, burst and/or ignite. Metal objects such as wires, jewelry or hairpins may generate heat if they come into
contact with the battery.
• Do not discard the battery into fire or heat since this may cause the insulation to
melt down and may also damage the gas release vents and other safety features
possibly leading to chemical leakage, overheating, smoke emission, bursting
and/or ignition.
• Do not use or leave the battery near a heat source such as a fire or a heater (>
80°C). If the resin separators should become damaged due to overheating, shortcircuiting may occur inside the battery, possibly leading to chemical leakage, overheating, smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition of the battery.
• Do not immerse the battery in fluids, water or seawater and do not allow it to get
wet. Otherwise, the protective features inside the battery may be damaged and
abnormal chemical reactions may occur, possibly leading to leakage, overheating, smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition.
• Do not recharge the battery near fire or in extremely hot environments. Otherwise,
hot temperatures may trigger its built-in protective features, inhibiting recharging
or damaging these built-in protective features, causing it to be charged with an
excessive current. As a result, abnormal chemical reactions may occur internally,
possibly leading to leakage, overheating, smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition.
• To recharge the battery, use the battery charger specifically designed for the device and observe the recharging conditions specified by the maker of the charger.
A recharging operation under non-conforming conditions may cause the battery
to become overcharged, or charged with an excessive current. Abnormal chemical reactions may occur, possibly leading to electrolyte leakage, overheating,
smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition.
• Do not pierce the battery with pointed or other sharp objects. Do not strike it with
a hammer, or step on it. Otherwise, the battery may become damaged and deformed internal short-circuiting may occur, possibly leading to chemical leakage,
overheating, smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition.
• Do not strike or throw the battery. An impact may cause leakage, overheating,
smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition. Moreover, if the protective features inside become damaged, the resulting internally generated high current could lead
to abnormal chemical reactions, electrolyte leakage, overheating, smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition.
• Do not use an apparently damaged or deformed battery. Otherwise, electrolyte
leakage, overheating, smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition of the battery may
occur.
• Do not directly solder the battery. Otherwise, heat may melt down its insulation,
damage its gas release vents or other safety features possibly leading to leakage,
overheating, smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition.
• Do not reverse the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals. Otherwise, during recharging, the battery will be reverse-charged, abnormal chemical reactions may
occur, or excessively high current may flow during discharging possibly leading to
chemical leakage, overheating, smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition.
• The positive (+) and negative (-) terminals are arranged in a particular orientation.
Do not force the connection if you may not easily connect the battery terminals to
the battery charger or other equipment. Confirm that the terminals are correctly
oriented. Reversing the terminals will result in reverse charging, possibly leading
to electrolyte leakage, over heating, smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition of
the battery.
• Do not use the battery for other purposes other than those specified. Otherwise,
its guaranteed performance will be lost and/or its service life will be shortened.
Depending on the equipment in which the battery is used, excessively high current may flow through battery, possibly damaging it and leading to electrolyte
leakage, overheating, smoke emission, bursting and/or ignition.
• If the battery leaks, and the electrolyte reaches the eyes, do not rub them. Instead, rinse the eyes with clean running water and immediately seek medical
attention. Failure to do this may result in eye injury.
