Important safety instructions
DANGER Rechargeable Li-ion Battery (Optional)
Carefully observe the following precautions for handling, use, and disposal of the rechargeable Li-ion battery (hereafter referred to as “rechargeable battery”). If these precautions are not followed, overheating, leaking, or cracks in the battery may result in an electrical short, explosion, smoke, fire, electrical shock, injury to yourself or others, or damage to the product or other property.
Use the rechargeable battery only for its intended purpose. The P-touch labeling system and rechargeable battery are designed to be used together exclusively. DO NOT insert the rechargeable battery into a different P-touch labeling system, or a different rechargeable battery into your P-touch labeling system, otherwise a fire or other damage may occur.
To charge the rechargeable battery, insert it into the P-touch labeling system, and then use the AC adapter designed specifically for this P-touch labeling system.
DO NOT charge the rechargeable battery near a fire, flame, in direct sunlight, or near any other heat source. This could activate the protection circuitry, which is designed to prevent danger from high heat. Activation of the protection circuitry could cause charging to stop, charging to occur with excessive current/voltage if the protection circuitry fails, or an abnormal chemical reaction within the battery.
When charging the rechargeable battery, use only the battery charger designed specifically for your rechargeable battery.
DO NOT allow wires or other metal objects to come into contact with the terminals of the rechargeable battery. DO NOT carry or store the rechargeable battery with metal objects, such as wires, necklaces, or hairpins. This could cause an electrical short, and metal objects such as wires, necklaces, or hairpins to overheat, risking fire or other damage.
DO NOT use or leave the rechargeable battery near fire, heaters, or other high-temperature (above 176 F/80 C) locations.
DO NOT allow the rechargeable battery to come into contact with or to be immersed in water.
DO NOT use or leave the rechargeable battery in corrosive environments, such as areas where salty air, salt water, acids, alkalis, corrosive gases, chemicals, or any corrosive liquid is present.
DO NOT use the rechargeable battery if it is damaged, deformed, or leaking.
DO NOT directly solder any connections to the rechargeable battery. This could cause internal insulation to melt, gas to be emitted, or safety mechanisms to fail.
DO NOT use the rechargeable battery with the polarity (+) (-) reversed. Always check the polarity (+) (-) of the rechargeable battery before inserting it, and do not try to force the rechargeable battery into the P-touch labeling system. Charging the rechargeable battery with the polarity reversed could cause an abnormal chemical reaction within the rechargeable battery or abnormal current flow during discharge.
DO NOT directly connect the rechargeable battery to a household electrical supply other than with the AC adapter specifically designed for your P-touch labeling system.
4 DANGER Rechargeable Li-ion Battery (Optional) (Continued)

If the electrolyte comes into contact with your skin or clothing, immediately rinse them with water.
DO NOT put the rechargeable battery, or a P-touch labeling system with the rechargeable battery installed, into a microwave oven or high-pressure container.
DO NOT disassemble, modify, or attempt to repair the rechargeable battery.
DO NOT dispose of the rechargeable battery in fire or intentionally overheat. This could cause the internal insulation to melt, gas to be emitted, or safety mechanisms to fail. Additionally, the electrolyte solution could catch fire.
DO NOT puncture the rechargeable battery with any objects, subject it to severe shocks, or throw it. Damage to the rechargeable battery’s protection circuit could cause the rechargeable battery to charge or discharge at an abnormal current/voltage or cause an abnormal chemical reaction within the rechargeable battery.
DO NOT leave a drained rechargeable battery in the P-touch labeling system for a long period of time. This could shorten the life of the rechargeable battery or lead to an electrical short.
DO NOT incinerate the rechargeable battery or dispose of it with household waste.
If the P-touch labeling system can only be used for a short period of time, even though the rechargeable battery is fully charged, the rechargeable battery may have reached the end of its service life. Replace the rechargeable battery with a new one. Use only the rechargeable battery specifically designed for your P-touch labeling system as a replacement. When removing and replacing the rechargeable battery, cover the terminals of the old rechargeable battery with tape to avoid creating a short in the battery, and ensure correct polarity (+) (-) of the new rechargeable battery before inserting it into the P-touch labeling system.
