Transport, Use & Storage
ALWAYS TRANSPORT AND STORE YOUR LI-ION BATTERY AS INSTRUCTED IN THE OWNER'S MANUAL.
Keep away from contact with metal objects such as keys, coins, screws and nails, or liquids, which present a safety hazard.
Follow manufacturer guidelines for safe storage and operating temperatures.
Stop using your battery if it begins to overheat or is damaged, dropped, or modified. For a battery with flame or a battery that is smoking, smoldering, or melting, immediate action is required. After unplugging the battery charger, pour copious amounts of water on the battery and then submerge the battery (including any attached tool or charger) in a sturdy container filled with water. Avoid direct contact with the battery (use a long-handled shovel or a similar implement) and use appropriate personal protective equipment to protect your face, hands and body. If water is not available, dirt, sand or a conventional ABC extinguisher may be used in an attempt to smother and cool the battery (including any attached tool or charger) until water is available.
