Battery Use, Safety and Terms
For the purpose of this document Li-Ion (lithium Ion and Lithium Ion Phosphate), Lipo (Lithium Polymer), NiXX (Nicked Cadmium and Nickel Metal hydride), Lead Acid and any other chemistry of batteries will be described as “batteries”.
Handling and Storage
Never alter, puncture or impact batteries and related components.
Never directly connect the terminal to metal (or conductive) objects. This will cause short circuit to the batteries, causing large battery discharge, heat, smoke and or fire.
Never store loose batteries together. This can cause short circuit across the battery terminals which will result in battery discharge, high heat and or fire.
Never expose batteries to high temperatures or direct sunlight.
Always verify battery voltage and per cell battery voltage (for lithium packs) if the battery has been in storage for long periods of time.
Always charge batteries in fireproof, non-conductive, approved fire proof charge bag.
For best results store batteries between 50-75 percent of the battery capacity. Or alternatively follow the manufacturer specifications if they have different preferred storage instructions.
Before First Charge
Examine the battery closely for any physical defects, loose wires or packaging, or any other irregularity which may cause short circuit.
Verify that the positive terminal of the battery and the negative terminal of the battery are correctly connected to the chargers positive and negative terminal and that this is not the wrong way around. Use a voltmeter if unsure.
Check the voltage of the battery to make sure that the battery voltage is the same as listed by manufacturer.
Always refer to your chargers instruction manual for correct charging process best suited for your chosen battery. In addition to your chargers instructions, the below guideline must be followed at all times.
Always make certain that the charger and the charger setting is suitable for your type of battery chemistry.
When charging lithium based batteries or battery packs, ensure balance mode is selected at all times.
Always charge batteries in an open area away from any flammable liquids, chemicals or material.
Never charge any battery while it is inside a model or device.
Never charge a battery that is too hot to touch (above 60-80 Degrees Celsius). Do not handle the battery until it has cooled down.
Always ensure your battery charger is set to the correct cell count, voltage and current suitable for the battery.
Always check the battery voltage before charging to ensure that the battery voltage is above the safe voltage level and that the battery is still in normal condition from last use.
Never charge batteries past the capacity provided by the battery manufacturer and specified on battery label.
If at any time the batteries become damaged, hot, begin to swell or start displaying any other out of the ordinary characteristics, immediately stop using the battery (whether in use or in charge). Quickly disconnect battery from all components, model, charger and or charger board. Place the batteries in a safe open area away from any flammable objects in an approved fireproof safety bag.
Do not handle the battery, attempt to use the battery, attempt to recharge the battery or ship the battery. Failure to follow this can result in personal or property damage.
Keep batteries away from children. Children using batteries in a model or a device must always be supervised by an adult.
Discharging and Using Battery
Never discharge any type of battery at higher current than rated on the battery label or specified by the battery manufacturer.
Never allow for the battery temperature to exceed the safe temperature of the battery as specified by the manufacturer.
Never discharge any battery to a lower voltage that is considered safe and suitable to the particular chemistry of the battery or as specified by the manufacturer. This is particularly important in delicate Lithium based hobby and high powered LED torch batteries.
When using in radio control hobby applications and in the event of a crash, examine the battery very carefully for any defects before re-using and follow previous safety precautions of storage and handling of the batteries.
If the internal contents of the battery make contact with your skin, wash the affected area(s) with water and soap immediately. If the content come in contact with your eye(s), flush them with generous amounts of water for 15 minutes and seek immediate medical attention.
