3. Hazard Identification

Class Name: Not applicable for regulated class

Hazard: It may cause heat generation or electrolyte leakage if battery terminals contact with other metals. Electrolyte is flammable. In case of electrolyte leakage, move the battery from fire immediately.

Toxicity: Vapor generated from burning batteries, may make eyes, skin and throat irritate.

4. First Aid Measures

The product contains organic electrolyte. In case of electrolyte leakage from the battery, actions described below are required.

Eye contact: Flush the eyes with plenty of clean water for at least 15 minutes immediately, without rubbing, and call a doctor. If appropriate procedures are not taken, this may cause an eye irritation.

Skin contact: Wash the contact areas off immediately with plenty of water and soap.If appropriate procedures are not taken, this may cause sores on the skin.

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air immediately, and call a doctor.

5. Fire Fighting Measures

(1) Use specified extinguishers (gas, foam, powder) and extinguishing system under the Fire Defense Law.

(2) Since corrosive gas may be produced at the time of fire extinguishing, use an air inhalator when danger is predicted.

(3) Use a large amount of water as a supportive measure in order to get cooling effect if needed. (Indoor/outdoor fire hydrant)

(4) Carry away flammable materials immediately in case of fire.

(5) Move batteries to a safer place immediately in case of fire.

6. Accidental Release Measures

(1) Wipe off with dry cloth

(2) Keep away from fire

(3) Wear safety goggles, safety gloves as needed

7. Precautions for Safe Handling and Use

Storage: Store within the recommended limit of -20°C to 45°C (-4°F to 113°F), well-ventilated area. Do not expose to high temperature (60°C/140°F). Since short circuit can cause burn hazard or gas release, do not store with metal jewelry, metal covered tables, or metal belt.

Handling: Do not disassemble, remodel, or solder. Do not short + and - terminals with a metal.Do not open the battery.

Charging: Charge within the limits of 0°C to 45°C (32°F to 113°F) temperature. Charge with specified charger designed for this battery.

Discharging: Discharge within the limits of -20°C to 60°C (-4 °F to 140°F) temperature.

Disposal: Dispose in accordance with applicable federal, state and local regulations.

Caution: Fire, Explosion, and Severe Burn Hazard. Do not Crush, Disassemble, Heat Above 100°C/212°F, or Incinerate.

8. Exposure Controls/Personal protection (In case electrolyte is leaked from battery)

Acceptable concentration: Not specified in ACGIH.

Facilities: Provide appropriate ventilation such as local ventilation system in the storage.

Protective clothing: Gas mask for organic gases, safety goggle, safety glove.

9. Physical and chemical Properties

Appearance: Lithium ion polymer rechargeable cells.

10. Stability and Reactivity

External short-circuit, deformation by crush, high temperature (over 100°C) exposure of a battery cause generation of heat and ignition.

11. Toxicological Information

Acute toxicity: No information as a battery

Local effects: No information as a battery

12. Ecological Information

When exhausted battery is buried in the ground, corrosion may be caused on the outer case of battery and electrolyte may be oozed. There is no information on environmental influence.

13. Disposal considerations

When battery is disposed, isolate positive (+) and negative (-) terminals of the battery to avoid those terminals from touching each other. Batteries may be short-circuited when piled up or mixed with the other batteries in disorder. Dispose in accordance with applicable federal, state and local regulations

14. Transport information

(1) When a number of batteries are transported by ship, vehicle and railroad, avoid high temperature and dew condensation.

(2) Avoid transportation which may cause damage of package.

(3) Lithium ion batteries are not subject to dangerous goods regulation for the purpose of transportation by the International Maritime Dangerous Goods regulations(IMDG). For Lithium ion batteries, the Watt-hour rating is no more than 20Wh/cell and 100Wh/battery pack can be treated as “non-dangerous goods” by the United Nations Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods/Special Provision 188, provided that the products are prevented from being short-circuited with each other and are packaged in an appropriate condition which satisfies Packing Group II performance level.

(4) IATA (International Air Transport Association): Dangerous Goods Regulation Packing Instruction 965 (Lithium ion or lithium polymer cells and batteries without electronic equipment) Section II requirements apply to lithium ion cells with a Watt-hour rating not exceeding 20Wh and lithium ion batteries with a Watt-hour rating not exceeding 100Wh packed in quantities that within the allowance permitted in Section II, Table 965-II.

Table 965-II
