Battery Safety

Recommended batteries are Energizer Ultimate Lithium L91 AA, using the chemical system Lithium-Iron Disul de. They are not designed for recharge. Battery should not be opened or burned. Exposure to the ingredients contained within or their combustion products could be harmful. Dispose in accordance with all applicable federal, state and local regulations. Battery contains Perchlorate Material – special handling may apply. For more information visit dtsc.ca.gov/hazardouswaste/perchlorate

WHAT TO DO WITH BATTERIES IF EXPOSED TO A FIRE

In case of re where lithium batteries are present, apply a smothering agent such as METL-X, sand, dry ground dolomite, or soda ash, or ood the area with water. A smothering agent will extinguish burning lithium batteries. Water may not extinguish burning batteries but will cool the adjacent batteries and control the spread of re. Burning batteries will burn themselves out. Virtually all res involving lithium batteries can be controlled with water. When water is used, however, hydrogen gas may evolve. In a con ned space, hydrogen gas can form an explosive mixture. In this situation, smothering agents are recommended.

Firefighters should wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Burning lithium-iron disulfide batteries produce hydrogen sulfide gas, sulfur dioxide gas, toxic and corrosive lithium hydroxide fumes.

⚠️ WARNING (1) keep away from small children. If swallowed, promptly see doctor; have doctor phone (202) 625-3333 collect. (2) Fire, explosion, burn hazard. Do not open battery, dispose of in re, heat above 212°F / 100°C, expose contents to water, recharge, put in backwards, mix with used or other battery types-may explode or leak + cause personal injury
