BATTERY SAFETY

At The Liquid Factory, we take battery safety seriously so here are a few important things to remember.

 

MAKE USE OF THE ON/OFF FEATURE WHEN YOUR DEVICE IS NOT IN USE AND REMOVE THE BATTERIES IF YOUR PRODUCT / DEVICE IS BEING STORED FOR LONG PERIODS
ALWAYS CARRY AND STORE BATTERIES IN NON-CONDUCTIVE CONTAINERS AND NEVER WITH METAL / METALIC OBJECTS SUCH AS LOOSE CHANGE OR KEYS
DO NOT SHORT BATTERIES! - INTENTIONALLY OR ACCIDENTLY CONNECTING THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE END OF THE CELL
ALWAYS USE THE CHARGER SUPPLIED WITH YOUR PRODUCT / DEVICE OR A BATTERY CHARGER DESIGNED FOR THE CELLS YOU ARE CHARGING
NEVER COMPLETELY DISCHARGE BATTERIES - THE CUT OFF FOR MOST CELLS IS 2.8V OR 2.5V
NEVER SUBMERGE BATTERIES IN WATER OR EXPOSE TO EXTREMES OF TEMPERATURE OR TEMPERATURE FLUCTUATION
PERIODICALLY INSPECT YOUR BATTERIES FOR DAMAGE TO THE WRAP AND INSULATOR THAT COULD LEAD TO A DIRECT SHORT
ALWAYS DISPOSE OF END OF LIFE BATTERIES AT YOUR LOCAL WEEE RECYCLING CENTRE OR COLLECTION POINT
