Safety Precautions and Disposal Methods Of Polymer Batteries

Lithium polymer battery is a new lithium-based battery. The lithium-polymer was developed as a cheaper and more stable version of the lithium-ion cell. However, when using such lithium-polymer batteries, certain safety precautions must be observed. They are also known as lipo cells.

LiFePO4 Deep Cycle Batteries


• Do not allow lithium batteries to charge or discharge on or near flammable materials, including paper, plastic, vinyl, carpet, leather, wood, in RC models, or large cars.

• Do not put packages in clothing pockets.

• Do not allow the lithium battery to come into contact with moisture or water.

• Never store batteries near open flames or heaters.

• Never assemble lithium batteries or pre-assembled packages with other lithium cells/packages. Only qualified battery installers may install or modify LiPo batteries.

• Do not puncture LiPo cells, especially without metal objects such as screwdrivers, T-pins, or hobby knives.

•Always ensure adequate ventilation around LiPo batteries during charging, discharging, and storage. If the battery is too hot, immediately place it in a fireproof place to cool.

• Always store the LiPo cell/packaging in a safe place out of reach of children.

• ALWAYS ensure that metal objects such as watches, bracelets, or rings are kept away from your hands when handling lithium polymer batteries. Accidental contact between the battery terminals and these objects can cause a short circuit and possible serious injury.
