SECTION II HAZARDOUS INGREDIENTS
IMPORTANT NOTE: The battery pack uses max forty-eight
IMA6 Lithium ion rechargeable batteries
and control circuit. All batteries are connected in series.
The battery should not be opened, burned, or otherwise compromised since
the following ingredients
contained within the product could be harmful if exposed or misused.
Under normal operation, there is
no expected exposure to the following components.
Cathode: Lithium Manganese Oxide (Li Mn Ni Co O)
Polyvinylidene Fluoride (binder)
Graphite (conductive material}
Carbon Black (conductive material)
Anode: Carbon (active material)
Polyvinylidene Fluoride (binder)
Electrolyte: Organic Solvent (non-aqueous liquid)
Others: Heavy metals such as Mercury, Cadmium, Lead, and Chromium are
in the cell.
SECTION III FIRE HAZARD DATA
If module catches on fire, take the following measures:
Use self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA)
Any surrounding combustible items should be removed immediately
Use class D fire extinguishing media.
Dry Chemical (ABC) or Carbon dioxide (C02) can be used when class D is
not available. Water should be used as a last resort only.
Move to an open ventilated area immediately
SECTION IV HEALTH HAZARD DATA
Under normal condition of use, these chemicals are
contained in sealed cells. Risk of exposure occurs only
if the cells are mechanically abused or otherwise compromised.
Inhalation: Contents of an opened cell can cause
respiratory irritation. Provide fresh air and seek medical attention
Skin contact: Contents of an opened cell can cause skin irritation.
Wash skin with soap and water.
Eye contact: Contents of an opened ce11 can cause eye irritation.
Immediately flush eyes thoroughly with water for at least 15 minutes.
Seek medical attention.
SECTION V PRECAUTIONS FOR HANDLING AND USE
Storage: Store in cool, well-ventilated area. Do not
expose to high temperature (60°C-140° F)
or any ignition sources.
Batteries should be stored in an incombustible
Batteries should be stored and handled in a way to avoid puncture,
crushing, severe jolt, vibration, moisture/water, or other forms of
stress. Since short circuit can cause burn hazard, do not store with
metal plate, metal bar, metal covered materials.
When storing, cover battery terminals with insulating caps.
Handling: Do not disassemble or remodel. Do not short +
and - terminals with metal. Do not open the
Charging: Charge within the limits of 0°C and 45°C.
Charge with specified charger designed
for this battery. Charge by the charge voltage below 196.8V.
Discharging: Discharge within the limits of -20°C and
Disposal: Do not dispose in fire or incinerate. If
disposal of module is necessary, dispose of according to
federal, state, and local environmental regulations. Contact appropriate
Puncture or Crush: If electrolyte leaks from the module,
take the following measures:
Wear eye protection, rubber gloves, and respiratory
protection when handling.
Clean up any electrolyte with dry towel and dispose of according to
federal, state, and local environmental regulations.
Do not expose to ignition source.
If the module is punctured or crushed, it should be handled with
electrically insulated gloves.
