It is essential that users of lithium modules and cells understand and adhere to Safe Handling Procedures. 

Storage Guidelines for Lithium Cells

  • Care should be taken to ensure batteries are not exposed to a flammable environment.

  • Because batteries can release toxic material if crushed or broken open, large quantities should be stored in a remote area.

  • Batteries should be stored in a secure, cool, well ventilated, dry environment. 

  • Temperatures should be kept below 25oC.

  • To prevent performance problems, DO NOT STORE BATTERIES IN AREAS RECEIVING DIRECT SUNLIGHT.

  • Batteries should be kept in original shipping containers if possible.  Do not store loosely.

  • Storage areas should be clearly identified as a Lithium Battery storage area.  The storage area should have access to a Class D fire extinguisher or other extinguisher designed for metallic fires..
