When cleaning the batteries, use soft cloth only. Use of organic solvents such as gasoline or thinner, and application or adherence of oil to the batteries must be avoided. Do not clean the batteries using cloth that contains organic solvents or oil. Also contact with soft polyvinyl chloride or the like must be avoided.
When organic solvent, oil or soft polyvinyl chloride contacts the batteries, the container and cover may be cracked, softened or deformed.
Do not short batteries.
The batteries may generate inflammable gas. Shorting may cause explosion or fire.
Do not attempt to disassemble the batteries. Avoid contact with sulfuric acid leaked from the broken batteries.
If the batteries are disassembled (or destroyed), sulfuric acid in the batteries may flow out and injure skin or human body.
If eyes contact the sulfuric acid, wash eyes with a lot of clean water, and consult a physician immediately.
Never dispose of the batteries in fire.
The batteries may explode if put into the fire.
Avoid mixed usage of the batteries differing in capacity, type, manufacturer or history of use (charge /discharge operation).
It may damage the batteries and the equipment due to the difference in characteristics.
Do not use the batteries for applications other than those specified in the documentation.
In medical equipment, a back-up system other than the main battery should be built in, to provide power in the event that the main power or battery fails to work.
When designing the charger, take battery damage modes into consideration, and provide protection against short-circuits, and /or protection for the charger output.
When the batteries reach the end of their useful life, discharge time becomes noticeably shorter, and finally the batteries lose their available power. This is typically due to internal shorting of the plates, and /or drying out of the electrolyte.
Please contact CooPower for additional assistance, or for information not described in documents or specifications.
When the batteries are used in vibration conditions, such as motor cycles, engine driven lawnmowers etc., a proper cushion for protecting them from vibration should be prepared. Additionally the batteries should be mounted in an upright position.
* Note: If the batteries are mounted in a side down position and/or upside down position, internal short circuits, internal breaks and /or electrolyte leakage might occurred.
