Radio Controlled Shop Ireland Lithium Polymer Battery Safety Warnings:
By purchasing any Lipo battery, the buyer assumes all risks associated with lithium batteries. We assume no liability for failure to comply with these warnings and safety guidelines. Lithium Polymer batteries are volatile and can be very dangerous if mis-handled, stored, charged or discharged incorrectly. Failure to read and follow these instructions may result in fire, personal injury, and damage to property.
Store below 26°C and above 4°C whenever possible (not in direct sunlight). Never store or charged a battery pack inside your car in extreme temperatures (37°C and above), since extreme temperature could cause a fire. Use caution to avoid puncturing of the cells as puncturing of any cells may cause a fire.
If at any time you witness a battery starting to balloon or swell up, discontinue the charging or discharging process immediately. Disconnect the battery and observe it in a safe place for approximately 15 minutes. Dispose of the pack following the instructions below. Continuing to use a battery that has begun to swell may result in a fire.
Do not attempt to solder connectors to Lithium Polymer batteries unless you have sufficient experience. Wire lead shorts can cause fires. If you accidentally short the wires, the battery must be placed in a safe area for observation for approximately 15 minutes. Additionally, if a short occurs and contact is made with metal (such as rings on your hand), severe injuries may occur due to the conductibility of electric current.
If, for any reason, you need to cut the terminal wires, it will be necessary to cut each wire separately, ensuring the wires do not touch each other, or a short may occur potentially causing a fire.
To solder a connector, remove any protective insulation on the red wire and solder to the positive terminal of a connector then remove any protective insulation on the black wire and solder to the negative terminal of the connector. Be careful not to short the wire lead. If you accidentally cause the battery to short, place it in a safe open space and observe the
battery for approximately 15 minutes. A battery may swell or even possibly catch fire after a short time.
Do not charge battery packs in series or parallel. Charge each battery pack individually. Failure to do so may result in incorrect battery recognition and charging functions. Overcharging may occur and a fire may be the result. You must check the pack voltage before each charging session. Do not attempt to charge any pack if the voltage per cell is less than 3.2 V.
Deep discharge below 3.2V per cell can dramatically deteriorate battery performance and will likely cause the battery pack to become defective and un-usable.
Batteries that lose 20% of their capacity must be removed from service and disposed of properly. For example, a 2000mah battery that behaves as if it is only a 1600mah battery is unsuitable for service. Dispose of it using the instructions below...
Lithium Polymer disposal instructions:
In order to be eligible for warranty exchange, the user must follow the initial setup instructions above, and the pack must be registered with Radio Controlled Shop Ireland.
The above information are some guidelines on how to correctly use your lipo batteries at all times, it is ultimately the customers responsibility to fully inform themselves on how to use Lipo batteries.
