Battery Safety

Some of the guidelines you should follow are:

  • Never leave a battery on charge overnight
  • If using external batteries (18650 or other) then only use an external bay charger. If you're using an internal battery make sure you use a 1Amp Plug
  • Iphone & Ipad chargers or other mobile phone chargers should NEVER be used, as the output of these chargers is far too high and could cause a malfunction of the charging device, and in turn, your battery. This may cause a short in the battery which could leade to a fire and even possibly an explosion of the battery
  • Think about where you plug in your charger. Behind curtains, in tv cabinets or places where there is a lack of ventilation is not recommended
  • Never expose a lithium battery to extreme heat of water
  • If your battery looks like it is deformed or generally changing shape, or the top and bottom caps look to be in a worn state, please stop using the battery immediately and seek further advice.  Always dispose of worn batteries at your local recycling centre
  • Always make sure that the battery wrap is not split or damaged as the external shell of the battery is negative and could cause shorting issues
  • Always make sure your charger is the correct charger

  • Always buy from trusted sources

  • Always remove your battery once charged

  • Test your smoke alarm regularly (IT MAY SAVE YOUR LIFE)
