BatterySafe™ Manual

Lithium-Ion batteries pose catastrophic risk when damaged, defective, or overheated, potentially leading to prolonged fire over 2,000° F.  For this reason, Lithium-Ion batteries are considered hazardous materials by all national, state, local and international authorities; and, have stringent storage and transportation requirements. 

 The volatility of a Lithium-Ion battery is impacted by many variables, including battery age, battery damage, heat, percentage of charge, battery chemistry,quality. 

Transport of Lithium-Ion batteries is strictly regulated by various domestic and international road, rail, and air authorities.  Before shipping a Lithium-Ion battery, review the links in the Resource Center.
