Guidelines for safe battery usage

This notebook uses a Lithium battery. Do not use it in a humid, wet or 
corrosive environment. Do not put, store or leave your product in or 
near a heat source, in a high temperature location, in strong direct 
sunlight, in a microwave oven or in a pressurized container, and do 
not expose it to temperatures over 60

°

 C (140

°

 F).

Failure to follow these guidelines may cause the battery to leak acid, 
become hot, explode or ignite and cause injury and/or damage. Do 
not pierce, open or disassemble the battery. If the battery leaks and 
you come into contact with the leaked fluids, rinse thoroughly with 
water and seek medical attention immediately. For safety reasons, 
and to prolong the lifetime of the battery, charging will not occur at 
temperatures below 0

°

 C (32

°

 F) or above 40

°

 C (104

°

 F).

The full performance of a new battery is achieved only after two or 
three complete charge and discharge cycles. The battery can be 
charged and discharged hundreds of times, but it will eventually wear 
out. When the operation time becomes noticeably shorter than 
normal, buy a new battery. Use only the approved batteries, and 
recharge your battery only with the approved chargers designated for 
this device.
Use the battery only for its intended purpose. Never use any charger 
or battery that is damaged. Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental 
short-circuiting can occur when a metallic object such as a coin, clip or 
pen causes direct connection of the positive (+) and negative (-) 
terminals of the battery. (These look like metal strips on the battery.) 
This might happen, for example, when you carry a spare battery in 

Warning

Batteries may explode if not handled properly. Do not disassemble or 
dispose of them in fire.

 

Do not tamper with batteries. Keep them away from children.

 

Follow local regulations when disposing of used batteries.

Important

Replace the battery with the same type as that which came bundled with 
your product. Use of another battery may present a risk of fire or 
explosion.
