Lithium Battery Informations 🔋
Lithium Battery Informations and Warnings.
THIS IS AN AUTOMATIC TRANSLATION
- Avoid deep discharge - as a rule, do not use the last 10% of the battery if it can be avoided and always immediately recharge to at least 40-80%.
- Storage in a dry environment and protection from direct permanent sunlight and other hot springs
- If possible, disconnect the battery from the device if it is stored for a longer period of time and check the charging status sporadically! Some and especially older batteries can often no longer maintain their state of charge for longer periods and have to be recharged every 1-2 weeks - not so with high-quality new cell networks; here the tension often remains stable for 1-2 years.
Lithium batteries are considered as very safe today and can only be marketed as tested, electronically monitored (BMS = battery management system) and certified cells & batteries (UN 38.3 test), even though mechanical shifts (soldering or cable breakage by massive shocks), faulty or incorrect chargers or incorrect treatment my lead to smoldering heat developement (especially during charging).Therefore, we following communicate the most important handling requirements.
Lithium batteries are sensitive technical power sources with high energy density and hazardous substances. Therefore, lithium batteries are dangerous goods and may be transported in the commercial area only with dangerous goods declaration. Defective and damaged lithium batteries may only be transported with special transports.
Treat lithium battery as carefully as a vase or a petrol tank; Protect the battery from falls and external influences. SHOULD THE BATTERY APPEARANCE OR CASE DAMAGE, the battery must be inspected by the specialist dealer.
ONLY STORE & CHARGE THE BATTERY AT NORMAL TEMPERATURES!
Ideal storage at 15 degrees; Staked out from the vehicle and only 50 - 80% loaded on long storage (a full Lithimbattery is under stress and therefore chemistry would sooner age).
If the battery can not be disconnected from the vehicle, it must be monitored and recharged if necessary, if the charging level drops over the weeks.
AVOID EXTREME TEMPERATURES! During the trip, a battery heats itself, but if a battery is frozen or hot, then the performance drastically decreases. Therefore, the batteries should be taken out and acclimatized at extreme outside temperatures before and after use.
Do not store or park batteries below 40% charge level for a longer period of time in sub-zero temperatures! Allow the vehicle to acclimatise before charging at temperatures above zero.
