As a lithium polymer battery, the Solo Smart Battery requires specific handling practices to ensure safe operation and prevent accidents:
If you notice any abnormal features such as damage to the exterior shell, swelling, deformation of the battery, abnormal smell, leakage, or other unexpected behavior, do not use the battery! These can be signs of serious damage that can cause the battery to catch fire or explode. In this case, do not use the battery again. Disconnect the battery, place the battery in a safe area outside of any buildings orvehicles and away from fire and flammable materials to prevent a hazard in case of fire or explosion.
For long-term storage, the battery will last longer if you store it between 64-82° F, between 45-85% relative humidity, and with 50% charge (rather than empty). Be sure to store the battery where it won't be exposed to extreme temperatures or direct sunlight.
