When using lithium batteries, you need to pay attention to the following aspects to ensure safety and extend battery life:

  1. Charging precautions
    Use the original charger: Try to use the original charger provided by the device manufacturer to ensure that the battery is charged at a safe voltage and current.
    Avoid overcharging: Long-term overcharging will cause the internal pressure of the battery to increase, which may cause the battery to swell, leak or even explode. Most devices have built-in protection circuits, but you still need to pay attention.
    Suitable temperature: The ambient temperature should not be too high or too low during charging. Charging at high temperatures will accelerate battery aging, and charging at low temperatures may result in insufficient charging.
    Timely power off: Try to disconnect the charger as soon as possible after fully charged to reduce the battery from being in a high power state for a long time.
  2. Discharge precautions
    Avoid over-discharge: Excessive discharge will cause irreversible damage to the battery and reduce the battery capacity. Try to avoid charging after the battery is completely exhausted.
    Reasonable use of equipment: When using battery-powered equipment, avoid long-term use in high or low temperature environments and keep the battery within a suitable operating temperature range.
  3. Storage precautions
    Keep the battery at 40%-60%: If the lithium battery is not used for a long time, it is best to keep the battery at 40%-60%. Storing it in a fully discharged or fully charged state will damage the battery.
    Storage environment: Store the battery in a cool and dry environment, avoid high temperature, high humidity and direct sunlight.
    Regular inspection and maintenance: The battery stored for a long time should be checked every 3-6 months, and the battery should be properly charged and discharged to maintain battery activity.
  4. Safety precautions
    Avoid short circuit: Do not directly contact the positive and negative poles of the battery, and avoid metal objects (such as keys, coins) from contacting the battery to cause a short circuit.
    Prevent physical damage: Avoid strong impact, squeezing or puncture of the battery. Physical damage may cause internal short circuit and fire.
    Properly dispose of used batteries: Used lithium batteries should be sent to designated recycling points for recycling and treatment, and should not be discarded at will to prevent environmental pollution and safety hazards.
  5. Equipment use precautions
    Avoid high-load operation: Long-term high-load operation will cause rapid discharge of the battery, increase heat generation, and may affect battery life and safety.
    Calibrate the battery regularly: Performing a full charge and discharge cycle at the right time will help calibrate the power display in the device to make it more accurate.
  6. Other precautions
    Check the battery status: Check the battery for abnormalities (such as deformation, leakage, odor, etc.) before use, and replace it in time if any problems are found.
    Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations: Follow the battery usage guidelines and recommended operations provided by the device manufacturer to ensure safety and battery life.
