                           |adjacent batteries and control the spread of  
                           |fire. Burning batteries will burn themselves  
                           |out. Virtually all fires involving lithium

                           |water. However, the contents of the battery   
                           |will react with water and form hydrogen gas.

Methods for Cleaning Up                                                   
Notes: To cleanup leaking batteries: Ventilation Requirements: Room       
ventilation may be required in areas where there are open or leaking      
Respiratory Protection: Avoid exposure to electrolyte fumes from open or  
leaking batteries.                                                        
Eye Protection: Wear safety glasses with side shields if handling an open 
or leaking battery.                                                       
Gloves: Use neoprene or natural rubber gloves if handling an open or      
leaking battery. Battery materials should be collected in a leak-proof    
7.  HANDLING AND STORAGE                                                  
Handling: Handling: Accidental short circuit for a few seconds will not   
seriously affect the battery. Prolonged short circuit will cause the      
battery to lose energy, generate significant heat and can cause the safety
release vent to open. Sources of short circuits include jumbled batteries 
in bulk containers, metal jewelry, metal covered tables or metal belts    
used for assembly of batteries into devices. Damaging a lithium battery   
may result in an internal short circuit. The contents of an open battery, 
including a vented battery, when exposed to water, may result in a fire   
and/or explosion. Crushed or damaged batteries may result in a fire. If   
soldering or welding to the battery is required, consult your Energizer   
representative for proper precautions to prevent seal damage or short     
Charging: This battery is manufactured in a charged state. It is not      
designed for recharging. Recharging can cause battery leakage or, in some 
cases, high pressure rupture. Inadvertent charging can occur if a battery 
is installed backwards.                                                   
Labeling: If the Energizer label or package warnings are not visible, it  
is important to provide a package and/or device label stating: WARNING:   
Battery can explode or leak and cause burns if installed backwards,       
disassembled, charged, or exposed to water, fire or high temperature.     
Where accidental ingestion of small batteries is possible, the label      
should include:                                                           
WARNING: KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Swallowing may lead to serious    
injury or death in as littile as 2 hours due to chemical burns and        
potential perforation of the esophagus. Immediately see doctor phone (202)
625-3333. keep in original package until ready to use. Dispose of used    
batteries immediately.                                                    
Storage: Store in a cool, well ventilated area. Elevated temperatures can 
result in shortened battery life. In locations that handle large          
quantities of lithium batteries, such as warehouses, lithium batteries    
should be isolated from unnecessary combustibles.                         
Mechanical Containment: If potting or sealing the battery in an airtight  
or watertight container is required, consult your Energizer Battery       
Manufacturing, Inc. representative for precautionary suggestions. Do not  
obstruct safety release vents on batteries. Encapsulation of batteries    
will not allow cell venting and can cause high pressure rupture.

14.  TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION                                           
In general, all batteries in all forms of transportation (ground, air, or 
ocean) must be packaged in a safe and responsible manner. Regulatory      
concerns from all agencies for safe packaging require that batteries be   
packaged in a manner that prevents short circuits and be contained in     
"strong outer packaging" that prevents spillage of contents. All original 
packaging for Energizer lithium batteries are compliant with these        
regulatory concerns. Energizer lithium manganese dioxide batteries are    
exempt from the classification as dangerous goods as they meet the        
requirements of the special provisions listed below. (Essentially, they   
are properly packaged and labeled, contain less than 1 gram of lithium and
pass the tests defined in UN model regulation section 38.3).
