First-aid Measures General:                                                       
First-aid Measures After Inhalation: Avoid inhaling any vented gases. Remove to   
fresh air immediately. If breathing is difficult, seek emergency medical          
First-aid Measures After Skin Contact: Exposure to materials from a ruptured or   
otherwise damaged cell or battery may cause skin irritation. Flush immediately    
with water and wash affected area with soap and water.                            
First-aid Measures After Eye Contact: Exposure to materials from a ruptured or    
otherwise damaged cell or battery may cause eye irritation. Flush immediately with
copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes; consult a physician immediately.
First-aid Measures After Ingestion: Consult a physician or local poison control   
center immediately.

SECTION 5: FIRE-FIGHTING MEASURES                                                 

5.1.  Extinguishing Media
Suitable Extinguishing Media: Copious amounts of cold water or water-based foam   
may be used to cool burning cells or batteries. Do not use warm or hot water. A   
carbon dioxide (CO2) extinguisher is also effective. For fires involving exposed, 
raw lithium metal (characterized by deep red flames), use only metal (Class D)    
fire extinguishers.                                                               
Unsuitable Extinguishing Media:                                                   

5.2.  Special Hazards Arising From the Substance or Mixture
Fire Hazard: Cells or batteries that are damaged, opened or exposed to excessive  
heat/fire may flame or leak potentially hazardous organic vapors.                 
Explosion Hazard:                                                                 

5.3.  Advice for Firefighters
Precautionary Measures Fire:                                                      
Firefighting Instructions: Use a positive pressure self-contained breathing       
apparatus (SCBA) if cells or batteries are involved in a fire. Full fire fighting 
protective clothing is necessary. During water application, caution is advised as 
burning pieces of flammable particles may be ejected from the fire.               
Protection During Firefighting:                                                   

SECTION 6: ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES                                            

6.1.  Personal Precautions, Protective Equipment and Emergency Procedures
General Measures: In the event a cell or battery is crushed; releasing its        
contents, rubber gloves must be used to handle all battery components. Avoid      
inhalation of any vapors that may be emitted. Damaged batteries that are not hot  
or burning should be placed in a sealed plastic bag or container.                 

6.1.1.      For Non-emergency Personnel
Protective Equipment:                                                             
Emergency Procedures:                                                             

6.1.2.      For Emergency Responders
Protective Equipment:                                                             
Emergency Procedures:

SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE                                                   

7.1.  Precautions for Safe Handling
Additional Hazards When Processed: Batteries are not designed to be recharged.    
Charging a primary cell or battery may result in electrolyte leakage and/or cause 
the cell or battery to flame. Never disassemble a battery or bypass any safety    
device. More than a momentary short circuit will generally reduce the battery     
service life. Batteries with fuses will no longer be functional after being       
shorted. Extended short-circuiting creates high temperatures in the cell. High    
temperatures can cause burns in skin or cause the cell to flame. Avoid reversing  
battery polarity within the battery assembly. To do so may cause cell to flame or 
to leak.                                                                          
Hygiene Measures:                                                                 

7.2.  Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities
Technical Measures:                                                               
Storage Conditions: Batteries should be separated from other materials and stored 
in a non-combustible, well ventilated structure with sufficient clearance between 
walls and battery stacks. Do not place batteries near heating equipment, nor      
expose to direct sunlight for long periods. Do not store batteries above 60ºC     
(140ºF) or below -40ºC (-40ºF). Store batteries in a cool (below 25ºC (77ºF)), dry
area that is subject to little temperature change. Elevated temperatures can      
result in reduced battery service life. Battery exposure to temperatures in excess
of 130ºC (266ºF) will result in the battery venting flammable liquid and gases. Do
not store batteries in a manner that allows terminals to short circuit.
