Suitable Extinguishing Media:

5.2.  Special Hazards Arising From the Substance or Mixture
Fire Hazard: In case of fire where lithium batteries are present, flood area
water or smother with a Class D fire extinguishant appropriate for lithium
such as Lith-X. Water may not extinguish burning batteries but will cool the    
adjacent batteries and control the spread of fire. Burning batteries will burn  
themselves out. Virtually all fires involving lithium batteries can be
by flooding with water. However, the contents of the battery will react with
and form hydrogen gas. In a confined space, hydrogen gas can form an explosive  
mixture. In this situation, smothering agents are recommended. A smothering
will extinguish burning lithium batteries.                                      
Emergency Responders should wear self-contained breathing apparatus. Burning    
lithium manganese dioxide batteries produce toxic and corrosive lithium
Explosion Hazard:

6.2.  Environmental Precautions

6.3.  Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up
For Containment: 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
safety release vents on batteries. Encapsulation of batteries will not allow
venting and can cause high pressure rupture.                                    
Methods for Cleaning Up: To cleanup leaking batteries:                          
Ventilation Requirements: Room ventilation may be required in areas where there 
are open or leaking batteries. 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.
materials should be collected in a leak-proof container.                        

6.4.  Reference to Other Sections
See heading  8, Exposure Controls and Personal Protection.                      

SECTION 7: HANDLING AND STORAGE                                                 

7.1.  Precautions for Safe Handling
Additional Hazards When Processed: Accidental short circuit for a few seconds
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
open. Sources of short circuits include jumbled batteries in bulk containers,   
metal jewelry, metal covered tables or metal belts used for assembly of
into devices. Damaging a lithium battery may result in an internal short
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 circuit.  
Charging: This battery is manufactured in a charged state. It is not designed
recharging. Recharging can cause battery leakage or, in some cases, high
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     
(1) KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. Swallowing may lead to serious injury or
in as little as 2 hours due to chemical burns and potential perforation of the  
esophagus. Immediately see doctor; have doctor phone (202) 625-3333. Keep in    
original package until ready to use. Dispose of used batteries immediately.     
Hygiene Measures:                                                               

7.2.  Conditions for Safe Storage, Including Any Incompatibilities
Technical Measures:                                                             
Storage Conditions: Store in a cool, well ventilated area. Elevated temperatures
can result in shortened battery life. In locations that handle large quantities
lithium batteries, such as warehouses, lithium batteries should be isolated from
unnecessary combustibles.
