- Do not allow the battery to come in contact with moisture, water, corrosive environment, or any kind of liquid as it may cause a short circuit or chemical deterioration, possibly resulting in the battery catching on fire, and may lead to an explosion. Failing to this point, dispose the battery as described in the Battery Disposal section below or contact Flyability for further assistance.
- Never use or charge the battery if it presents any sign of damage, leakage, swelling, or other abnormal phenomena. Damage can be but not limited to puncture, deformation, damage to the cords, or exposed conductive material.
- Never use or charge a battery after being involved in an aircraft incident which caused damages to the battery, its connector or its enclosure.
- Never use or charge an over-discharged battery being a battery voltage reaching 8V at anytime of the aircraft operation,
- The battery should be used in temperature from 10ºC to 50ºC.
- If the usage of the aircraft is required in temperature from 0ºC to 10ºC, the battery shall be heated up to be in temperatures above 10ºC using a battery heating bag provided by Flyability. Use of battery below 0ºC can lead to permanent damage. Contact Flyability for further assistance.
- Use of the battery in temperatures above 50ºC can lead to a fire or explosion. Contact Flyability for further assistance.
- Never disassemble, puncture, drop, strike or place heavy object on top of the battery in anyway. The battery may leak, catch fire or explode.
- Never let by any means the battery be short circuited. Use individual plastic bag when you put several batteries in the same safety bag.
- In case of battery leakage: do not allow the electrolyte to come in contact with clothing, skin, or eyes. If not applicable, immediately wash the affected area with fresh running water and then seek for medical assistance.
- Avoid using the battery near strong electromagnetic sources or heating sources, such as microwaves oven.
- In case of battery fire, use dry sand or a dry powder fire extinguisher to put out the fire. Never try to extinguish battery fire with water. Do not inhale the smoke coming off the battery. The smoke is toxic. Immediately seek for qualified emergency assistance (e.g. firefighters).
- Do not allow the battery to come in contact with conductive surfaces.
- Do not place the battery into pressurized compartments. Do not place the battery in pockets, bags, or drawers in might come in contact with conductive or perforating items. If not in use, always keep the batteries in the provided battery safe bag with individual plastic bag.
- Clean the battery using a clean, dry cloth.
- Do not connect the battery to wall outlets or car power outlets directly, and always use Flyability approved battery chargers.
- Charge the battery in an open and ventilated area. Do not enclose or cover the charger with items such as cloth as it may lead to overheating.
- Always place the battery in the provided battery safe bag while charging.
- Disconnect the charger when not in use. Examine regularly the charger for damage to the cord, the enclosure or other parts. Never use a damaged charger.
- Clean the charger using a clean dry cloth.
- Have close to the charger proper equipment to extinguish a battery fire and fire detection device.
- Keep the batteries out of the reach of children or animals.
- Do not leave the batteries exposed to sun-light or near heat sources. Do not leave batteries inside a vehicle in hot weather. Store the batteries in temperatures from 15ºC and 35ºC. For best results, store the batteries at in a temperature of 23ºC.
- Keep the battery dry.
- Keep the battery away from conductive objects.
- Store the battery in the provided battery safe bag max 3 per battery safe bag placed individually in plastic bags.
- Have close to the battery proper equipment to extinguish a battery fire and fire detection device.
- If you need to transport your batteries into an airplane, please follow the latest IATA regulations. Do not hesitate to contact your airline before flying to get advice. Keep the batteries as carry-on.
- Secure all connectors against short circuits using insulation tape, place the batteries in individual plastic bags, then store them in the provided battery safe bag.
- Never transport your battery with a state of charge higher than 30%. The discharge can be done by using your aircraft until the battery state of charge reaches 30%.
- Discharge completely your battery.
- Place insulating tape on the connectors and place the battery in a plastic bag.
- Dispose of the battery in specific recycling boxes. Do not place the battery in regular trash. Comply completely with the local regulations regarding the disposal and recycling of batteries.
