Sealed lead acid battery contains sulphuric acid and large quantity of lead.
Due to the battery structure is 'non-spillable; only exposure to internal component in the case of breakage or extreme heat may be harzardous.
Avoid tightening or removing cables while charging or discharging battery. The generation of spark, static electricity discharges or open flames can cause a hygrogen explosion inside the battery and ruin the battery cells.
Do not use SLA battery together with different types of batteries, such as nickel - cadmium and dry cells batteries, as it may cause combustion and bodily burn injury.
Although very rare, but more common are hydrogen explosions. Hyrogen is generated when the battery is overcharged. Hyrogen gas may accumulate at the top of a battery. If this gas is exposed to flame or spark, it can explode.
Avoid connecting postive and negative terminals of the SLA battery with metallic wire or object. In addition, keep away metal tools, such as screw drivers, spanners, torque wrenches shall be properly insulated with vinly tape or other insulating materials.
Short circuiting the positive and negative terminals of the battery can cause burn injuiries, damage to the storage battery and trigger explosion.
Keep away from all ignition and high temperature sources.
Do not store battery in an unventilated and enclosed space. Doing so can cause an explosion, fire, equipment damage and bodily injury.
Do not place batteries in high humidity or moist environment. Doing so can cause the battery's terminal to corrode, and/or cause electrical shock, fire and etc.
Do match the polarity of the charger with battery to avoid damage to battery and charger. Wrong connection of the polarity may cause fire.
Do use dedicated charger that are designed for the battery. Different charging characteristics may lead to leakage, generation of excessive heat or explosion.
Do perform inspection on all intercell and intertier connections. With regularly scheduled inspections, detection of weak of bad battery cells, allowing timely replacement, eliminates the risk of system downtime.
Do not connect SLA battery directly to a power supply socket, an automobile's cigrette lighter and etc...without using a charger as a medium. Connecting the battery directly can cause it to leak fluid, generate heat, explode, or cause fires, burn injuries and etc...
Do not incinerate or do not heat up the batteries. They may burst if thrown into fire.
Do not destroy, modify or disassemble the battery. Doing so can cause fluid leakage, heat generation and explosion.
The performance of the SLA battery may not be compatible with certain equipment. Any uncertainty about the specifications of the battery should be brough to attention to our company.
Do not touch battery terminals at the same time wit bare hands to prevent shock. Wear rubber glove when connection batteries.
Do remove personal items (such as watches, necklaces, bracelests and rings) when handling with batteries. A short circuit through one of the the metal item can cause burn injuries.
Battery Safety Disposal
Faulty or weak batteries contain electrolyte and lead which are hazardous waste.
SLA batteries are toxic, dangerous and harmful to humans and environment.
International legislation places restrictions on the movement of hazardous waste.
The used batteries can be recycled.
Arrange for proper disposal for recycling in your locality.
An used SLA battery still possesses enerygy. So, a short circuit between its terminals can cause heating, flaming, and destruction.
