Lithium batteries are used in capsule lights, podpoi, and lithium flowcells. 

Lithium ion batteries might cause damages like leaking, fire or explosion when misused or defective. Failure to read and follow the below instructions may result in fire, personal injury and damage to property if charged or used improperly or if defective. 


Always charge in an isolated area, away from other flammable materials like wood or carpet. Never charge batteries unattended. 

Please double check your charger to assure it is operating correctly at the beginning of every charge cycle. If your charger or battery becomes hot, balloons/swells, emits smoke or smells unusual, STOP CHARGING IMMEDIATELY. Observe the battery for 15 minutes in a safe area outside of any building or vehicle and away from any combustible material to assure that it does not ignite, and contact us. 

Some microUSB chargers on the market may have technical deficiencies that may cause them to charge Li-ion batteries incorrectly or at an improper rate. It is your responsibility solely to assure the charger you purchased works properly. Always monitor charging process to assure batteries are being charged properly. 


Do NOT disassemble or modify the battery. Vibration, puncture, contact with metals, or tampering with the battery can cause it to fail. The battery contains safety and protection devices, which, if damaged, may cause the battery to generate heat, explode, ignite, or short circuit. Severe injury may occur. 


Store in a cool, dry place. Never store or charge batteries in extreme temperatures, such as a hot car; near heat sources or fire; or in pressurized or very cold environments. 


Keep away from children. 


In the event the battery leaks and the fluid gets into one’s eye, do not rub the eye. Rinse well with water and immediately seek medical care. If left untreated, the battery fluid could cause damage to the eye.
