Be sure to follow the instructions listed below when using the battery: -Do not place the battery in fire or heat up the battery. -Never insert the battery with its positive and negative poles reversed. -The battery has a predetermined polarity. If, when setting the battery in a battery charger or appliance, it cannot readily be fitted, do not insert the battery by force, instead, check the battery's polarity. -Do not connect the battery to a power receptacle or directly to a car's cigarette lighter. -Do not connect the positive terminal and the negative terminal of the battery to each other with any metal object such as a wire. Do not carry or store the batteries together with necklaces or other metal objects. -Do not disassemble or modify the battery. -Do not solder any objects directly onto the battery. -When charging the battery, use the specified battery charger or observe the battery charging conditions specified by Panasonic. -The battery incorporates a gas-venting structure to discharge internal gases. For this reason, do not deform the positive electrode. ● Never install the battery into hermetically sealed equipment. The battery may generate gas depending on circumstances, which may result in rupture, or explosion caused by ignition. ● The battery contains an alkaline electrolyte. This electrolyte may result in the loss of eyesight if it comes into contact with an eye. In such cases, do not rub the eye, but immediately wash the eye with clean water and then consult a doctor. ● When electrolyte leakage, discoloration, deformation, or other unusual symptom is detected on the battery, do not use it. ● Do not expose the battery to water or salt water, or allow the battery to get wet. Doing so may cause the battery to generate heat or rust. ● Do not peel off or scratch the outer covering tube of the battery. Doing so can easily cause the battery to generate a short circuit, which may in turn cause the battery to leak, generate heat, or explode. ● When a battery charge exceeds the specified charge time, stop charging the battery. If charged beyond the specified charge time, the battery will become overcharged, which may cause the battery to leak or generate heat. ● The battery contains an alkaline electrolyte. When this electrolyte contacts the skin or clothes, immediately wash them with clean water. Otherwise, the skin or clothes may be damaged. ● Store the batteries in a location out of reach of infants. If an infant should swallow a battery, consult a doctor immediately.

Basic construction External heat-shrinkable tube Connector plate (Nickel plate) Terminal plate (Nickel plate) Most batteries are used in the form of battery packs and installed in devices. When the battery pack is used, the type of battery, number of cells, shape of the pack, constituent parts of the pack, etc, are determined by the ratings (voltage, load current) of the device, charge specifications, space available in the battery compartment, use conditions, etc. At Panasonic, we are designing and manufacturing battery packs by taking the safety and reliability of the batteries into consideration. Insulating paper It is recommended that a thermistor for temperature detection, and a thermal protector or PTC element for protection from temperature rises and external short-circuiting, are installed in a nickel-metal hydride battery pack. Also,safety protection circuits are required for safety purposes. ex)Standard battery pack Unit cell Heat-shrinkable tube for cell Thermal protector for cordless phone for back-up Button top type A battery that is compatible with dry batteries and can be used again and again is friendly to the environment.

Consult Panasonic before defining the specifications. ● If a large number of battery cells are used, or if batteries having a high rated capacity are used, or if the heat dissipation of the battery pack is poor, the batteries may generate heat even when charged at 0.1 It. In such cases, it is necessary to re-design the battery pack for better heat dissipation or to lower the charge current. Design the battery pack so that the battery temperature rise at saturation is not higher than 50°C.
