Section 3 Hazards Identification
The lithium ion cells are not hazardous when used according to the instructions of manufacturer
under normal conditions. In case of abuse, there's a risk of rupture, fire, heat, leakage of internal
components, which could cause casualty loss. Abuses include but not limited to the following
cases: charge for a long time, short circuit, put into fire, whack with hard object, puncture with
acute object, crush, broken.
Section 4 First-aid Measures
The lithium cells are not hazardous with eye and skin contact under normal circumstance. In case
of fire or rupture, the leakage of internal hazardous substance and formation of hazardous
substance would occur, take the following measures if contact with it:
Eye : Check for and remove any contact lenses. Immediately flush with plenty of clean water for
at lest 15 minutes, seek medical assistance;
Skin: Immediately flush with plenty of clean water for 15 minutes; seek medical assistance if
Inhalation: If inhaled, remove to fresh air immediately, seek medical assistance, and ventilate the
Ingestion: Rinse mouth with clean water immediately, activate vomit under the direction of expert,
and seek medical assistance.
Section 5 Fire-fighting Measures
Extinguish with plenty of water, dry powder extinguishers, sands, earth. Combustion products and
decomposed products by contact of water or air with internal substance include: carbon monoxide,
carbon dioxide, hydrogen fluoride, phosphorus fluoride.
Section 6 Accidental Release Measures
When leakage of cells happens, liquid could be absorbed with sands, earth or other inert substance,
and the contaminated area should be ventilated meantime.
Section 7 Handling and Storage
Don't handle and store cells with metalwork. Store and use far away from heat, sparks, open flame,
or any other ignition source, and under room temperature (<30℃) in ventilating and
Section 8 Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
There is no need for protect under normal conditions. In engineering aspect, ventilation equipment
should be installed. Gas mask, blinkers, gloves enduring chemical erosion and exposure suit are
required when dealing with fire and leakage.
Section 9 Physical and Chemical Properties
Cells are not single chemical material; there are no specific physical and chemical properties such
as melting point and boiling point.
Main purpose of lithium cells: used in notebook computers.
Section 10 Stability and Reactivity
Cells are safe under normal conditions. The following substance might appear after catching fire
or leakage: organic carbonate, hydrogen fluoride, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, phosphorus
Section 11 Toxicological Information
Cells are not hazardous when used properly. If the cells catch fire or the internal substance leaks,
combustion products and decomposed products might have irritation and toxicity to skin, eye and
respiratory systems. Toxicity data of some substance are listed following:
Extremely toxic, May be fatal if inhaled or ingested. Readily absorbed through the skin contact
may be fatal. Possible being mutagen. LCLO: 50 ppm/30m (human beings)，LC50： 1276 ppm/1h
Carbon and graphite:
It is slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant), ingestion, or inhalation and cause chronic
damage to upper respiratory tract and cardiovascular system.
Dust may cause respiratory irritation.
LD50: 3.5 mg kg-1(mouse).
There is no hazard.
Dust may be harmful to respiratory system.
Section 12 Ecological Information
There is no influence to ecology and environment when used properly.
Section 13 Disposal
Deserted cells couldn't be treated as ordinary trash. Be put to garbage box which recycle batteries
after being placed into plastic bags or be dealt as special trash. Couldn't be thrown into fire or
placed in high temperature. Couldn't be dissected, pierced, crushed or treated similarly. The
package and plastic box which contain cells could be treated as ordinary trash. Best way is
Section 14 Transport Information
For the international transport of lithium batteries, they must comply with these regulations: the
International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code by International Maritime Organization
(IMO), Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) by International Air Transport Association (IATA)
and Technical Instructions for the Safe Transport of Dangerous Goods by Air (TI) by International
Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). These regulations are based on the UN Recommendations on
the transport of Dangerous Goods, Manual of Tests and Criteria.
Lithium batteries which meet the requirements of UN38.3 (UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, Part
III, subsection 38.3) could be transported by air and by sea as ordinary goods, otherwise should be
transported according to Class 9, Packing Group II hazardous goods.
As the published of the UN Recommendations on the transport of Dangerous Goods, 51th edition
(2010), all these regulations have added some new contents to regulate the transport of lithium ion
batteries. And they should be complied since 1 January 2009.
1. For lithium ion batteries, UN ID number is 3480. For lithium ion batteries contained in
equipment or lithium ion batteries packed with equipment, UN ID number is 3481.
2. The consignment should be fully described by proper shipping name and packed, marked
and in proper condition for carriage by air. The consignment is not classified as dangerous
under the current edition of the IATA 51th Effective, Dangerous goods regulation and all
applicable carrier and government regulations.
3. For transported by air, Lithium-ion Cells/Batteries shipped as "Not Restricted" Cargo: Must
comply with SECTION Ⅱ of P1965-P1967 accordingly; For cells, the Watt-hour rating
should not be more than 20Wh; For batteries, the Watt-hour rating should not be more than
100Wh. Watt- hour rating must be marked on the outside of the battery case (marked by
manufacturer). (Except those that were manufactured before 1 January 2010, which may be
transported without this marking until 31 December 2011).
4. Each consignment must be accompanied with a document such as an air waybill with an
indication. For those Lithium ion cells/ batteries contained in equipment, the equipment must
be equipped with an effective means of preventing accidental activation.
5. Quantity per package shall not exceed 10kg.
6. Each package must be capable of withstanding a 1.2m drop test in any orientation without
damage of cells or batteries contained therein.
7. Lithium batteries which meet the requirements of A154 could be transported by air, and the
batteries manufactured by BAK meet these requirements.( A154 Lithium batteries identified
by the manufacturer as being defective for safety reasons, or that have been damaged, that
have the potential of producing a dangerous evolution of heat, fire or short circuit are
forbidden for transport. )
8. Cells and batteries must be protected so as to prevent short circuits. This includes protection
against contact with conductive materials within the same packaging that could lead to short
Section 15 Regulatory Information
There is no regulation on lithium batteries management.
Section 16 Other Information
This information is not effective to all the cells manufactured by BAK. This information comes
from reliable sources, but no warranty is made to the completeness and accuracy of information
contained. BAK doesn't assume responsibility for any damage or loss because of misuse of cells.
Users should grasp the correct use method and be responsible for the use of cells.
CASE REPORT Intracerebral haemorrhage and We report on a 65-year-old woman who presented with acute right-sided weakness because of an intracerebral (thalamic) haemorrhage.As a Qigong enthusiast with a long-standing history of hypertension,she developed a stroke syndrome soon after practising Qigong onemorning. Following neurological recovery, the patient exhibited erraticblood pressure responses while practising Qigong, despite the factthat resting blood pressure was normal. The haemodynamic responsesto exercise are discussed and a review of the therapeutic implicationsof practising Qigong is presented.
