with plenty of fresh water and contact a doctor. If fluid from the battery makes contact with your
skin or clothing, wash the area thoroughly with water.
• Only use or charge the battery in an environment with ambient temperatures between 0° and 40°C
(32° and 104°F). Only store the battery in an environment with ambient temperatures between
