WARNING: Fire hazard. Do not store or carry battery so that
metal objects can contact exposed battery terminals. For example, do
not place battery in aprons, pockets, tool boxes, product kit boxes, drawers,
etc., with loose nails, screws, keys, etc. Transporting batteries can
possibly cause fires if the battery terminals inadvertently come in
contact with conductive materials such as keys, coins, hand tools and
the like. The US Department of Transportation Hazardous Material
Regulations (HMR) actually prohibit transporting batteries in commerce or on
airplanes (i.e., packed in suitcases and carry-on luggage) UNLESS they are
properly protected from short circuits. So when transporting individual
batteries, make sure that the battery terminals are protected and well
insulated from materials that could contact them and cause a short circuit.
NOTE: Batteries should not be put in checked baggage.
Recharge discharged batteries as soon as possible after
use or battery life may be greatly diminished.
