Name of Product
Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery (or, Lithium-Ion secondary battery)
: Even classified as lithium ion batteries (UN3480), 2009 IATA Dangerous GoodsRegulations 50th edition Packing Instruction 965 Part 1 is applied. The product ishandled as Non-Dangerous Goods by meeting the following requirements. (1)(3)
Prat 1Lithium ion cells and batteries offered for transport are not subject to other additionalrequirements of these Regulations if they meet the requirements in Part 1.
Lithium batteries identified by the manufacturer as being defective for safety reasons,or that have been damaged, that have the potential of producing a dangerousevolution of heat, fire or short circuit are forbidden for transport (e.g. those beingreturned to the manufacturer for safety reasons).
Lithium ion cells and batteries may be offered for transport if they meet the following:
for cells, the Watt-hour rating is not more than 20Wh;
for batteries, Watt-hour rating is not more than 100Wh;The Watt-hour rating must be marked on outside of the battery case exceptthose manufactured before 1 January 2009 which may be transported withoutthis marking until 31 December 2010;
each cell or battery is of the type proven to meet the requirements of each test inthe UN Manual of Tests and Criteria Part Ⅲ subsection 38.3.
And they are out of scope for Special Provision A154 and comply with SpecialProvision A164. (3)
Hazardous and Toxicity Class
: It may cause heat generation or electrolyte leakage if battery terminals contact withother metals. Electrolyte is flammable. In case of electrolyte leakage, move the batteryfrom fire immediately.
: Vapor generated from burning batteries, may make eyes, skin and throat irritate.
First Aid Measures
The product contains organic electrolyte. In case of electrolyte leakage from the battery, actions describedbelow are required.
: Flush the eyes with plenty of clean water for at least 15 minutes immediately, without rubbing. Take a medical treatment. If appropriate procedures are not taken, this maycause an eye irritation.
: Wash the contact areas off immediately with plenty of water and soap.
If appropriate procedures are not taken, this may cause sores on the skin.
: Remove to fresh air immediately. Take a medical treatment.
Fire Fighting Measures
Extinguishing method : Since vapor, generated from burning batteries may make eyes, nose and throat
irritate, be sure to extinguish the fire on the windward side. Wear the respiratoryprotection equipment in some cases.
Fire extinguishing agent : Plenty of water and alcohol-resistant foam are effective.
Measures for electrolyte leakage from the battery
・ Take up with absorbent cloth.
・ Move the battery away from the fire.
Handling and Storage
・ When packing the batteries, do not allow battery terminals to contact each other, or contact with other
metals. Be sure to pack batteries by providing partitions in the packaging box, or in a separate plasticbag so that the single batteries are not mixed together. (1)(2)
・ Use strong material for packaging boxes so that they will not be damaged by vibration, impact, dropping
and stacking during their transportation. (1)(2)(3)
・ Do not let water penetrate into packaging boxes during their storage and transportation.
・ The batteries will be stored at room temperature, charged to about 30－50% of capacity.
・ Do not store the battery in places of the high temperature exceeding 35 deg. C or under direct sunlight
or in front of a stove. Please also avoid the places of high humidity. Be sure not to expose the battery tocondensation, water drop or not to store it under frozen condition.
・ Batteries are sure to be packed in such a way as to prevent short circuits under conditions normally
・ Please avoid storing the battery in the places where it is exposed to the static electricity so that no
damage will not be caused to the protection circuit of the battery pack.
(in case of electrolyte leakage from the battery)
Acceptable concentration : Not specified in ACGIH. (4)Facilities
: Provide appropriate ventilation system such as local ventilator in the storage place.
: Gas mask for organic gases, safety goggle, safety glove.
Physical and Chemical Properties of Single cell
Stability and Reactivity
Since batteries utilize a chemical reaction they are actually considered a chemical product.
As such, battery performance will deteriorate over time even if stored for a long period of time without beingused. In addition, the various usage conditions such as charge, discharge, ambient temperature, etc. are notmaintained within the specified ranges the life expectancy of the battery may be shortened or the device inwhich the battery is used may be damaged by electrolyte leakage.
(in case of electrolyte leakage from the battery)
・ In case of the worn-out battery was disposed in land, the battery case may be corroded, and leak
electrolyte. But, we have no ecological information.
Heavy metal in battery : Mercury(Hg) and Cadmium(Cd) are neither contained nor used in battery.
・ When the battery is worn out, dispose of it under the ordinance of each local government or the low
・ Disposal of the worn-out battery may be subjected to Collection and Recycling Regulation.
・ Even classified as lithium ion batteries (UN3480), 2009 IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations 50th
edition Packing Instruction 965 Part 1 is applied. The product is handled as Non-Dangerous Goods bymeeting the following requirements. (1)
・ During the transportation of a large amount of batteries by ship, trailer or railway, do not leave them in
the places of high temperatures and do not allow them to be exposed to condensation.
・ During the transportation do not allow packages to be fallen down or damaged.
・ Lithium ion batteries identified by 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 areforbidden for transport (e.g. those being returned to the manufacturer for safety reasons).
・ Except when installed in equipment, for air shipment that contain one or more cells or batteries, they
are necessary to meet the following items.
1. Each consignment must be accompanied with a document such as air waybill with an indication
that:・ the package contains lithium ion cells or batteries;
・ the package must be handled with care and that a flammability hazard exists if the package
・ special procedures should be followed in the event the package is damaged, to include
・ a telephone number for additional information.
2. Each package must be labeled with a lithium battery handling label.
・ The width 120mm * length 110mm sized lithium battery handling label must be labeled onto
the side of a package without bending it.
3. Each package must be capable of withstanding a 1.2 m drop test in any orientation.
・ damage to cells or batteries contained therein;・ shifting of the contents so as to allow battery to battery (or cell to cell) contact;・ releaser of contents.
4. Except when lithium ion cells or batteries are packed with or contained in equipment, quantity per
package shall not exceed 10kg for air shipment or 30kg for marine shipment.
5. Each package containing more than four cells or more than two batteries installed in equipment
must be complied with above item 1 and 2.
・ The rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery pack as stated in Appendix are made in compliance to the
requirements stated in the latest edition of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations Packing Instruction965 Part 1 such that they can be transported as a NOT RESTRICTED (non-hazardous/non-dangerous)goods. However, if those lithium-ion battery packs are pack with or contained in an equipment, then it isthe responsibility of the shipper to ensure that the consignment are packed in compliance to the latestedition of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations Part 1 section of either Packing Instruction 966 or967 in order for that consignment to be declared as NOT RESTRICTED (non-hazardous/non-Dangerous).
