Do not expose
a battery to temperatures
above 60 °C (140 °F). Keep
the battery away from children.
Avoid exposing the battery to
excessive shock or vibration.

the battery pack must speak to
the charger, or overcharging can
happen. What's an overcharge?
If the battery charges beyond its
capacity, the cell will break down
and cease to work (or worse).
