Battery Safety Label
1. -  When working in the area of batteries, fire, sparks, open flame and smoking are prohibited. Avoid sparks when working with cables and electrical devices, and from electrostatic discharge. Avoid short circuits. For this reason, tools should not be rested on the battery.
2. -  Wear protective eyewear when working on the battery.
3. -  Always keep acid and batteries out of the reach of children.

5. -  Do not dispose of old batteries in household waste.
6. -  When handling batteries, there is a risk of explosion. Battery charging produces a highly explosive gas mixture.
