Lithium battery management recommendations for FELCO end users
Batteries may swell and/or create internal sparks and/or burn.
There is a risk of minor burns mainly on the back, if the back-pack is worn.
In the event of a fire caused by a battery, there is a risk of serious injury.
If a battery fire spreads due to the contact with flammable materials, the battery being left unattended and/or not being properly stored, the risk can be major property damage and possible death from fire or smoke.
What to do
Users should follow the instructions shown on the “FELCO battery management recommendations” leaflet which highlights important product information and safety instructions.
