Do not disassemble or modify the battery. The battery 
contains safety and protection devices, which, if damaged, 
may cause the battery to generate heat, explode, or ignite.
Immediately discontinue use of the battery if, while using, 
charging, or storing the battery, the battery emits an 
unusual smell, feels excessively hot (note that it is normal for 
the battery to feel warm), changes color or shape, or 
appears abnormal in any other way.
In the event the battery leaks and the fluid gets into your 
eye, do not rub the eye. Rinse well with water and 
immediately seek medical care. If left untreated, the battery 
fluid could cause damage to the eye.
