A damaged lithium-ion battery can be dangerous
It is crucial to never use or charge a lithium-ion battery that shows signs of damage (depressed, cracked, open, or broken). This damage can compromise the integrity of the battery and significantly increase the risk of thermal runaway, which could cause a fire during use or even start a fire.
If you notice that one of your batteries appears to be malfunctioning or has been damaged following an impact, a fall, or improper storage, it is imperative that you take immediate action to ensure your safety. In such cases, follow these steps:
Stop using the damaged battery immediately and keep it away from any source of heat or flame.
Isolate the battery
Place the damaged battery in a safe place, away from flammable objects and away from any potential hazards.
