Lithium ion batteries supply power to various devices that include smart phones, laptops, scooters, e-cigarettes, smoke alarms, toys, and cars. Please take care when using them. In rare cases, they can cause a fire or explosion.
Signs of a Problem
Stop using the battery if you notice:
If safe to do so, move the device away from anything that can catch fire and call 911.
The Winona Fire Department recommends if you have any further questions to go to fdnysmart.org and watch a short video presentation on lithium ion battery safety and storage.
