SAFETY INFORMATION
BATTERY STORAGE AND HANDLING

THE CAMERA CONTAINS SENSITIVE COMPONENTS, INCLUDING THE BATTERY. AVOID EXPOSING YOUR CAMERA TO VERY COLD OR VERY HOT TEMPERATURES. LOW OR HIGH TEMPERATURE CONDITIONS MAY SHORTEN THE BATTERY LIFE.

• KEEP THE BATTERY AWAY FROM HEAT AND FIRE. DO NOT DRY THE CAMERA OR BATTERY WITH AN EXTERNAL HEAT SOURCE SUCH AS A MICROWAVE OVEN OR HAIR DRYER. DO NOT STORE YOUR BATTERY WITH METAL OBJECTS, SUCH AS COINS, KEYS OR NECKLACES. BATTERY TERMINALS COMING IN CONTACT WITH METAL OBJECTS MAY CAUSE A FIRE.

• DO NOT MAKE ANY UNAUTHORIZED ALTERATIONS TO THE CAMERA. DO NOT USE UNAUTHORIZED CHARGERS. DOING SO MAY COMPROMISE SAFETY, REGULATORY COMPLIANCE, PERFORMANCE, AND MAY VOID THE WARRANTY.

WARNING: DO NOT DROP, DISASSEMBLE, OPEN, CRUSH, BEND, DEFORM, PUNCTURE, SHRED, MICROWAVE, INCINERATE OR PAINT THE CAMERA OR BATTERY. DO NOT INSERT FOREIGN OBJECTS INTO THE BATTERY OPENING ON THE CAMERA. IF THE BATTERY DOESN’T FIT, PLEASE CHECK THE BATTERY’S ORIENTATION AND DO NOT FORCE INTO THE BATTERY OPENING.

• DO NOT USE THE CAMERA OR THE BATTERY IF IT HAS BEEN DAMAGED—FOR EXAMPLE, IF CRACKED, PUNCTURED OR HARMED BY WATER. STOP USING THE BATTERY IF THE THERE ARE NOTICEABLE ABNORMALITIES SUCH AS ABNORMAL SMELL, HEAT, DEFORMITIES, OR DISCOLORATION. DISASSEMBLING OR PUNCTURING THE BATTERY CAN CAUSE AN EXPLOSION OR FIRE.

• BATTERY DISPOSAL: MOST RECHARGEABLE LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES ARE CLASSIFIED AS NON-HAZARDOUS WASTE AND ARE SAFE FOR DISPOSAL IN THE NORMAL MUNICIPAL WASTE STREAM. MANY LOCALITIES HAVE LAWS IN PLACE REQUIRING BATTERY RECYCLING. CHECK YOUR LOCAL LAWS TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU CAN DISPOSE OF RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES IN YOUR REGULAR TRASH. TO SAFELY DISPOSE OF LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES, PROTECT TERMINALS FROM EXPOSURE TO OTHER METAL WITH PACKING, MASKING OR ELECTRICAL TAPE SO THEY DO NOT CAUSE A FIRE WHILE BEING TRANSPORTED. RECYCLING IS THE BEST METHOD OF BATTERY DISPOSAL.

• RECYCLING: LITHIUM-ION BATTERIES, HOWEVER, DO CONTAIN RECYCLABLE MATERIALS AND ARE ACCEPTED FOR RECYCLING BY THE RECHARGEABLE BATTERY RECYCLING CORPORATION’S (RBRC) BATTERY RECYCLING PROGRAM. WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO VISIT CALL2RECYCLE.ORG IN NORTH AMERICA TO FIND A CONVENIENT RECYCLING LOCATION.

• NEVER DISPOSE OF A BATTERY IN A FIRE BECAUSE IT MAY EXPLODE. WARNING: ONLY USE MANUFACTURER-RECOMMENDED REPLACEMENT BATTERIES FOR YOUR CAMERA.
