Misuse or use of incompatible phones, batteries, and charging devices could result in damage to the equipment and a possible

risk of fire, explosion, leakage, or other serious hazard.

Extreme temperatures will affect the charging capacity of your battery: it may require cooling or warming first.

Do not leave the battery in hot or cold places, such as in a car in summer or winter conditions, as you will reduce the capacity

and lifetime of the battery. Always try to keep the battery at room temperature. A phone with a hot or cold battery may
temporarily not work, even when the battery is fully charged. Li-ion batteries are particularly affected by temperatures below
0 °C (32 °F).

Do not place the phone in areas that may get very hot, such as on or near a cooking surface, cooking appliance, iron, or


Do not get your phone or battery wet. Even though they will dry and appear to operate normally, the circuitry could slowly

corrode and pose a safety hazard.

connection between the + and - terminals of the battery (metal strips on the battery), for example when you carry a spare
battery in a pocket or bag. Short-circuiting the terminals may damage the battery or the object causing the short-circuiting.

business trash may be prohibited. For safe disposal options for Li-Ion batteries, contact your nearest Samsung authorized
service center. Always recycle. Do not dispose of batteries in a fire.
