Loose lithium-ion battery cells can spark, explode

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is warning consumers not to buy or use loose 18650 lithium-ion battery cells. The batteries are being separated from larger packs, rewrapped and sold online.

The battery cells do not have protection circuits. They can spark, burn or explode if the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals are exposed and touch other metal objects like keys or coins in a purse or pocket.

Products like toys, vaping devices, personal fans and headlamps may use loose 18650 battery cells as a power source, according to the CPSC. The CPSC is working with online retailers to remove these batteries from the marketplace.

Other types of lithium-ion batteries have the potential to overheat, catch fire or explode. Placing lithium batteries into the wrong type of battery recharger or placing non-rechargeable lithium batteries into a battery recharger also can be hazardous.

Report problems with lithium-ion batteries to the CPSC at www.SaferProducts.gov.

 

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced the recall of the following products. Consumers should stop using recalled products unlessotherwise instructed. Consumers can submit reports of harm to CPSC’s searchable online product safety database at www.SaferProducts.gov.
