“A ‘bare cell’ is a single cylindrical lithium-ion
battery cell that has not been incorporated into a
battery pack with protective circuitry.”
Bare cells should not be touched or
handled by any consumers.
Before the bare cells are used as batteries,
they should be assembled into enclosed
battery packs with protective circuitry.

Any device that requires a user to
handle bare cells is dangerous
Various devices have been sold to consumers that
require the use of bare cells as a removable and
rechargeable power source. These devices require
the user to handle bare cells while inserting and
removing them from the device.
Important Safety Warnings

Lithium-ion cells as a removeable power source in any device used

Risk of disfiguring fire/explosion injury
“LG Chem has learned that some individual consumers purchase and use its cylindrical lithium-ion battery cells ("Li-Ion Cells") in
ways that LG Chem does not intend for them to be used: in e-Cigarettes and Vape Products that incorporate replaceable and
rechargeable individual Li-Ion Cells. The well known risks of misusing Li-Ion Cells in these devices have been
recognized by the FDA, the US Fire Administration and the Consumer Technology Association.
LG Chem’s Li-Ion Cells are not authorized, approved or intended for sale or use by individual consumers as original or replacement
power sources in these devices.”
STAY SAFE

We are committed to working with our Partners,
US and global regulators, industry trade
associations, consumer advocates and other

consumers and to share information about
consumer safety.
