Batteries may contain heavy metals such as Lithium Ion, mercury, lead, cadmium and nickel, which can be harmful to the environment when disposed of improperly. Some communities offer recycling or collection of batteries. Contact your local government disposal practices in your area or call our customer service team on 01227740066 where we offer a take back service. Upon removal , cover the battery pack’s terminals with heavy duty adhesive tape. Do not attempt to destroy or disassemble battery pack or remove any of its components. Never touch both terminals with metal objects and/or body parts as short circuit may result.
