The battery can be charged and discharged hundreds of times but it will eventually wear out. When the
operating time (talk-time and standby time) is noticeably shorter than normal, it is time to buy a new
Use only batteries approved by the phone manufacturer and recharge your battery only with the
chargers approved by the manufacturer. Unplug the charger when not in use. Do not leave the battery
connected to a charger for longer than a week, since overcharging may shorten its lifetime. If left
unused a fully charged battery will discharge itself over time.
Temperature extremes can affect the ability of your battery to charge.
Use the battery only for its intended purpose.
Never use any charger or battery which is damaged.
Do not short-circuit the battery. Accidental short-circuiting can occur when a metallic object (coin,
clip or pen) causes direct connection of the + and - terminals of the battery (metal strips on the
battery) for example when you carry a spare battery in your pocket or purse. Short circuiting the
terminals may damage the battery or the connecting object.

Leaving the battery in hot or cold places, such as in a closed car in summer or winter conditions, will
reduce the capacity and lifetime of the battery. Always try to keep the battery between 15 °C and 25
°C. A phone with a hot or cold battery may temporarily not work, even when the battery is fully
charged. Batteries' performance is particularly limited in temperatures well below freezing.
Do not dispose of batteries in a fire!
Dispose of batteries according to local regulations (e.g. recycling). Do not dispose of as household
