Aerobots Battery Safety

Lithium-ion batteries supply power to many kinds of devices including smartphones, laptops, scooters, e-cigarettes, smoke alarms, toys, and in our case, UAVs. Take care when using them. In rare cases, they can cause a fire or explosion.

The Problem:

These batteries store a large amount of energy in a small amount of space.

Sometimes batteries are not used the right way; batteries not designed for a specific use can be dangerous.

Batteries can overheat, catch fire, or explode.

Safety Tips:

Do not charge or store a battery on or near anything flammable

Keep batteries at room temperature

Do not place batteries in direct sunlight or keep them in hot vehicles

Disposal:

Do not put lithium-ion batteries in the trash.

Take them to a battery recycling location or contact your community for disposal instructions.  

Do not put discarded batteries in piles. 

Air Travel:

Please contact Aerobots for the latest copy of the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet)

Batteries should be checked in for in-cabin luggage
