SAFETY DATA SHEET SECTION I – PRODUCT AND COMPANY IDENTIFICATION
9-Volt Lithium Manganese Dioxide Batteries (TFSi Style)
Section II - HAZARD IDENTIFICATION
This Ultralife battery product meets the definition of an article. Under the Globally
Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), “Articles” as
defined in the Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200) of the
Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the United States of America, or by
similar definition, are outside the scope of the system. [Rev. 2 (2007) Part 22.214.171.124.1]
Do not expose to fire or open flame. Do not mix with batteries of varying sizes, chemistries or types. Do not puncture, deform, incinerate or heat above 60ºC (140ºF).
The materials contained in this product may only represent a hazard if the integrity of the cell or battery is compromised; physically or electrically abused. SECTION III - COMPOSITION - INGREDIENTS/IDENTITY INFORMATION Under normal use conditions, cells and batteries do not emit hazardous or regulated substances.
Propylene Carbonate, C4H6O3 108-32-7 203-572-1
Depending on product configuration, components used to assemble battery packs (e.g. housings, electronic
components and wiring) may contain additional hazardous materials.

Remove to fresh air immediately. If breathing is difficult, seek emergency medical attention.
Consult a physician or local poison control center immediately
Exposure to materials from a ruptured or otherwise damaged cell or battery may
Flush immediately with water and wash affected area with soap and water.
Exposure to materials from a ruptured or otherwise damaged cell or battery may
Flush immediately with copious amounts of water for at least 15 minutes; consult a
SECTION V - FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES
Copious amounts of cold water or water-based foam may be used to cool burning
cells or batteries. Do not use warm or hot water.
A carbon dioxide (CO2) extinguisher is also effective. For fires involving exposed, raw lithium metal (characterized by deep red flames),
use only metal (Class D) fire extinguishers.
Use a positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) if cells or
Full fire fighting protective clothing is necessary. During water application, caution is advised as burning pieces of flammable
Cells or batteries that are damaged, opened or exposed to excessive heat/fire may
flame or leak potentially hazardous organic vapors.
SECTION VI - ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES In the event a cell or battery is crushed; releasing its contents, rubber gloves must be used to
Avoid inhalation of any vapors that may be emitted. Damaged batteries that are not hot or burning should be placed in a sealed plastic bag or container. ANY PHOTOCOPY MUST BE OF THIS ENTIRE DOCUMENT SECTION VII - HANDLING AND STORAGE
Batteries are not designed to be recharged. Charging a primary cell or battery
may result in electrolyte leakage and/or cause the cell or battery to flame.
Never disassemble a battery or bypass any safety device. More than a momentary short circuit will generally reduce the battery service
life. Batteries with fuses will no longer be functional after being shorted.
Extended short-circuiting creates high temperatures in the cell. High temperatures can cause burns in skin or cause the cell to flame. Avoid reversing battery polarity within the battery assembly. To do so may
Batteries should be separated from other materials and stored in a
non-combustible, well ventilated structure with sufficient clearance between
walls and battery stacks. Do not place batteries near heating equipment,
nor expose to direct sunlight for long periods.
Do not store batteries above 60ºC (140ºF) or below -40ºC (-40ºF). Store
batteries in a cool (below 25ºC (77ºF)), dry area that is subject to little
temperature change. Elevated temperatures can result in reduced battery
service life. Battery exposure to temperatures in excess of 130ºC (266ºF)
will result in the battery venting flammable liquid and gases.
Do not store batteries in a manner that allows terminals to short circuit.
SECTION VIII: EXPOSURE CONTROLS / PERSONAL PROTECTION
Under conditions of normal use, batteries do not emit hazardous or regulated
No engineering controls are required for handling batteries that have not been

SECTION XI – TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION No toxicological impacts are expected under normal use conditions. The electrolytes contained in this cell or battery can irritate eyes with any contact. Prolonged contact of electrolytes with lung tissue, skin or mucous membranes may cause irritation. Detailed information regarding sensitization, carcinogenicity, mutagenicity or reproductive
toxicity related to internal cell or battery components has not been included in this document.
Carcinogen References SECTION XII – ECOLOGICAL INFORMATION No ecological impacts expected under normal use conditions. Detailed information regarding the ecological impact of internal cell or battery components has not SECTION XIII. DISPOSAL CONSIDERATIONS
Do not dispose in fire. Battery disposal regulations vary on national, state/provincial and local bases. Disposal must be conducted in accordance with the applicable regulations. These batteries contain recyclable materials and recycling is encouraged over disposal. ANY PHOTOCOPY MUST BE OF THIS ENTIRE DOCUMENT SECTION XIV. TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION
Ultralife’s lithium metal primary cells and batteries and lithium-ion cells and batteries are classified and
regulated as Class 9 dangerous goods (also known as “hazardous materials” in the United States) by
the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), International Air Transport Association (IATA),
International Maritime Organization (IMO) and many government agencies such as the U.S.
Department of Transportation (DOT). These organizations and agencies publish regulations that
contain detailed packaging, marking, labeling, documentation, and training requirements that must be
followed when offering (shipping) Ultralife’s cells and batteries for transportation. However, small cells and batteries are not subject to certain provisions of the regulations (e.g. Class 9 labeling and UN specification packaging) if they meet specific requirements. The regulations are based
on the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods Model Regulations and the UN
Manual of Tests and Criteria. These regulations also apply to shipments of cells and batteries that are packed with or contained in equipment. Failure to comply with these regulations can result
in substantial civil or criminal penalties.
The dangerous goods regulations require that each cell and battery design be subject to tests contained
in Section 38.3 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria prior to being offered for transport.
Approved, production level cells and batteries manufactured and assembled by Ultralife have been tested to Section 38.3 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria and passed T1 through T8.
Batteries or battery packs constructed by other parties using Ultralife’s cells must be subjected to the
tests contained in Section 38.3 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria.
For more detailed information, refer to the Transportation Regulations Page on Ultralife’s website:
UN 3091, Lithium metal batteries, contained in equipment
UN 3091, Lithium metal batteries, packed with equipment
These cells and batteries must be identified as above on the Bill of Lading (or other shipping
documentation) and properly packaged with their terminals protected from short circuit.
Air shipments of lithium metal cells and batteries must be packed and marked according to IATA/ICAO
Packing Instruction 968 (batteries only); 969 (with equipment) or 970 (contained in equipment).
Sea shipments of lithium metal cells and batteries must be packed and marked according to IMDG
