Lithium Ion Batteries

The Lebanon Fire department reminds everyone to use caution and be aware of hazards with the use and storage of Lithium-Ion Batteries. Lithium-ion batteries supply power to many kinds of devices including smartphones, laptops, scooters, e-cigarettes, smoke alarms, toys, and even cars. In rare cases, they can cause a fire or explosion.

Stop using the battery if you notice any of the following:

  • Odor
  • Change in color
  • Too much heat
  • Change in shape
  • Leaking
  • Odd noises

If you notice any of the above signs and it is safe to do so, move the device away from anything that can catch fire. Call 9-1-1.
