4.1.1 Standard Charge
Unless otherwise specified, “Rated Charge” shall consist of charging at constant current of 0.3C(1440mA).The cell shall then be charged at constant voltage of 4.20V while tapering the charge current. Charging shall be terminated when the charging current has tapered to 50mA. For test purposes, charging shall be performed at 25ºC.
4.1.2 Standard Discharge
“Standard Discharge” shall consist of discharging at a constant current of 0.2C(960mA) to 2.50V. Discharging is to be performed at 25ºC unless otherwise noted (such as capacity versus temperature).
4.1.3 Charge / discharge condition
Cells shall be charged at constant current of 0.3C(1,440mA) to 4.10V with end current of 1/20C. Cells shall be discharged at constant current of 0.5C(2,400mA) to 2.85V. Charging and discharging are to be performed at 25 ºC unless otherwise noted (such as capacity versus temperature). Cells are to rest 10 minutes after charge and 20 minutes after discharge at 25ºC.
Do not connect battery directly to cigarette/aux jack in automobiles. Use only approved chargers.
Do not charge with constant current more than maximum charge current.
Do not charge the cell, which was discharged equal to 1V or under.
Do not disassemble or reconstruct the battery.
Do not throw or cause impact.
Do not pierce a hole in the battery with sharp things. (such as nail, knife, pencil, drill)
Do not use with other batteries or cells.
Do not solder on battery directly.
Do not press the battery with overload in manufacturing process, especially ultrasonic welding.
Do not use old and new cells together for packing.
Do not expose the battery to high heat. (such as fire)
Do not put the battery into a microwave or high pressure container.
Do not use the battery reversed.
Do not connect positive(+) and negative(-) with conductive materials (such as metal, wire)
Do not allow the battery to be immerged in or wetted with water or sea-water.
Do not give immoderate heat and force to battery cell during a welding process of metal plates on it.
