What are the defects?
The battery may overheat, vaporising the internal liquid into a toxic gas which vents from the battery.
What are the hazards?
If the battery overheats and vents gas it can cause severe skin and/or eye irritation and damage/corrode property. If the gas vents into an enclosed area, poisoning could occur, resulting in serious illness, injury or death.
If the gas vents in the presence of an ignition source there is an increased risk of a fire.
What should consumers do?
Consumers should stop using the battery and electrically isolate and store the battery in a cool location. Consumers should return the battery to the place of purchase to arrange for the battery to be replaced or repaired.
