Stainless steel container Hermetic glass-to-metal sealing Built-in safety vent Finish with or without flat positive end Non-flammable electrolyte Compliant with IEC 60086-4 safety standard and IEC 60079-11 intrinsic safety standard Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Component Recognition (File Number MH 12609) Restricted for transport (Class 9)

Pulse capability: Typically up to 400 mA (400 mA/0.1 second pulses, drained every 2 mn at + 20C from undischarged cells with 10 A base current, yield voltage readings above 3.0 V. The readings may vary according to the pulse characteristics, the temperature, and the cells previous history. Fitting the cell with a capacitor may be recommended in severe conditions. Consult Saft) Maximum recommended continuous current (to maintain cell heating within safe limits. Battery packs may imply lower level of maximum current and may request specific thermal protection. Consult Saft) Storage (recommended) (for more severe conditions, consult Saft) 250 mA

Storage The storage area should be clean, cool (preferably not exceeding + 30C), dry and ventilated. Warning Fire, explosion and burn hazard. Do not recharge, short circuit, crush, disassemble, heat above 100C (212F), incinerate, or expose contents to water. Do not solder directly to the cell (use tabbed cell versions instead).
