Safe Battery Use
# Mobile Phone
Nov 10, 2014
If your mobile phone battery is damaged, for example if it is dented, we recommend that you stop using it immediately and replace it with a Samsung genuine battery. If a damaged battery is used, this may affect performance of the battery and in some cases cause damage or injury through overheating, fire or explosion. Examples of situations in which a battery may become damaged are: use in an excessively hot environment, dropping the battery, external pressure on the battery, pet-biting, etc. We recommend that spare batteries are kept in a hard-shell case when not in use.
You should use only Samsung genuine or approved batteries that have been specifically designed for use in Samsung products. The use of incompatible batteries, cables and chargers may not be safe to use and could cause damage to the device or external damage. Please purchase Samsung-branded batteries from reputable and approved sellers to ensure the batteries are not counterfeit.
