Always switch the device off and unplug the charger before removing the battery. When you unplug a charger or an accessory,
hold and pull the plug, not the cord.
When your charger is not in use, unplug it from the electrical plug and the device. Do not leave a fully charged battery
connected to a charger, as overcharging may shorten the battery’s lifetime. If left unused, a fully charged battery will lose
its charge over time.
Always keep the battery between 15°C and 25°C (59°F and 77°F). Extreme temperatures reduce the capacity and lifetime
of the battery. A device with a hot or cold battery may not work temporarily.
