Do not allow the battery to touch metal objects
short-circuiting can occur when a metallic object (coin, key, jewelry, clip,
or pen) causes a direct connection between the + and - terminals of the
battery (metal strips on the battery), for example when you carry a spare
battery in a pocket or bag. Short-circuiting the terminals may damage the
battery or the object causing the short-circuiting.
Use only Samsung-approved batteries, and recharge your
battery only with Samsung-approved chargers which are
specifically designed for your phone.
Use of a non-Samsung-approved battery or charger may present a risk
of fire, explosion, leakage, or other hazard
. Samsung's warranty does
not cover damage to the phone caused by nonSamsung-approved
batteries and/or chargers.
Do not use incompatible cell phone batteries and chargers
websites and second-hand dealers not associated with reputable
manufacturers and carriers, might be selling incompatible or even
counterfeit batteries and chargers. Consumers should purchase
manufacturer or carrier-recommended products and accessories. If
unsure about whether a replacement battery or charger is compatible,
contact the manufacturer of the battery or charger.
Misuse or use of incompatible phones, batteries, and charging
devices could result in damage to the equipment and a possible risk
of fire, explosion, or leakage, leading to serious injuries, damages to
your phone, or other serious hazard
