  • Do not apply pressure to the surface of the battery.
  • Do not bend the battery.
  • Do not use tools of any kind to pry on or against the battery.
  • Ensure any screws during the servicing of this product are not lost or misplaced, to prevent accidental puncture or damage to the battery and other system components.
  • If the battery gets stuck inside your computer as a result of swelling, do not try to release it as puncturing, bending, or crushing a lithium-ion battery can be dangerous. In such an instance, contact Dell technical support for assistance. See
