    Back up lithium battery-TV
    We just moved and brought along our Samsung TV. We had to switch to
    Time Warner and they suggested a back up battery for our new telephones.

    In big letters: Caution don't transport if damaged... etc. LITHIUM BATTERY

    Well I've seen all kinds of serious problems with these batteries. How can I
    Avoid using a lithium battery. There must be one in my phone right now.
    My TV is a Samsung and they may have one too. I'm pretty nervous about
    All of this. Any advice?

    Not to be a "Smart a***", but is the battery in question damaged in any way?

    Okay, I guess I don't fully understand your question. If the battery is packaged properly there is no danger in transporting it anywhere.

    You can't avoid using a Lithium battery, that is what the unit is designed for.
    Those are very small batteries, probably not subject to spontaneous combustion.

    Why do you think your TV has a lithium battery?

    I threw you off by saying I brought my Samsung TV... the battery is for the phone

    It's the word "probably" that scares. Turns out there are thousands upon
    Thousands explosions... recently one woman with headphones on an
    Airplane exploded in her ear... spontaneous combustion of wireless
    Devices... I just wish there was something I could do... like change
    Batteries and use another companies...

    I think you are overreacting! " thousand upon thousands"? Anecdotal evidence? Cell phone batteries are quite different than home phone batteries. Cell phone batteries have to hold a lot of power and are charged differently. Do you have a cell phone? If so, are you worried about that battery?

    I have used this battery in my phone backup for years and years. There aren't any problems. You are over thinking it. You TV has batteries inside also but are safe. You can actually have them replaced if your TV goes down. They are not a problem either
