battery packs are not adequately protected with internal protection to meet the
requirements of appropriate safety standards. There is a possibility that these battery
packs may lead to fire or explosion. Please be advised that we are not liable for any
accident or failure occurring as a result of use of a counterfeit battery pack. To
