Prevent potential short-circuiting by keeping the batteries in their original retail packaging or by placing tape across the contacts to isolate the terminals.

Keep each battery away from other batteries and metal objects such as coins, keys, and jewelry.

Pack your batteries carefully to avoid crushing, puncturing, or any high degree of pressure on the battery, which can result in an internal short-circuit and risk overheating and fire.

If you pack a device containing batteries, secure the device against accidental activation by locking it, placing it in a protective case, etc
