WARNING - BATTERY LEAKAGE

The Wii U GamePad and Wii U Pro Controller contain a rechargeable lithium ion battery.

Leakage of ingredients contained within the battery, or the combustion products of the ingredients, can cause personal injury as well as damage to your Wii U system. If battery leakage occurs, avoid contact with skin. If contact occurs, immediately wash thoroughly with soap and water. If liquid leaking from a battery comes into contact with your eyes, immediately flush thoroughly with water and see a doctor.

To avoid battery leakage:

Do not expose battery to excessive physical shock, vibration, or liquids.

Do not disassemble, attempt to repair, or deform the battery.

Do not dispose of battery in a fire.

Do not touch the terminals of the battery or cause a short between the terminals with a metal object.

Do not peel or damage the battery label.

Some accessories may use AA batteries. Nintendo recommends high quality alkaline batteries for best performance and longevity of battery life. If you use rechargeable nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s guidelines for safety and proper usage.

Leakage of battery fluid can cause personal injury as well as damage to your system and accessories. If battery leakage occurs, thoroughly wash the affected skin and clothes. Keep battery fluid away from your eyes and mouth. Leaking batteries may make popping sounds.

To avoid battery leakage:

Do not mix used and new batteries (replace all batteries at the same time).

Do not mix different brands of batteries.

Nintendo recommends alkaline batteries. Do not use Lithium ion, nickel cadmium (NiCd), or carbon zinc batteries.

Do not leave batteries in the remote for long periods of non-use.

Do not recharge alkaline or non-rechargeablebatteries.

Do not put the batteries in backwards. Make sure that the positive (+) and negative (-)ends are facing in the correct directions. Insert the negative end first. When removing batteries, remove the positive end first.

Do not use damaged, deformed or leaking batteries.

Do not dispose of batteries in a fire.

The Wii U console contains a lithium coin cell battery. Contains perchlorate material - special handling may apply. For more information visit www.dtsc.ca.gov/hazardouswaste/perchlorate/. Do not remove the battery from the Wii U console unless it needs to be replaced.

PRECAUTIONS WHEN USING AC ADAPTERS

Please read and follow the precautions listed below when setting up and using the Wii U system. Failure to do so may result in damage to your Wii U system or accessories.
