Samsara products utilize Lithium batteries, which are very common in many consumer devices due to their high energy capacity. While safe to operate, care should be taken when disposing of these devices since their batteries contain hazardous material that are toxic and corrosive.
While there are no federal regulations for the disposal of lithium batteries, individual states and localities may have their own guidelines for battery disposal. Many recycling facilities exist that process lithium ion batteries. In the United States and Canada, a large network of over 30,000 battery drop-off locations may be found at www.call2recycle.org.
Do not open Samsara devices or handle the lithium batteries inside them. Lithium batteries should remain inside the unit when discarding.
