dx5512, you definitely don't want to use any water. Lithium batteries and water do not get along at all. remove the battery as Tom describes then put clear packing, masking or electrical tape on the batteries’ terminals. Lithium batteries have been branded non-hazardous by the government. They are accepted at battery-recycling centers. AS in where to find one of those, that will depend on where you reside. Stay away from water.....

Pull the adhesive off so the battery can be removed without effort.
