I have a lithium battery that is separated from any device and is producing a whitish-gray smoke every time the wires move. Sometimes it makes hissing noises.

Is there a way to solve these problems?

It seems to me that this battery is broken and should be disposed of in a secure manner. Other than that I cannot see how this question relates to chemistry, so it might get closed as off topic. $\endgroup$ – Martin - マーチン Dec 14 '15 at 11:35

You probably want to drain its charge and put it into recycling. It's probably a fire hazard at this point, and the damage that a fire from it could cause will cost more than a new one.
