# Problems with a lithium battery

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?

• Welcome to Chemistry.SE! Take the tour to get familiar with this site. Mathematical expressions and equations can be formatted using $\LaTeX$ syntax. 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. – Martin - マーチン Dec 14 '15 at 11:35
• It may be a side reaction or short circuit – user10153 Dec 14 '15 at 17:13
