SAFETY NOTE:
Like many portable electronic devices, the NIDS Display Card contains a lithium battery, which may be harmful if it is cut open and the contents of the battery contact the skin, eyes or mouth. If the contents of the battery contact the skin, wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and water. If the contents of the battery contact the eyes, flush thoroughly with water and seek medical attention immediately. If the contents of the battery are ingested, do not induce vomiting, and seek medical attention immediately.
