Lithium-Ion Batteries and Charging – Fire Risk
As the use of Lithium Ion Batteries has increased exponentially in recent years, so has the risk of Lithium-Ion batteries exploding especially whilst being charged.
There seems to be no discrimination for one brand of battery responsible for more explosions than another, nor whether the battery is from a battery drill , an RF scanner or a rechargeable torch etc.
If a battery being charged is submitted to over charging or is simply faulty, it heats up , it is particularly vulnerable when overcharging then high temperatures cause a thermal runaway event, then the battery violently explodes shooting flames in the air for up to an hour.
Our JAGBE Li-Ion PODs (Charging Station Cabinets )are designed to contain an explosion and keep Lithium-Ion batteries cool whist being charged and stored.
There have been 100s of incidents of Lithium-Ion Batteries exploding with many destroying buildings , not only companies are being hit by these random battery explosions. Check the internet to confirm it.
