Lithium Battery Fire Extinguisher

Lithium Battery Fire Extinguisher

Lithium-based batteries are the high energy batteries due to which their power to density ratio is very high. Well, this shows that these batteries have the ability to store a large amount of energy and explode with more burst than the other batteries. There are so many reasons behind this nature of the lithium batteries that you must understand and keep in mind before you start using them in your devices.
 
Reasons Behind Lithium Battery Fire
 
Well, lithium-based batteries catch fire, and that is very easy for them. There could be so many reasons behind this, which you should know in order to avoid them if you are using these batteries. Here are a few of the reasons behind this.
 
1.Overheating of the lithium-based batteries occur when you overcharge them, thus they become prone to catch fire very easily in this condition.
 
2.Sometimes, due to high heat in the surroundings or might be due to weather conditions, the battery becomes heated up, become swollen and then fires up due to this reason. So, you have to keep in mind this and care about that it may not get heated more than required.
 
3.There could be short-circuiting that can lead to lithium-based batteries catching fire and making problem for you.
 
4.In some cases, the manufacturing faults in the lithium-based batteries lead to fire which could be very worse, so you have to make sure that you buy it from the authorized and the legal agents. Never rely on the local sellers who are selling the faulty and mismanaged lithium-based batteries.
 
The reasons are very straightforward, but simple too because they can help in making you conscious about the consequences it can produce for you while using it. So, you can stay on the safe side and keep in mind the precautions to be done for this.
 
How do you stop a lithium battery fire?
 
Lithium-based batteries need great care because of the high rate of explosion occur due to them. There are many ways to extinguish the fire of batteries, but as the lithium battery is not like every other battery in the market, so the way in which its fire is extinguished is also different from others. The lithium battery fires are considered as the most difficult fires to control.
 
Normally, when the battery catches fire, people go for the option of water that can clam down the fire. However, in the case of the lithium battery, if you will do this then it could turn out very dangerous for you. The fire would become even worse than this because the lithium can react with the water and make it explode even more than before. So, all you have to do is to use the Class D glass to calm down the fire exploded due to the lithium batteries. This is the only possible way out for this, and other than this there is no solution to this problem.
 
What extinguishing agents can be used on lithium?
 
Well, if we talk recent extinguishing agents of the lithium-based batteries that caught fire, then the most prominent ones include the water, foam, mist, and carbon dioxide gas. Their mixture is usually used, but if we talk about the most effective possible option here, then the water and the foam is the best solution that you can get when the lithium-based batteries catch fire.
 
You cannot simply use water to extinguish the fire for lithium-based batteries, because that will create more problems and the fire will become worse than before. There should be a mixture of the above-mentioned materials with it to make it effective for extinguishing its fire.
 
Safety Concerns with Lithium Battery?
 
Safety concerns with lithium-based batteries are many, and you have to live with them because you cannot either deny the utility of these devices nor you can stop using them because of their various applications in almost all the fields of life. You have to keep in mind the dangers of the lithium-based batteries in order to keep yourself concerned about the dangers that it can pose to you and to the surroundings in which you are using it. Here are the few safety concerns of the lithium-based batteries that you must know at any cost.
 
1.The lithium-based batteries are high energy batteries with high power to density ratio, so they can explode and cause the fire that could be dangerous for the device you are using for and also for you working in its surroundings.
 
2.They are now even used in the e-cigarettes in which even they can catch fire. There are many cases in which people have reported to have a fire while having them in their pockets and even while using them. So, you can imagine the safety concerns regarding them.
 
3.There are so many cases in which it is reported that the lithium-based batteries have resulted in houses catching fires very quickly.
 
4.The biggest safety concern of lithium-based batteries is that they can catch fire and then there is no possibility of controlling them immediately through the use of water because that can make the situation even worse because the fire might spread out due to this.
 
You must know that the lithium-based batteries are inherently dangerous for use no matter if you are using it in any of the devices in your home or outside and whether they are small or large in size. They can equally pose danger to you and your surroundings if you are using them. So, you have to be very conscious about this and keep your eyes on the precautions very deeply before and while using them.
 
Conclusion
 
Lithium-based batteries are very useful and becoming popular with time because of their extreme utility in many fields of life right now. However, it also poses many problems, especially the fire, so you have to keep that in control by taking precautions and learning about it in detail. Our article would help you’re a lot in doing it.
