Battery Fire Extinguishers
Lithium-ion battery fire extinguishers are specialised fire extinguishers designed to extinguish fires that involve lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are commonly used in a wide range of electronic devices, including smartphones, laptops, electric cars, and even some airplanes.
When lithium-ion batteries overheat, they can catch fire or explode, and once they catch fire, they can be extremely difficult to extinguish. Lithium-ion battery fire extinguishers are designed to combat these types of fires using a specialised extinguishing agent.
The extinguishing agent used in lithium-ion battery fire extinguishers is typically a dry powder, which is designed to interrupt the chemical reaction that is causing the fire. The powder is also non-conductive, which means that it will not damage the sensitive electronic components of the device or equipment.
Lithium-ion battery fire extinguishers are typically small and portable, making them easy to carry in a backpack or car. They are an essential safety measure for anyone who works with or around lithium-ion batteries, including electricians, mechanics, and people who own electronic devices powered by these batteries.
