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.

Interesting Facts

Fact One

Lithium-ion battery fires can be difficult to extinguish with traditional fire extinguishers because they can reignite even after they appear to be out. Lithium-ion battery fire extinguishers are designed to prevent this from happening by smothering the fire and reducing the oxygen supply.

Fact Two

The dry powder agent used in lithium-ion battery fire extinguishers is often made from a combination of graphite, copper powder, and a polymer. This specialised agent is designed to smother the fire and absorb the heat, preventing the battery from reigniting.

Fact Three

Lithium-ion battery fire extinguishers are typically effective on Class D fires, which are fires involving combustible metals such as lithium, magnesium, and sodium. They can also be used on Class B and C fires, which involve flammable liquids and electrical equipment.
