A Burning  Question

How Can We Tackle Electric Vehicle Fire Incidents?

The evolution of electric vehicles (EVs) has started a new era of transportation, offering a promising solution to environmental concerns, and reducing reliance on fossil fuels.

Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) have emerged as the most widely adopted and commercialized battery type in EVs due to their high energy density, long cycle life, and relatively low self-discharge rates. 

The potential fire hazards associated with lithium-ion batteries stem from their high energy densities and the presence of flammable organic electrolytes. This poses challenges in terms of usage, storage, and handling.

What Causes Li-ion Batteries Fire?

Research indicates that factors such as physical damage, Overcharging, and exposure to elevated temperatures can trigger a thermal runaway. 

What Causes Li-ion Batteries Fire?

These components include hardware and software integrated into battery packs to monitor vital parameters like state of charge, internal pressure, and cell temperatures.

Battery  Management System

Remove fully charged lithium batteries from chargers and store them in cool, dry places. Before using, especially for wearables, inspect for signs of damage like bulging, cracking, hissing, leaking, rising temperature, or smoking.
