The Flight Deck Lithium-Ion Battery Incident Kit empowers your pilots in a battery fire situation with new innovations in dry fire suppression.
The FD‑LIBIK is the safest solution for mitigating risks of a thermal runaway event on the flight deck. This fire suppression and containment kit was specifically developed for airlines and offers a versatile approach to handling a lithium-ion battery fire in a personal electronic device (PED).
The FD‑LIBIK is a compact solution that uses CellBlockEX dry fire-suppressant media to extinguish a fire AND absorb toxic smoke and fumes. When a PED, such as a pilots EFB, gets overly hot, it can be placed in the FD‑LIBIK. The CellBlockEX will automatically start absorbing the heat, smoke and fumes. If a thermal runaway happens while the device is in the bag, the fire will be suppressed and contained safely.
Safe. Simple. Effective.
With the occurrence of PED fires on the rise, the need for a safe solution is paramount. The FD‑LIBIK is your best practice solution.
- The FD‑LIBIK contains PED‑Pad pillow(s) filled with CellBlockEX fire-suppressant media. It is the automatic release of the CellBlockEX from the PED‑Pad that extinguishes the fire and reduce the smoke, gases and flammable electrolyte associated with a lithium-ion battery fire. No water or halon is needed.
- The layered fire-retardant materials are able to handle temperatures up to 1000°C (1832°F).
- The CellBlockEX component itself is a very lightweight, inert mineral that poses no health risk, and does not have a measurable shelf life or environmental impact.
- Equipped with hook and loop strips on the back, the FD‑LIBIK is ready to be mounted to any easily accessible surface.
The Flight Deck LIBIK comes with a lifetime warranty.

No battery fire situation is ever the same.
Our options allow you to address varying risk.
A PED is Overheating
When a pilot’s EFB or other small PED gets overly hot, it can be placed in the FD‑LIBIK fire suppression bag using the supplied high-heat gloves. The bag’s layered fire retardant materials can handle temperatures in excess of 1000°C (1832°F). The interior of the bag is lined with PED-Pad fire suppression pillows containing CellBlockEX dry media. These PED‑Pads will automatically release the CellBlockEX in the event of a thermal runaway. The CellBlockEX extinguishes the fire and reduces the smoke, gases and flammable electrolyte associated with a lithium-ion battery fire.
A PED is on Fire
The FD‑LIBIK contains high-heat gloves, PED-Pad fire suppression pillows, and may optionally include a LIBIK Fire Shield Blanket to aid in handling a PED in thermal runaway. Place a PED‑Pad pillow and LIBIK Fire Shield Blanket over the EFB or PED and allow to extinguish. Once the PED fire has been suppressed, it can then be safely handled and placed in the bag.
