Lithium-ion Fire Response

Battery Fire Incident Kits

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Battery Safety Even under the best circumstances batteries can fail. This may be due to battery age, previous damage, or the batteries may be “Grey Market.”  Grey market batteries might not be manufactured in accordance with international standards and thus may have a greater probability to overheat and cause a fire. It has been […]

LIBIK Training Demonstration – Passenger Cabin Scenario

LIBIK lithium battery containment kit in action.

The following video includes a brief demonstration of how to implement the LIBIK (Lithium Ion Battery Incident Kit) in the event of an overheating device inside an inflight passenger cabin. The LIBIK allows a flight crew member (or any other trained, authorized personnel) to safely and effectively transport and contain an overheating electronic device. In […]

Why is a lithium fire worse than a regular fire?

A lithium battery fire.

A lithium-ion battery fire in a controlled environment. Do not try this at home. I doubt I have to explain this to you, but uncontained fire is generally bad. There are numerous obvious exceptions, but virtually every unintentional fire is cause for alarm, both literally and figuratively. Since humans first harnessed the power of fire […]

How to safely store lithium batteries

Lithium-ion Battery Cabinet

I’ve recently discovered that many people store batteries in their refrigerator, presumably because some well intentioned science teacher taught them colder temperatures slow down the rate of energy discharge. While the science behind the idea has merit, most battery manufacturers recommend against storing your batteries in the fridge for numerous reasons related to safety. So […]
