How can we stop lithium-ion batteries from causing fire damage?

More and more e-bike and tool batteries are catching fire spontaneously during charging, resulting in intense and nearly unstoppable fires. In some cases, the batteries even explode!

Batteryguard contains battery fires within the safe, preventing potential premises fires. Our battery cabinet doubles as a secure safe, equipped with sturdy hinges, fittings, and locked doors to ensure containment in case of a battery fire.

Tested and proven, Batteryguard is the first battery safe certified for safety.

Significant risks

As we rely more on battery-powered tools and modes of transport such as electric bicycles and e-choppers, which are powered by lithium-ion batteries, we benefit from their increased power and longer lifespan. While this is a positive development, it also comes with significant risks.

When does a lithium-ion battery become hazardous?

Dropping a battery can cause internal damage, potentially leading to fire or even explosion during charging.

What causes a battery fire?

A battery fire is a highly intense and uncontrollable fire that occurs within a lithium-ion battery. These fires are extremely difficult to extinguish because they result from a chemical chain reaction inside the battery, causing it to become extremely hot. The fire spreads rapidly and is exceptionally dangerous. The smoke and gases released during a battery fire are highly toxic, and in some cases, the battery may even explode. The risk is most significant during the charging process.

What causes a battery fire to start?

A battery fire doesn’t spontaneously ignite. It typically begins when the battery has been dropped, damaging one of its cells. This damage can lead to a short circuit, causing the battery to overheat during charging. Compounding the issue is the fact that external inspection often fails to reveal any visible signs of damage to the battery.

What leads to battery fires?

  • Dropping the battery
  • Charging the battery in direct sunlight
  • Using a charger that is not designed for the battery
  • Overcharging

What measures can you take to prevent a battery fire?

Always store your batteries in a battery cabinet! In the event of a battery overheating during charging, a battery cabinet contains any fire and explosion, preventing it from spreading to your premises. learned this firsthand when a bike battery caught fire during charging while nobody was present in the warehouse. Fortunately, the battery was stored in a Batteryguard battery safe, averting a potential disaster.
