Brought to you by UltraFire, the Lithco LB6 lithium-ion battery fire extinguisher has been put through extensive in-house testing to demonstrate its effectiveness in real-world situations against a new hazard. Lithium-ion batteries, sometimes referred to as lith-ion or li-ion, have quickly become widely used due to their high-capacity power storage and advanced recharging capabilities. Although modern batteries and chargers have many protections built-in, there is always a chance of failure – in the case of lithium-ion batteries, this failure often results in fast, aggressive fires which produce noxious fumes.
Lithium-ion batteries are usually enclosed in plastic casings such as for power tools and walkie-talkies, or sealed into devices like laptops, power banks, and fixed backup units. The carefully developed additive in Lithco LB extinguishers has ideal balance of low surface tension and viscosity to allow maximum ingress through holes and cracks created by the fire, and enough viscosity that it won't drain away too quickly. This allows the additive to make best use of its excellent heat absorption and dispersion properties to help prevent propagation and reignition within the individual cells of the battery.
Please note: It is not currently recommended to use any type of portable fire extinguisher to tackle fires in the batteries of electric vehicle, as the batteries are usually not accessible in current vehicle designs without putting the user at great risk.
