Although products such as cell phones, laptops, toothbrush, Power tools, scooters, electric bikes, and cars provide numerous benefits; they all have one thing in common: using lithium-ion batteries, which can be hazardous. These batteries have the potential to overheat, catch fire, or even explode, resulting in serious injuries or fatalities. To avoid such incidents, it is crucial to have a thorough understanding of the physical phenomena behind Lithium-ion battery hazards and develop effective strategies to mitigate their risks.

Discover the intricacies of Lithium-ion batteries, storage, and fires in our upcoming class advertisement. Learn how to handle and store Lithium batteries safely and how to prevent and manage Lithium battery fires. Don’t miss this opportunity to expand your knowledge and stay safe. Topics: How to avoid Thermal Runway in Lithium-ion batteries, Lithium-ion Battery Manufacturing Safety Assessment, The storing, and transport of lithium-ion batteries safely, keeping them at room temperature between (68*- 77*) in a dry and well-ventilated area.
