Why the Concern?
The popularity of lithium-ion batteries has risen significantly in recent years, serving as a primary source of power for smartphones, laptops, power tools, electric vehicles, and e-bikes. Despite their many benefits, these batteries pose potential dangers, such as overheating and self-ignition fire, overpressure, and toxic or flammable gas venting. Overheating and self-ignition fire can happen when the battery is exposed to high temperatures, damaged, or overcharged, which can cause rapid heating and even lead to a fire. Overpressure can cause the battery to rapidly disassemble and result in a hazardous explosion. With the growing need for effective solutions to mitigate the risks of lithium-ion batteries, there is an increased demand for advanced thermal management and safety technologies.
