Frequently Asked Questions

What Is A Lithium Battery Fire Extinguisher?

A lithium battery fire extinguisher is a classification of fire extinguisher specifically designed to combat fires caused by lithium-ion batteries. These lithium-ion batteries are commonly found in electronic devices such as smartphones, laptops and electric vehicles. While lithium-ion batteries are generally safe, they can pose a fire risk if they are damaged or overheated.

Lithium battery fire extinguishers typically use a dry powder agent that is specifically designed to smother fires caused by lithium-ion batteries. The dry powder agent works by covering the battery and cutting off the supply of oxygen, effectively suffocating the fire.

What Is A Lithium Battery Fire Extinguisher Used For?

A lithium battery fire extinguisher is specifically designed to extinguish fires that originate from lithium-ion batteries. These are commonly found in electronic devices such as smartphones, laptops, tablets and electric vehicles.

When a lithium-ion battery catches fire, it can release a significant amount of heat, toxic gases and flames. These flames are extremely difficult to extinguish using traditional fire extinguishers. A lithium battery fire extinguisher contains a specialised extinguishing agent, such as a dry powder, that can cool down the battery and interrupt the chemical reaction that causes the fire.

This lithium battery fire extinguisher is becoming increasingly important as lithium-ion batteries become more ubiquitous in our daily lives. We can use these in a variety of settings, including homes, offices, factories, and transportation vehicles, to prevent and control fires caused by lithium-ion batteries.

What Colour is a Lithium Battery Fire Extinguisher?

A lithium battery fire extinguisher is red in line with the EN3 manufacturing protocol with 5% being coloured in light green.
