Lawyers for Exploding Lithium-Ion Batteries – More Inside
Fire Damage and Injuries
Lithium ion batteries are the go-to rechargeable batteries when it comes to making cell phones, laptops and other handheld devices. This is because of lithium’s ability to hold charge for long periods of time, its low conductivity, its safety profile as well as ease of availability which translates to massive profits for tech companies. Over 500 million lithium batteries are made every year, and they are used in a number of industries such as telecommunications, medical industry, agricultural as well as in the automotive industry. Lithium, despite its popularity, has the propensity to reach its ignition point very fast, which in turn may cause the battery and the connected device to catch fire instantaneously and even explode.

Why and How Do Lithium-Ion Batteries Explode?
Lithium-ion batteries are usually fitted or attached to hardware controlled by software which lets them know when it’s time to get charged, how long the charge will take, as well as the speed and voltage with which it will be charged. Lithium-ion batteries will catch fire and explode if there are software errors, manufacturing defects on the phone, or if the manufacturer uses substandard and cheaper raw material in the making of these batteries. Thermal runaway is the main reason why lithium-ion batteries explode, and this is due to uncontrolled temperature rises during charging or the operation of the device. In addition, lithium-ion batteries are flanked by metallic material on all sides and the added pressure exerted by these material as well as the extreme heat can lead to the formation of gas and consequently, and explosion and fire.
