The introduction of lithium batteries has brought about significant advancements in the technology and portable mobility industries. These batteries are highly efficient, long-lasting, and quick to recharge. However, safety concerns have emerged in recent years, particularly regarding the potential for explosions in lithium batteries, as evidenced by incidents involving electric scooters.
Lithium, the primary component of electric scooter batteries, is highly reactive to high temperatures. When batteries overheat, chemical reactions occur at an accelerated rate, resulting in the production of gases that raise the internal pressure of the battery. If the pressure exceeds safe limits, the battery can explode.
Furthermore, proper charging practices are crucial to avoid issues with lithium batteries. Using incorrect chargers or overcharging the battery can trigger unwanted chemical reactions that can damage the battery and potentially lead to an explosion.
In the case of electric scooters, it is imperative for users to adhere to the manufacturer's guidelines for battery usage and charging. It is also vital to prevent the battery from being exposed to extreme temperatures and to avoid exceeding its recommended charging capacity. Despite these precautions, accidents can still occur sporadically, resulting in fires and the release of smoke and toxic gases, which pose risks to people and the environment.
The primary purpose of explosion-proof bags is to ensure the safety of individuals in the event of a scooter battery explosion, minimizing injuries and damages. These bags are also designed to uphold fire safety in homes, workplaces, public transportation, and other locations where electric scooters are present.
The bags feature a dual closure system, incorporating a zipper and high-strength Velcro. They consist of multiple layers, including an internal fire-resistant fiberglass fabric, an intermediate anti-shock foam layer, and an external layer of highly fireproof fabric.
Using the bag is straightforward—simply place the electric scooter inside it during recharging or transportation. In the event of a lithium battery explosion, the bag will contain the fire and toxic gases, preventing their spread and mitigating further damage.
