Why Do Batteries Explode?
Lithium batteries vary in all shapes and sizes, and are used in common consumer products, including electric cars, smart phones, electronic smoking devices, and even children’s toys. Though powerful, these batteries contain flammable reactive chemicals, and are prone to instability. If overheated, overcharged, punctured, or otherwise damaged, batteries can produce immense heat sufficient to spark devastating explosions, causing fires and life-altering injuries.
Common causes of explosions include:
- External damage or pressure
- Using incompatible chargers
- Internal cell fault
- High external heat
- Contact with metal, such as coins or keys
