Safety of lithium batteries

The topic of safety in lithium batteries is primary because of their energy density, they are at higher risk of inflammation. 

What to do to ensure safety?

To prevent your lithium battery from catching fire, there are some key factors to consider:

  • The chemistry of lithium batteries
  • The assembly of lithium accumulators
  • The control electronics of the lithium battery

As for the chemistry, there are two elements to count: the decomposition temperature, the higher it is, the less the risk of decomposition of the cell, so we talk about greater safety; the heat that the lithium battery releases, to have more security is better to have the least release possible.

In the assembly, however, a precaution to increase the safety of lithium batteries must be the reduction of possible short circuit. This can be reduced by trying to assemble battery packs with fewer cells all at once.

Finally, we have electronics, important because through it you control the voltage and temperature of the cells. So having effective control electronics is necessary to increase the safety of lithium batteries.

As we have seen, the pro of lithium batteries develops in its great energy potential, on the other hand, however, this energy density must be kept well under control to avoid dangers.

At Galvani Power we are very concerned about safety, both in the workplace and in the batteries themselves, which is why we have trained employees and determined safety standards.
