Lithium-Ion Battery Extinguishers
The Lith-Ex AVD lithium-ion battery fire extinguishers can be identified by a green band. They are designed for fires involving lithium-ion batteries – examples of typical lithium-ion battery fires include:
- Mobile phones
- Power tools
- E-scooters and bikes
- Energy storage
Lith-Ex extinguishers are available in a range of sizes, from 500ml for smaller batteries like those in e-cigarettes, to 25 and 50-litre versions for large installations and energy storage facilities. The versatility and efficacy of these extinguishers means they are suitable for use in a range of environments including domestic, industrial, transport, waste, marine and energy storage settings.
Lith Ex Li-ion fire extinguishers, as they’re also known, are CE-certified. They contain a non-toxic compound called Aqueous Vermiculite Dispersion (AVD), and they’re suitable for enclosed spaces. It is important that lithium-ion battery fires are tackled as quickly as possible, as these extinguishers are most effective when the fire is in its fledgling stages.
