Lithium-ion battery fires
The risk of lithium-ion batteries
We’re all making more use of battery-powered tools and means or transport, like electric bicycles and e-choppers, which work on lithium-ion batteries. These batteries are much more powerful than normal batteries and last a lot longer. This is a positive development, but there is also a downside: the use of these batteries is accompanied by significant risks.
