Regulations concerning the storage of lithium-ion batteries

Lithium-ion batteries for electric means of transport, like e-bikes, or tools like leaf blowers are bursting into flames more often while they are charging. These fires are extremely intense and cause a lot of smoke and damage.

Status of current regulations
Although battery fires are becoming more common, there are still no European rules for storing lithium-ion batteries. Consequently, insurers are setting their own rules in the policies they offer.
