Some lithium batteries are dangerous because they use an inferior BMS and/or use a different lithium chemistry to the one that we use.
It’s similar to the fuel in the fuel tank of a car containing stored energy. Petrol sloshing around in a cheap bucket is dangerous but protected by a reputable fuel tank manufacturer, the fuel is perfectly safe to use and store. Well designed lithium battery systems are safer than Lead Acid chemistry which can vent flammable hydrogen gas and swell up when overcharged. Lithium batteries vent no gases.
At Lithium Battery Systems we take safety as the primary design criteria and have delivered a solution based on our “Triple Guard” methodology.
1) We have chosen the safest chemistry of lithium cells being Lithium Ferrous (iron) Phosphate (LFP) and we only use prsimatic cells that are encased in a safe Aluminium casing.
2) We electrically protect the system using our proprietary Battery Management System which disconnects, isolates and balances cells to keep them electrically safe.
3) We then place the whole battery assembly into another Aluminium outer enclosure. Lightweight yet robust to protect the entire package from knocks and accidental puncture.
Lithium Battery Systems lithium batteries are lightweight, safe and powerful.
