Lithium-ion batteries power a vast range of devices we use daily, from smartphones and laptops to power tools and electric vehicles. While these batteries offer convenience and efficiency, they also carry a potential risk of fire if not handled properly.

Lithium-ion battery fires can occur unexpectedly due to overcharging, improper storage, or physical damage to the battery.

Introducing the FLE500 and FLE1

The Firechief Lithium-ion battery fire extinguishers are compact and user-friendly. These extinguishers are suitable for home offices, workshops, and commercial spaces, offering unparalleled protection in case of emergencies.

The compact and lightweight FLE500 is a 500ml Lith-Ex fire extinguisher that is suitable for use on smaller Lithium-ion battery devices such as tablets and mobiles. Simply dropping or crushing your mobile phone can cause it to catch fire. Overcharging and charging malfunctions can also cause your mobile phone to catch fire. Lithium-ion battery fires can quickly exceed temperatures of 800°C – three times hotter than an oven!

This 500ml extinguisher is popular as a home or office fire extinguisher as it is effective but smaller in size.

Similarly to FLE500, the FLE1 lith-ex fire extinguisher for lithium-ion batteries is small and lightweight. Also designed specifically for use on lithium battery fires, it comes with CE certification, is non-toxic and environmentally friendly, includes a 5-year warranty, and is suitable for use on laptops and tablets.

Securing your workplace

Fires in the workplace can lead to immense damage, loss of productivity, and even injury. Ensure your customers’ workplaces are equipped with the FLE500 and FLE1 extinguishers, so they can confidently mitigate the risks associated with lithium-ion batteries and other potential fire hazards.
