Lithium-ion battery hazards and how to avoid them, from DENIOS

Posted by Johann Nacario — November 29, 2023 — Lithium-ion batteries are prevalent in many industries and applications, but they can be dangerous without the users even realizing there is a potential problem. Safe storage provider DENIOS-US has produced a new full-color poster that helps users to recognize and then safely handle defective lithium-ion batteries.

This informative poster alerts users to the most common causes of damage to batteries and then walks them through visual checks, and olfactory tests to identify potential problems.  In-device checks, and identifying issues while charging are also detailed. If damaged batteries are identified, the poster provides an action plan to deal with the problematic batteries quickly and safely.  Posters also include space for users to insert emergency contact information — name, department and telephone number.
