Why batteries can explode and how to avoid it

Did you know that any type of battery can explode, including batteries.

We suggest you find out , what reasons can lead to such a result, so that you can protect yourself and your loved ones. In order for the battery to “pop”, a chemical reaction and a short circuit must occur, which leads to the formation of gases.

Thus, the gases cannot escape and affect the walls of the battery, which leads to a sharp “cotton” and rupture of the battery. . You can see the battery blowing up before exploding.

The main causes of exploding batteries and accumulators include: poor manufacturing quality or shortages, overheating (such as being in the sun or near a heat source), overcharging, physical activity, such as a strong impact or compression, water entering the battery.

In addition, a similar situation may occur if the electrical appliance is under increased load or there is a power surge during charging.

Despite the fact that not all situations can be controlled by you and I, we can still take some safety measures in our power.

To avoid exploding batteries and accumulators, follow a few simple rules:

• do not throw them into fire or heat them;

• do not allow contact with metal objects;

• don't pour water on them and don't knowingly buy substandard products.

Also, don't charge your phone longer than necessary and don't charge disposable batteries.
