Do Lithium Batteries catch on fire?


Some years ago the media went in to a frenzy over of Samsung’s Note 7 Smartphone and its spontaneously combusting Lithium-Ion Battery.
Images of angry burned skin and melted phones graced our screens and airlines refused to carry said phones on any flights.
In fact many years ago Install A Gadget was on the receiving end of an exploding Lithium-Ion battery from a cordless drill, which resulted in small trailer fire, but fortunately no injuries! Whilst many everyday electronic products are powered by Lithium batteries, there are actually numerous types of Lithium batteries which use different chemistries to operate. The more commonly known are Lithium-Ion as mentioned previously, Lithium Polymer for items requiring a battery that’s much thinner and lighter, and Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) which has been specifically engineered with Electric Vehicles in mind. The chemistry of our RVLSA LiFePO4 battery is so stable that even if you managed to puncture it with say, a nail or screw, drop it, over discharge, over charge, bake, freeze, crush or pierce it with a steel rod, it will still not explode or catch on fire. An RVLSA LiFePO4 battery is also guarded by its own Control System which protects the battery from over charging and over discharging, PLUS we always install additional safeguards to protect the battery before its own control system needs to. So if your RV is on fire, you can guarantee it’s NOT due to your incredibly light weight, efficient, powerful and long lasting new RV Lithium Battery System... ...now quick, get the hose and call 000!




Do you install your Systems under the bonnet of vehicles?


We do not install our Lithium Systems under the bonnet of vehicles. The operating temperatures in an engine bay are too high and can degrade a Lithium Battery and it's electronic components. This means reduced life of the battery and your investment.
