Ideal for portable electronic devices including tablets, mobile phones, laptops, drones, power tools, electric scooters, and toys, the 2 litre Lith-Ex fire extinguisher is the first designed specifically to tackle lithium battery fires. Such fires are often caused by overcharging, overheating, or by physical impacts and damage.
AVD (Aqueous Vermiculite Dispersion) – a revolutionary and non-toxic extinguishing agent, is deployed as a mist which then creates a film over the surface that instantly dries to cool the flames, prevent re-ignition, and act as an oxygen barrier. The Lith-Ex fire extinguisher works even where a powder can’t and is the only one which is safe to use on a lithium-ion battery.
Safe to use on live electrical equipment up to 35kV and also suitable for wood, paper, and cloth fires thanks to its 8A rating, the extinguisher is perfect for homes, hotels, vehicles, marine, aviation, and leisure facilities.
Currently there is no standard for extinguishing lithium batteries. But, the 2 litre Lith-Ex fire extinguisher from FireChief is manufactured in accordance with BS EN3, has a 6-year warranty, and is also CE Marked.
