battery fire

Polymer current collectors could prevent battery fires

A team of NREL researchers has proposed a new approach to fix lithium-ion batteries’ fire problem. The answer may lie in temperature-sensitive current collectors.


A ‘chemical fuse’ – voltage sensitive polymers in the fight against battery fires

A team of researchers from St. Petersburg say they can build a circuit interruptor that works directly into the current collector. The device operates via chemical reactions and would be thus more reliable than current battery monitoring system approaches.
