Not sure of the brand, they looked like this https://bmsbattery.com/ebike-battery/708-lithium-ion-battery-18650-battery-cell-2200mah-battery.htmlDetails? Charger failure? Type of charger? Battery brand?
Interesting. You don't see many garages with wood floors. Very possible it was a bad charger. The Nitecore i4 is suppose to be able to sense voltage/battery type and also is able to monitor heat. I've noticed on some websites the Chinese like to clone some of the popular chargers. Not sure where Nitecore chargers are manufactured but if they are built in China you can be sure there are clone versions being sold on ebay.Not sure of the brand, they looked like this https://bmsbattery.com/ebike-battery/708-lithium-ion-battery-18650-battery-cell-2200mah-battery.html
They were taken out of a good quality battery bank.
The charger was a Nitecore i4. But I have a very strong suspicion that it was a fake charger. Because a couple of good cells had failed while charging on it in the past.
Battery exploded out of the charger and across the room, setting a broom alight. Happened while I was out. I reckon I caught it about 15mins into the fire. Luckily it was in the garage.
Took 7hrs to clean the soot off the walls.
I converted the old brick garage into an outdoor studio myself. Floating wooden panels over the original concrete floor. (The silver stuff is insulation)You don't see many garages with wood floors.
Exactly, which would explain why it killed cells in the past.Interesting.The Nitecore i4 is suppose to be able to sense voltage/battery type and also is able to monitor heat.
Interesting that you should ask. Sadly I have no garage. I just now found an aluminum baking pan that will now be used to sit my charger and batteries in. Of course if flaming batteries go flying through the air and land anywhere in my home while I'm not there to notice I'm going to be in bad shape. My home is full of clutter and most of it very flammable. This is why I have a long standing practice of not charging any batteries unless I'm home and awake at the time...Anyway lesson learned. Might use an ammo box in future, and will only purchase batteries/chargers from reputable sellers.
What do you guys use for fire protection?
