Horrific Lithium Battery Explosion Caught on Camera.

Firefighters have released footage of an electric motorbike exploding at a home to highlight the “horrific dangers” of lithium batteries.

Lithium batteries can be found in cars, bikes, scooters, laptops, phones, and e-cigarettes, among many other items.

Any other type of fire that the fire service deal with has usually developed slowly, and people are able to get out quickly. However, battery fires are so ferocious and spread so quickly that there isn’t as much time to escape.

It is important that lithium batteries should not be left to charge unattended, or left in the way of exits or in hallways. Chargers should be unplugged when the batteries are at full capacity.
