How Safe Is Your Lithium Ion Battery Device?

Lithium ion (Li-Ion) batteries have been on the market for more than a quarter-century, but they still all too frequently cause explosions, fires and other catastrophic failures. Because this type of battery can produce an extraordinary amount of power per charge, they are found in everything from smartphones and laptops to hoverboards and fitness trackers.

The popularity of the digital devices that these batteries power has skyrocketed, so cheap knock-offs of higher-quality products often include Li-Ion batteries that are unsafe. If you or a loved one has been injured by a lithium ion battery explosion, the experienced personal injury attorneys at DeLuca & Weizenbaum can help you get the compensation you need to recover.

What Causes Li-Ion Battery Explosions?

Given the complexity of Li-Ion batteries, several things can cause them to malfunction, including:

  • Production flaws
  • Inadequate insulation
  • Design flaws, especially in small devices
  • Wear and tear, including dropping the device repeatedly
  • Using cheap, off-brand chargers to recharge the battery
