We Should Have Already Had This: The Lithium-Ion Battery With Built-In Fire Suppression


On October 22, 2020, yesterday, Dexter Johnson posted The Lithium-Ion Battery With Built-In Fire Suppression. Within this topic, Dexter Johnson regards a Stanford University research team and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (its former name was the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center[1]). Johnson stated:

Now [Yi] Cui and his research team, in collaboration with SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, have offered some exciting new capabilities for lithium-ion batteries based around a new polymer material they are using in the current collectors for them. The researchers claim this new design to current collectors increases efficiency in Li-ion batteries and reduces the risk of fires associated with these batteries.[2]

 Johnson was saying this: fires are a current Li-ion battery threat that has been realized, but a new design can secure client use-case safety, and this required this battery redesigned. As this technology approaches marketplace entry points, this shall confront Li-ion battery businesses: client safety vs continuing legacy technology use. On, TheEarthAwards posted a January 7, 2019 article: The Common Uses Of Lithium-Ion Batteries. Regarding lithium-ion battery uses, TheEarthAwards listed the following: portable power packs, uninterrupted power supply (UPS), but electric vehicles; but marine vehicles; but personal mobility; but solar energy storage.[3] Of these use-cases, fire can compromise all; but a common battery fire-retardant is an acceptable investment. In history, there is wisdom regarding being the winner: of a battle involving fire.

            During ancient times, probably Solomon, king of Israel, invented proverb wisdom, and this wisdom regarding self-control lacked. Solomon, king of Israel, stated, “Like a maniac shooting flaming arrows of death is one who deceives their neighbor and says, “I was only joking”” (Psalm 26:18-19, NIV). Solomon was saying this: by a man’s act, let us determine his character. By many, large companies building used fire-prone technology is dangerous. But using a comic selling point, a humorous advertisement: where people talk insane Old Testament foolishness, is business failure. Since this replacement technology is being researched, but developed, I recommend a ‘marginal quality management:’ rather than a universal quality system, increment one quality test per technology. Thus, the three battery components Johnson displayed, standard current collectors, redesigned current collectors, and the flame retardant: to termination that is, failure, will probably be isolated, but then tested.
