Reasons Why Batteries Explode

Battery-related fires and explosions are due to a combination of factors, mainly related to their chemical composition, design and usage. Primary reasons include:

Overheating

Batteries can overheat when they are overcharged/discharged or subjected to high ambient temperatures. Excessive heat can lead to thermal runaway, a self-sustaining, uncontrollable increase in temperature, which may result in a fire or explosion.

Short Circuits

If the positive and negative terminals of a battery come into direct contact or are connected by a conductive material, a short circuit occurs. This can lead to a rapid discharge of energy, generating heat and potentially causing a fire.

Manufacturing Defects

Faulty manufacturing processes or the use of substandard materials in battery production can create weak points or vulnerabilities in the battery’s structure, making it more prone to failure and thermal events.

Age and Wear

Over time, batteries degrade and become less stable. As they age, their internal components can break down, increasing the risk of thermal events.

Inadequate Ventilation

In enclosed spaces, gases generated during battery malfunctions may accumulate, increasing the risk of an explosion.

Puncture or Physical Damage

When a battery is punctured, crushed, or physically damaged, the separator between its positive and negative electrodes can breach, leading to a short circuit and potentially a fire or explosion.

Chemical Reactions

The chemical components of a battery can undergo reactions that generate heat and gas. For instance, in lithium-ion batteries, the decomposition of the electrolyte or the formation of lithium metal can lead to thermal runaway and, ultimately, fires or explosions.

Overcharging or Discharging

Charging a battery beyond its recommended voltage or discharging it to extremely low levels can cause it to become unstable and potentially lead to thermal events.

External Heat Sources

Exposure to external heat sources, such as direct sunlight or nearby flames, can cause a battery to heat up and potentially catch fire.
