The potential dangers of lithium-ion batteries

It's something all of us use every day yet very few are aware of the potential dangers - especially on board an aircraft.

All our technical gadgets from mobile phones to tablets and laptops are powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. There is always a possibility they can overheat or catch fire if they are mishandled or damaged. And that can pose a big problem on board aircraft where there will be dozens if not hundreds of electronic gadgets, which is why AvSax has been invented.

Some of these batteries have burst into flames, potentially posing a serious threat to aircraft safety but this pioneering new invention called the AvSax can significantly reduce that danger in seconds. Simply pour in at least 2 litres of water and pop the suspect device into the AvSax bag. The bag's polymer gel inside expands to totally surround the device, instantly cooling it down to minimise the risk by adding further water. If it should still vent, the polymer is designed to absorb the force.
