Al menos 38 people were injured dos de ellas de gravitydad, en un fire in a building de departments de New York City, que pudo haber sido por una batería de iones de litio, la misma causa por la que last June, five members of a family died in an accident in the porteño neighborhood of Recoleta

Two of the injured were in critical condition and five others were seriously injured after the fire that broke out on East 52nd Street in Manhattan, said the fire department, Laura Kavanagh, quoted by the chain. CNN.

On June 23, a mother and her four children died and another 31 people were assisted as a result of a fire originating in the seventh floor of a building in the porteño neighborhood of Recoleta, attributed to the lithium ion batteries of an electric scooter.

The lithium battery is present in a multiplicity of devices, between los que se encuentra sea una tablet, una computadora portátil e incluso hasta los vehículos eléctricas. An explosion, product of a overload, puede darse en cualquiera de ellos.

Si bien los skateboards que existen en el mercado pueden tener distintos tipos de baterías, la más usual es la de litiosegún dio cuenta el sitio La Vanguardia. No obstante, también existen otros monopatines que llevan acumuladores de energía partir de otros materials como lead, niquel o gel.

Lithium batteries are considered the most efficient to provide a large capacity of autonomy. In addition, it is light and small in size. Se cargan entre las dos y las tres horas. However, los monopatines y sus cargadores de litio, exigen, como en el caso de otros artefactos eléctricos que dependen del mismo material para su carga, de los mismos recaudos.

Entre las razones que pueden unçincenar un incidentar, se encuentra las manufacturing failure from the battery. Otro de los factors que contributen a deteriorar las baterías es el excessive heatque puede estar generated por una fuente externa (exposición al sol, por ejemplo) o durante el proceso de carga.
