Tesla owner watches in horror as his Model X bursts into flames while charging, igniting more concerns over the electric car's safety. Looks unsafe and dangerous ! - Dave 🤨

The recent information to deal with critical Fires in e-vehicles was the “Red Boxx” method of filled with water. Now there is another option from “Gelkoh GmbH” which is a Fire Blanket but it does involve manual effort - Dave 🤨

“In the event of an accident, the lithium-ion batteries installed in the cars can still pose a danger up to 48 hours later. Because that is the time the battery can still ignite itself if it is damaged in an accident. Since the extinguishing water usually does not reach the installed batteries, up to now there were only two solutions : Either observe the vehicle for 48 hours, or sink it in a container with extinguishing water and thus cause a total loss. Newly developed by IBENA is a third option for a customer specialising in safety around lithium batteries. The damaged car is wrapped in a so-called Rescue Bag, stored for the next 48 hours. It takes just three minutes for two men to pack the vehicle into the Rescue Bag. To do this, the car must first be pushed onto the lower part of the protective cover. The other parts are then fastened with zips and Velcro fasteners.”
