By Samuel C. Levy

This booklet is set find out how to keep away from the injuries and accidents which could take place while batteries are abused or mishandled. it's the first booklet to deal particularly with this topic in a fairly accomplished demeanour available to readers starting from general shoppers to technical experts. Batteries and battery strategies are defined in adequate aspect to permit readers to appreciate why and the way batteries reason injuries and what should be performed to avoid them. every year within the usa by myself, hundreds of thousands of people are injured by way of battery injuries, a few of that are seriously disabling. The tragedy is that such injuries don't need to happen. The booklet is meant to meet the wishes of a various crew of readers: battery clients mostly, battery engineers, and architects of battery-operated gear and buyer electronics. because the e-book is a reference resource of data on batteries and battery chemical compounds, we think it may possibly even be beneficial to these learning the surroundings in addition to to scientific group of workers referred to as upon to regard battery accidents. There are not any necessities for an less than­ status of the textual content except an curiosity in batteries and their secure usage.

Sample text

In the case of large stationary batteries and large lithium batteries, if they are abused to the point where explosions occur, considerable damage may be inflicted on nearby equipment and structures. However, such events are unlikely to occur since operators of large battery installations are well aware of the required safe operating procedures, and such installations are not available to the general consumer. The largest battery the general consumer is likely to handle is the standard automotive starter battery, at least until electric vehicles become available.

Reports from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) 11 give useful information on the types of injuries associated with battery accidents, even though batteries may not have been the primary cause of the accidents. The list of accidents is based on reports from a sample of hospital emergency rooms and was used by NEISS to estimate the probable number of battery-associated injuries in the United States for the year 1991. 0% The reports indicated that about 70% of the injuries affected the body parts normally exposed when people handle batteries.
