Headlines about burning batteries make the rounds again and again. From smartphones in your pocket to drive batteries in e-vehicles to home storage in the basement, the topic of fire hazards and fire safety is widely discussed. It is undisputed that lithium-ion batteries are fire accelerants. At the end of the following article, you will find out how this works in detail, what needs to be done and what experts think about it. And, to say it in advance: All these fire horror stories do NOT apply to salt batteries. These are absolutely safe!
Renewable energy systems, such as your photovoltaic system, produce direct current (DC). The storage battery in your basement also needs direct current. But the electricity grid in your house or flat uses alternating current (AC) – even the public grid. And everywhere there are converters or inverters that bring voltages and current to the same level.
