New kits extinguish small lithium-ion battery fires

Lithium-Ion Extinguishers

Aug 21, 2023

Rechargeable lithium-ion battery-powered devices are a part of everyday life, especially on a boat. So too is the reality that if their batteries fail, the extremely hot and volatile fire can’t be extinguished utilizing a common handheld marine extinguisher. Fortunately, the new LiCELL™ SK Series Fire Safety Kits from Sea-Fire Marine were engineered for this scenario. They include everything needed to quickly contain a lithium-ion battery fire that has started in a small electronic device before it gets out of control.

Self-contained SK Series Fire Safety Kits are compact and easily stowed. Upon opening the fireproof containment bag, the user has instant access to a LiCELL AVD Extinguisher, heat-resistant gloves and protective eyewear. Six simple graphic images provide instructions for use.

Using an SK Series Fire Safety Kit is simple. After donning the safety gear, the LiCELL AVD Extinguisher is shaken, aimed at the fire and completely emptied. The burning object may need to be turned over to access the source of the flames. The device is then placed inside the fireproof containment bag and sealed with the Velcro flap. The bag is rated up to 1,832° F and will withstand the pressure created by potentially exploding batteries. Smoke and gases may escape but should not ignite.

The LiCELL SK Series Fire Safety Kit is available in six configurations. Ideal for mobile phones, tablets and handheld VHF radios, the Small Kit includes a 15.7″ L x 16.3″ W bag. It’s offered as the kit alone, or with a 500ml or 1L LiCELL extinguisher. The 27.2″ L x 21.3″ W Large Kit will hold bigger electronics like laptop computers and is likewise available as just the kit, or with a 1L or 2L LiCELL extinguisher. MSRPs start at $749.99 USD for the Small Kit and $1,299.99 USD for the Large Kit.

LiCELL is a fire protection technologies company specializing in lithium battery fire solutions. Sea-Fire Marine, under license and agreement with LiCELL, supplies the marine market. More information is at

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive. This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
