Lithium batteries are the smallest energy givers which are widely used in many of our daily devices. But very few of us know the dangerous facts about the lithium ion battery.
Lithium ion batteries are very small and used in many appliances of our daily life. Their small size, low weight and easy compatibility have made them user friendly energy providers.
When we talk about the dangers of the lithium ion battery we are not talking about the discharge produced by it, that is incidentally too low to harm us since they only discharge partial energy.
We are talking about the complications caused by it, if and when swallowed. The number of children who have been potentially injured or have died by swallowing these batteries has risen since 2000 since many of parents are unaware of the dangers posed by the lithium battery.
It take just 2 hours of time after swallowing the battery to damage the child’s esophagus, which is why it is necessary for the parents to keep these coin batteries away from the children’s reach or keep them sealed away.
