Lithium-ion electric batteries (LIBs) have many benefits (e. g., high volts and long-life cycle) within comparison to other energy storage technologies (e. g., lead acid), leading to their own applicability in a wide variety of constructions. Simultaneously, the thermal balance of LIBs is relatively bad and can be damaged by exposure to open fire. This paper presents a good investigation into a fire level of resistance safety test for LIBs and the use of heat sensors to evaluate publicity conditions and estimate the temperatures to which tissue are subjected. Temperature submission data and statistical analysis show significant differences associated with over 200 ∘C, indicating the stochastic nature of the heating curve despite following the testing procedure requirements. We concluded that the current testing procedure can be inadequate for the reliable testing of LIBs, leaving behind an alarming loophole in the fire safety evaluation. The observed instability is definitely mostly related to breeze speed and direction, and fire source size.
