    Lithium-ion battery fires can reach very high temperatures, typically ranging from 700°C (1292°F) to 1000°C (1832°F). The exact temperature depends on the specific conditions of the fire and the battery’s chemistry, size, and state of charge.

    When a lithium-ion battery catches fire, it releases large amounts of heat energy, which can cause the battery to rupture or explode. Fire can also release toxic gases and hazardous materials, which can pose a danger to people and the environment.

    It’s important to handle lithium-ion batteries carefully and to follow proper disposal procedures to minimize the risk of fires and other hazards. If a lithium-ion battery does catch fire, it’s important to seek professional help and follow appropriate safety procedures to minimize the risk of injury or damage.
