Mitigating Thermal Runaway

Mitigating thermal runaway is to slow a phenomenon with lithium-ion batteries, in which the lithium-ion cell enters an uncontrollable, self-heating state. Thermal runaway can lead to the ejection of gas, shrapnel, or other particulates. Effective methods of mitigating thermal runaway include thermal insulation and reinforced heat dissipation.
