Fire!... NEF Flammability Test

Updated: Aug 24

Flammability and combustibility has been and will continue to be a discussion point for many battery OEMs. Lithium chemistries are under attack in this arena due to their fragile nature in oxygen environments. Influit's sponsors have asked how nanoelectrofuel (NEF) battery systems compare to the adjacent technologies, specifically what happens when NEF is in direct contact with flames and when NEF's anolyte and catholyte mix together. Here's what happens.
