At about 1:20 a.m., a car caught fire at a car charging station on luoqunwei Avenue, Tangwei community, Fenghuang street, Guangming district.?
According to Zhang Mingxiang, the firefighters found that the rescue vehicles were charging at the scene. According to Zhang Mingxiang, the firefighters were at the fire rescue station immediately. The charging station was completely powered off immediately, and then the water was discharged immediately. Then Gongming fire rescue station and Tianliao strengthened unit arrived at the scene. After 20 minutes of intense fire fighting, the open fire was successfully extinguished.
What should we pay attention to when charging new energy vehicles?
1. Pay attention to heat dissipation
The optimum working temperature range of the battery is about 8-25 ℃. Working in this temperature range, the battery has the best performance and the longest service life.
If the battery is continuously charged and discharged at the charging speed of 1C for more than 50 times at an environment above 55 ℃, the battery capacity will be significantly reduced and the battery life will be shortened accordingly. When the ambient temperature exceeds 60 ℃, the battery will have the risk of overheating combustion and explosion due to excessive temperature rise.
Therefore, it is advisable to allow the vehicle to cool down for a period of time before charging when the power supply operation is required after the vehicle is used. Avoid charging in direct sunlight.
2. Lightning protection
Thunderstorms are more likely to occur in summer. When it thunders, do not charge, so as to avoid lightning and combustion accidents.
3. Avoid low-lying areas
When charging, avoid low-lying road sections to avoid flooding of vehicles after rainfall.
Whether in winter or summer, when using electric vehicles, we must form the habit of charging with use and shallow discharge and shallow charge to avoid over discharge and overcharge. At the same time, qualified charging facilities shall be used to charge the vehicle, and the charging power shall not exceed the load capacity of the circuit.
