On Dec. 14, 2016, we performed an AvSax® demonstration using a Power Bank eight cell 96.8 watt-hour battery pack. A flexible heater was attached to one cell, causing the battery to go into thermal runaway. As shown in the attached video, AvSax® not only completely contained the cell explosion, but it also prevented propagation to any of the other cells in the pack.
