What’s the Problem?

This recall affects the LG Chem Model RESU 10H lithium-ion storage battery that is installed as part of a residential energy solar panel system, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) [1].

“The firm has received five reports of fires resulting in minor property damage,” CPSC said.

The affected batteries are wall-mounted and measure 29.30 x 35.70 x 8.10 inches. The “LG Chem” logo is located on the top left side of the front panel. The serial number begins with R15563P3SSEG and is located behind the access door of the RESU 10H (Type-R) home battery.

The recalled batteries were sold at various distributors of solar energy storage systems nationwide including Sunrun, AEE Solar, Baywa, CED, Krannich, Independent Electric Supply, and Inter-Island Solar Supply, from January 2017 through March 2019 for about $8,000.

If you purchased a home battery that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact LG Energy Solution Michigan to schedule a free replacement.

This recall began on December 16, 2020.

Why Do Lithium-Ion Batteries Catch Fire?

Lithium-ion batteries are energy-dense and contain highly flammable electrolytes. The following situations can lead to lithium-ion batteries catching fire:

  • Overcharging or use of non-compliant charging equipment
  • Overheating or exposure to heat or extreme temperatures
  • Physical abuse (e.g. dropping, crushing, piercing, and/or vibrations)
  • Short-circuiting, battery cell malfunctions, or system faults
  • Defects or contamination introduced during manufacture

When lithium-ion batteries fail they can undergo thermal runaway, which involves violent bursting of battery cells, hissing and release of toxic, flammable, and explosive gases, and an intense fire that can be difficult to put out.
