Accenture PED safety bag

Lithium-Ion battery fires pose a potentially catastrophic risk to flight safety. The Accenture Personal Electronic Device (PED) safety bag is the first to meet the highest standard UL 5800 Performance Level 1, which ensures complete containment of fire, smoke and toxic gases in the event of lithium battery failure. With increasing use of personal electronic devices and rising reports of lithium battery fires in aircraft, this bag offers double protection: the inner bag keeps out flames and heat, while the outer bag prevents smoke from entering the cabin. The intelligent insulation ensures that the outer temperature of the bag does not exceed 85°C. The jury was impressed by the fact that in the event of a burning PED, an aircraft can continue to fly safely for up to six hours before reaching an airport.
