Is there really any difference in Li-Ion battery containment products out there on the market?
Yes, there is.
HOT-STOP 'L' has always gone above and beyond with its product development and FIREPROOF testing by an FAA Registered Laboratory to deliver a solution that customers can rely on, when it matters most!

This core is sandwiched between two outer layers that have a 2080º F melting point and are proven to absorb energy and fire while the military grade zipper technology adds an AIRTIGHT layer of protection by eliminating the escape of toxic smoke, gasses, carcinogens and other emissions. No aqueous liquids required but are optional to meet certain SMS requirements.
