Partnership for more flight safety

Hardly on the market, already in the air: The XBAG GmbH introduces the XBAG as a unique solution in combating battery fires and wins TUI fly as one of its major customers.

Flight passengers bring numerous electronic devices aboard today – thereby, they also pose a potential safety hazard if not working properly. Since smartphones, tablets, or notebooks contain lithium-ion batteries, they could overheat and catch fire. An innovative development by the XBAG GmbH renders possible what has long seemed hopeless: fighting such fires quick and simple.


Unlike conventional fire extinguishers, the XBAG is based on a formula that does not only instantly put out the battery fire, but also cools down the extremely hot batteries to room temperature within a short amount of time. Even more, the extinguishing agent does not pose a risk to health and is biodegradable. The bag, which has lent its name to XBAG, serves as heat-resistant storage of affected devices and prevents that toxic fumes enter the cabin. Currently there are two version available – the XBAG cabin and the XBAG cockpit 


The unique combination of effective fire suppression and safe storage convinced the leading leisure airline TUI fly. In fact the airline ordered 132 pieces of XBAGS (84 for the cabin 48 for the cockpit)
