Abstract : The patent describes a device for immediately controlling a high capacity battery cell which has developed an internal short circuit. A control gun is inserted into the shorted battery, the gun having coaxial lines the outer of which is connected to a water supply and the inner to a suction. Water is continually added to the damaged cell, with the overflow continually drawn off thereby effectively reducing the heat generated by the short.
