Electric vehicles are difficult to extinguish due to thermal runaway. As of now, the only way to put out the fire is to cool the battery. mobile water tubs and fire blankets are the most effective methods currently known. However, it is inefficient because it takes a lot of time and resources. Also, it is difficult to use indoors. Unlike conventional electric vehicle fire suppression methods, 'Troubleshooter' effectively extinguishes fires by directly cooling the battery pack. Includes penetrating nozzle, extension arm and thermal imaging camera. Nozzle ignition and coolant injection are operated by a double trigger.
