What are the consequences if you don’t certify your lithium batteries?

There are some essentials standards and certifications regarding lithium batteries.

UN 38.3 certification

This regulation is the most well-known and allows to safety transport your lithium batteries by road, airway or maritime route.  

It is essential for manufacturing batches from 100 units. Without this standard, it will be difficult to ship your lithium batteries by air and export them.

Lithium batteries are subject to a battery of tests, notably against shocks, vibrations, overcharge, short circuit, overtemperature and impacts. These tests are simulating real conditions of transport and usage of your batteries.

This certification is quite severe in regard to mechanical, shocks and vibrations tests. A wrong manufacturing or assembly of your lithium battery won’t make it through the laboratory trials.

IEC 62133 certification

This standard involves portable and swappable lithium batteries of a system. It aims to protect users from risks which could be related to the batteries’ design defect. Electrical and mechanical tests will be completed.

In order to reduce certifications costs, I recommend you to achieve UN 38.3 and IEC 62133 certifications all at once. Thus, you will be able to cut expenses related to the laboratory certification.

IEC 62619 certification

This regulation involves lithium batteries from an electrical vehicle system, as well as a domestic or industrial storage system. It aims to protect users.

A propagation test is achieved during this certification. The battery’s conception must allow to prevent the thermal runaway of the battery.

Thank you for your attention, see you next week for a new video.
