Modern lithium batteries require a comprehensive approach to risk assessment and mitigation during product development, and a swift and systematic response when safety concerns arise in the field.
Electric vehicle batteries may have as much as 80% usable capacity when they are no longer suitable for powering motor vehicles. This article explores the post automotive options for these components, and discusses important considerations regarding their use.
Car makers are extending the driving range of the electric vehicle to resemble a gasoline-powered car. This requires larger batteries that grow exponentially with the distance driven.
Latin America remains a region of great challenges in terms of covering the economic and social needs of all of its people while facing daring times trying to accommodate the increasing demand for new and better products and services.
It is a dramatic understatement to say that the world of electronic devices continues to go more portable. The mantra of smaller, lighter, and faster shows itself through the myriad of devices we use as we move through our world outside of traditional work and home environments.
Transported lithium-based batteries are divided into two types: lithium-ion found in mobile phones and laptops, and non-rechargeable lithium-metal used in medical devices and a number of consumer grade AA, AAA and 9V batteries.
Compliance testing can be a very expensive endeavor and also a very confusing one. And when it comes to lithium ion cells and batteries, the expense is magnified by the number of samples needed for testing.
