Achieving product excellence is hard with stringent Battery Safety standards

Lithium batteries have become a preferred energy source for a wide variety of products. With high-energy density storage in a compact package, lithium-based batteries are being chosen as an ideal power storage solution, however this had led to an increase in safety hazards associated not only with their use, but with their transportation as well.

As evolving technology and market-demands continue to push batteries to be more compact, battery safety regulations have evolved to ensure they operate as expected while maintaining their physical integrity under a number of environmental stresses.

This lithium battery webinar series will give you a complete picture of compliance to lithium battery safety and transportation standards to minimize the risk of catastrophic failures including design considerations, manufacturing guidelines, causes of common failures, and design for reliability.
