Thermal Runaway of Lithium-ion Power Battery

1.Classification of thermal runaway accident triggering There are many triggering reasons for the thermal runaway accident of lithium-ion power battery. According to the characteristics of triggering, it can be divided into three categories: mechanical trigger, electrical trigger and thermal trigger. The three types of trigger forms have certain internal relations. Generally, mechanical trigger will cause …

What is UN 38.3 T6 Test ? – Part 1

1.Lithium Battery Transportation Safety As a new type of clean energy, lithium battery has been supporting the products that are essential and accessible to people at any time. Therefore, its safety is related to all consumers, manufacturers and transport departments, which has aroused concern from all parties.   Lithium batteries are mainly divided into lithium …

Li-ion Power Battery Crush Test – Part 1

Guided and supported by policies, electric vehicles have entered a period of rapid development. The government and major engine manufacturers have formulated corresponding development plans for electric vehicles. In the future, electric vehicles will gradually replace traditional fuel vehicles. However, after a series of reported electric vehicle collisions, fires and even explosions occurred again, making …

What is Environmental Safety Test of Lithium-ion Battery ?

Lithium ion battery, as well as the overall sample consisting of non user replaceable battery/lithium ion battery and its electronic products. For non user replaceable batteries, they should be installed in electronic products as a whole sample for standard lithium ion battery environmental safety test; For non user replaceable lithium-ion batteries, they can be placed …

Low Pressure Environment and Thermal Runaway

While lithium battery brings convenience to people’s life, its safety is also concerned by everyone. The violent combustion of electrolyte will penetrate the metal plate, and the explosion limit of pyrolysis gas is higher than that of hydrocarbons. The thermal runaway reaction of lithium battery is easy to cause dangerous events, and its high temperature …
