Lithium Battery Safety Testing Standards
  • ANSI C18.2M, Part 2 ( Portable Rechargeable Cells and Batteries-Safety Standard )

    ANSI C18.3M,Part 2 (Portable Lithium Primary Cells and Batteries-Safety Standard)

    UL1642 (Lithium Batteries )---This standard is used for testing cells. Battery level tests are covered by UL2054.

    UL2054 (Household and Commercial Batteries)--For lithium batteries, UL2054 defers all component cell level testing to UL1642

    UL 2580 (Batteries for use in Electric Vehicles )

    IEC62133 (Secondary Cells and Batteries containing Alkaline or other Non-Acid Electrolytes-Safety Requirements for Portable Sealed Secondary Cells, and for Batteries made from them, for use in Portable Applications )

    IEC60086-4 (Primary Batteries-Safety of Lithium Batteries )

    IEC61960 (Secondary Cells and Batteries containing Alkaline or other Non-Acid Electrolytes -Secondary Lithium Cells and Batteries for Portable Applications )

    IEC62281 (Safety of primary and secondary lithium cells and batteries during transport ) This standard is similar to UN/DOT 38.3 .

    IEEE1725 (Rechargeable Batteries for Cellular Telephones)

    IEEE 1625 (Rechargeable Batteries for Multi-Cell Mobile Computing Devices )

    SAE J 2929 (Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Propulsion Battery System Safety Standard-Lithium -Based Rechargeable Cells )

    SAE J2464 (Electric and Hybrid Electric Vehicle Rechargeable Energy Storage System (RESS) Safety and Abuse Testing .

    JIS C8714 (Safety Tests for portable Lithium-Ion Secondary Cells and Batteries for use in Portable Electronic Applications )

    BATSO (Battery Safety Organization )

    BATSO 01 (Manual for Evaluation of Energy Systems for Light Electric Vehicle (LEV)--Secondary Lithium Batteries )

     

    Is cell testing necessary ? If yes, which standard should you use ? UL2054? IEC62133?

     NOTE: It is highly likely that cells are already tested to UL1642 and certified /listed by a third -party laboratory. Typically, new cell designs are certified /listed by the cell manufacturer and battery certification is the responsibility of the end-user /application device manufacturer.

     

    UL1642

    Cell listing for U.S. Markets typically use UL1642

    For Battery certification, UL2054 applies

    NOTE: For lithium batteries, UL2054 section 2.1 (Lithium Cells) internally references UL1642 for the cell level test requirements

     

    IEC62133

    The European-based IEC62133 is rapidly becoming a global standard

    IEC62133 is required for battery certification through the CB Scheme

     

    ANSI C18

    Although ANSI C18 is U.S.-based ,third-party certification/listing (i.e. ETL Certification) to UL standards is more universally applied for lithium battery safety.

     

          Battery Certification

       Depending on your market needs, one of the following should be considered :

    UL2054 (for general battery safety certification, global recognition and acceptance )

    IEC62133 ( for Europe and CB Scheme certification )

    SAE J2464/J2929 (for Electric and Hybrid Vehicles; other standards for light Electric Vehicles )

    NOTE : Consider using application specific standards for medical devices, power tools,etc.
