Whenever you are importing or exporting lithium batteries, it is essential to adhere to the IEC 62133-2 standard. This standard applies to all types of lithium batteries, including those used in laptops, cell phones, Drones, E-bikes, Electric Scooters, and electric vehicles.
The IEC 62133-2 standard covers the following aspects of lithium battery safety:
1. Design and manufacture
The IEC 62133-2 standard covers the design, manufacture, and assembly of lithium batteries. It includes requirements for the materials used in battery construction and the process of assembling the battery cells into a complete battery pack.
If a battery pack includes multiple cells, the standard requires that the cells be electrically and thermally connected in a way that prevents any one cell from becoming overloaded. To ensure that all manufacturers of lithium batteries adhere to this requirement, the IEC 62133-2 standard includes a requirement for third-party certification of battery packs. All SPP batteries come fully certified with the CCC mark.
The tests are important to assess the safety of the battery under a variety of conditions, including overcharging, short-circuiting, exposure to fire, and impact.
According to the standard, you must conduct periodic retesting of batteries. Below are some of the tests taken to ensure that SPP batteries conform to the IEC 62133 2 standards:
- Overcharge test
- Short-circuit test
- Exposure to fire test
- Impact test
The IEC 62133-2 standard includes requirements for the transportation of lithium batteries. To adhere to this requirement the lithium battery manufacturer must ensure that:
Packaging of Lithium Batteries is safe
You do this by using specially designed packaging that is able to withstand the rigors of transportation. The test is done by dropping the package containing the lithium batteries onto a hard surface from a specified height.
Labeling of Lithium Batteries
You do this by labeling the package containing the lithium batteries with the proper shipping information. This includes the UN number, the proper shipping name, and the class of the lithium battery. We follow this procedure to the letter to make sure that our customers are never in violation of the IEC 62133-2 standard.
Documentation for Lithium Batteries
You must provide the necessary documentation when shipping the lithium batteries. This includes a packing list, as well as a certificate of compliance. The packing list must include the type and quantity of lithium batteries being shipped. It must also include the proper shipping information.
The IEC 62133-2 standard includes requirements for the recycling of lithium batteries. It also covers the environmental protection of the process. This is done in a way that will minimize the risk to workers and the environment. We ensure that recycled SPP batteries always meet the IEC 62133-2 standard for recycling.
It is important to Adhere to the IEC 62133-2 standard. This will helps in ensuring the safety of lithium batteries. The IEC 62133-2 standard is available from the IEC website. You can also contact us for more information.
