We provide lithium ion battery testing, a technology found in most consumer electronics. Batteries with enhanced characteristics have become crucial in modern society, which has led to the development of a range of batteries, typically in the lithium-ion sphere, to not only power the device, but provide a battery that is long-lasting, reliable and lightweight. The hazardous nature of lithium-ion technology, however, has resulted in safety incidents in recent years that has highlighted the importance of testing energy storage devices.
This has prompted rigorous development and well-established standards to allow for guaranteed performance and safety regarding portable devices such as cell phones, tablets and notebooks to name but a few.
If you suspect that your lithium-ion battery is not performing according to specification or you are a battery assembler that needs to make a crucial choice between two cell suppliers to maintain product quality? Look no further. The uYilo battery testing laboratory is the answer. The laboratory provides accredited testing services to test lithium-ion cell for portable applications (<1kg) and also batteries used in industrial applications such as grid storage applications. The laboratory is
accredited to perform the following standard methods:
SANS61960 (2012) – Secondary cells and batteries containing alkaline or other non-acid electrolytes — Secondary lithium cells and batteries for portable applications.
IEC62620 (2014) – Secondary cells and batteries containing alkaline or other non-acid electrolytes — Secondary lithium cells and batteries for use in industrial applications.
The battery testing laboratory’s unique explosion proof equipment allow the uYilo battery testing laboratory to performance test lithium-ion cells or batteries for portable applications to batteries typically found in stationary applications, as well as motive applications such as golf carts, fork-lift trucks and autonomously guided vehicles to name but a few.
Testing will allow you as the consumer to take control and judge the performance of your product according to a set of criteria as laid out in the standard test method.
Due to the safety concerns increasing, when moving from the low voltage (0-6V) to high voltage (400-600V) the Battery Testing Laboratory’s philosophy is to develop the necessary skills to perform testing on cells (0-6V), then modules (60-100V) and lastly battery packs (400-600V).
