BSLBATT announced today that 5 new models of home lithium batteries will begin the UN38.3 certification journey.
What is UN38.3?
UN38.3 refers to part 3, paragraph 38.3 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria for the Transport of Dangerous Goods, which is specially formulated by the United Nations for the transport of dangerous goods, which requires lithium batteries to pass a high simulation, high and low-temperature cycle, vibration test, shock test, 55℃ external short circuit, impact test, overcharge test, and forced discharge test before transporting to ensure the safety of lithium batteries. If the lithium battery is not installed with the equipment and each package contains more than 24 cells or 12 batteries, it must also pass the 1.2m free fall test.
Why should I apply for UN38.3?
Lithium batteries used for air transport must comply with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) “Dangerous Goods Rules” and carry out maritime transport, which must comply with the International Maritime Organization “International Dangerous Goods Rules” (IMDG). According to the current regulations, the inspection report for the transport of lithium batteries must meet the requirements of UN38.3 and provide the latest version of the DGR, IMDG rules for the identification of the conditions of transport of goods report, if necessary, should also provide 1.2m drop test report.
T.1 Altitude Simulation: This test simulates air transport under low-pressure conditions.
T.2 Thermal Test: This test assesses cell and battery seal integrity and internal electrical connections. The test is conducted using rapid and extreme temperature changes.
T.3 Vibration Test: This test simulates vibration during transport.
T.4 Shock Test: This test simulates possible impacts during transport.
T.5 External Short Circuit Test: This test simulates an external short circuit.
T.6 Impact / Crush Test: These tests simulate mechanical abuse from an impact or crush that may result in an internal short circuit.
T.7 Overcharge Test: This test evaluates the ability of a rechargeable battery to withstand an overcharge condition.
T.8 Forced Discharge Test: This test evaluates the ability of a primary or a rechargeable cell to withstand a forced discharge condition.
So what are the items of the UN38.3 test?
UN38.3 requires lithium batteries to pass height simulation, high and low-temperature cycle, vibration test, impact test, 55℃ external short circuit, impact test, overcharge test and forced discharge test before transportation to ensure the safety of lithium battery transportation. If the lithium battery is not installed with the device and each package contains more than 24 cells or 12 batteries, it must also pass the 1.2-meter free fall test.
