Batteries seem innocent enough from the outside. And all battery systems are designed for safety, regardless of chemistry. However, in the case of leaks, corrosion, fire, puncture, or other abuse conditions, battery safety becomes a real concern.
You may have heard the term “battery abuse tolerance.” Abuse tolerance, which is common parlance in the battery industry, describes a battery’s ability to endure tough conditions and use cases. Abuse includes conditions such as over-charging, over-discharging, exposure to extreme temperatures, exposure to flame, and puncture.
Here are three things to consider when looking at the relative safety of different battery chemistries.Read More >>
