Batteries are becoming more widely used. As the use of portable and mobile equipment increases, so does the use of battery technology.  The increasing demands being placed on batteries has meant that the technology has developed considerably with more development can be expected in the future.

Benchmark Your Batteries’ Performance

Make sure your customers’ first impression of your private label batteries is a lasting one. SGS can provide comparison testing of your batteries against national and international standards to see how well you perform against industry accepted performance criteria.
We can also provide side by side comparison data and continued validation on a frequent basis to make supplier selection an easy task. This will prevent batteries that do not meet your expectations from making it to your shelves, and ultimately into your customers hands.

Lithium-Ion Batteries

Over the years, lithium-ion batteries have become the primary source of power for electronics and toys. One of the advantages of lithium-ion batteries is their ability to provide longer operation times when compared to other battery chemistries. This capability can also raise concerns when it comes to safety. Lithium-Ion batteries are more likely to present dangers to the customer when mishandled or not properly manufactured. Two of the primary risks to customers are fire and explosion.

Lithium-Ion Battery Danger Preventions

  • Ensure the batteries and chargers are tested in accordance with an appropriate test standard and are rated for their intended uses
