Required 8-tests according to the United Nations Manual of Tests and Criteria
Lithium batteries provide a reliable and cost-effective power source for a wide range of electrical and electronic products. However, safety concerns still exist, especially in instances where battery inventories are transported via aircraft. These concerns have led to increased attention to the potential dangers of transporting lithium batteries, and new requirements for manufacturers of lithium batteries and devices powered by lithium batteries. This white paper reviews the testing required under UN/DOT 38.3, as well as other requirements applicable to the transportation of lithium batteries.
