UN38.3 Certification

In order to ensure air transport safety, and to meet customer demand for transport of cargo containing lithium batteries, according to IATA "Dangerous Goods Rules," the relevant provisions of the development of a rechargeable battery operating specifications, namely UN38.3 (UNDOT) test .
My lab has been completed lithium battery UN38.3 complete set of test items laboratories.

Product Range
A variety of lead-acid batteries (lead-acid batteries such as car boot, Stationary lead-acid batteries, small VRLA batteries, etc.)
Various power secondary battery (such as power car battery, car battery electric road vehicles, power tools batteries, hybrid battery, etc.)
A variety of mobile phone batteries (such as lithium ion batteries, lithium polymer batteries, nickel metal hydride batteries, etc.)
A variety of small secondary batteries (such as laptop batteries, digital camera batteries, camcorder batteries, cylindrical batteries, wireless batteries, portable DVD batteries, CD and MP3 player, batteries, etc.)
A variety of primary batteries (such as alkaline manganese batteries, lithium manganese batteries, etc.)

UN38.3 Test Project
T.1 altitude simulation test
  Pressure ≤ 11.6kPa, temperature 20 ± 5 ℃ under the conditions.
T.2 thermal test
   At 75 ± 2 ℃ and -40 ± 2 ℃ under the conditions of high and low temperature impact test, the storage time in extreme temperatures ≥ 6h, high and low temperature conversion time ≤ 30min, Shock 10 times at room temperature (20 ± 5 ℃) storage 24h, The total test time of at least one week
T.3 vibration test
   Within 15min from 7Hz to 200Hz to complete a reciprocating logarithmic sweep sinusoidal vibration, 3h complete three-dimensional direction 12 times the vibration;
T.4 impact test
150g, 6ms or 50g, 11ms half sine shocks installed in each direction three times, a total of 18 times;
T.5 external short circuit test
At 55 ± 2 ℃, external resistance <0.1Ω conditions short, short time until the battery temperature returns to 55 ± 2 ℃ after 1h.
T.6 crash test
9.1kg weight from 61 ± 2.5cm height 15.8mm have put down in the rod cells to detect the surface temperature of the battery.
T.7 overcharge test
In the two times the maximum continuous charge current and two times the maximum charge voltage conditions, the battery overcharge 24h.
T.8 forced discharge test
12V DC power supply battery chained to the maximum discharge current of forced discharge.

Testing to determine eligibility criteria
(A) The test T.1 to T.6, no fire or disintegration.
(B) in the test T.1, T.2 and T.5, the effluent is not toxic, flammable or corrosive substances.
(C) visual observation did not see or exhaust leaks.
(D) not lead to weight loss than those shown in Table venting or leakage.
(E) The test T.3 and T.6, the effluent is not toxic or corrosive substances.
(F) visual observation did not see or exhaust leaks.
(G) not lead to weight loss than those shown in Table venting or leakage
Packaging requirements
1. unless mounted in the device (if installed in mobile phones, cameras, radios, laptops, etc.), cells and primary batteries must be individually wrapped to prevent short circuits and packed in a strong outer packaging.
2. unless installed in equipment, each package containing more than 24 if the original battery or 12 batteries, must also meet the following requirements:
1) Each package must be marked that contains lithium and the package is damaged exceptional measures to be taken.
2) Each consignment must have a random file to illustrate the package is equipped with lithium batteries and broken pieces of packaging Special measures should be taken.
3) Each package must be able to withstand any of the 1.2m drop test, without damaging the battery inside the package or meta battery, which does not change the location of the battery as well as battery and battery (or primary cells and primary batteries) each exposure, there is no leakage of the battery from the package.
4) Unless the battery installed in the equipment, or the gross weight of each package shall not exceed 30kg.

Delivery of lithium batteries and lithium batteries if they meet the following conditions may be non-restricted items (non-hazardous) transport. If any of the following conditions are not met, it should UN3090 or UN3091 collection, transportation of dangerous goods requires the operator
(A). the lithium content restrictions
1. for primary lithium metal or lithium alloy battery, the lithium content is not more than 1g; lithium-ion primary battery for lithium-equivalent content is not more than 1.5g.
Note: The original battery is also called a battery cell.
2. for lithium metal or lithium alloy cell, the lithium content is not more than the total 2g, for lithium-ion batteries lithium-equivalent content is not more than 8g.
Note: The above "lithium content" means lithium metal or lithium alloy anode of the battery with a capacity of the lithium.
As for the lithium-ion battery, in grams of "equivalent lithium content" is calculated by multiplying 0.3 ampere-hour rated capacity. For example: a cell phone lithium ion battery rated capacity is 800mah (800 mAh), then the "equivalent lithium content" as: 0.3X0.8 (ampere hours) = 0.24 g.
(B). in accordance with UN test requirements
Each type of primary cells and batteries, has been tested and found to comply with "UN Transport of Dangerous Goods Manual of Tests and Criteria" Part 3 of all the requirements of paragraph 38.3.
