Discover the good reflexes to adopt when using lithium-ion batteries
Once the classic risks have been taken into account, best practices for using lithium-ion batteries remain relatively simple.
Here is a summary of the measures to take to ensure secure use:
Suitable load area
Ensure that the charging area has constant ventilation, moderate temperature and humidity conditions to avoid extreme variations.
Never store combustibles near a charging battery, as this could cause a fire hazard.
Never charge a battery that shows visible damage. Mechanical damage can cause thermal runaway, with potentially serious consequences.
Use a charger specifically designed for the lithium-ion battery in question, following the recommended voltage and current settings.
Make sure the battery does not come into contact with liquids to avoid a potential short circuit.
Unplugging at the end of charging
It is generally recommended to disconnect the battery once it is fully charged, as overcharging can cause problems. However, certain intelligent BMS (Battery Management Systems), such as those designed by TecSup, can manage the end of charging safely, allowing the battery to remain connected without risk.
By following these best practices, you can help ensure the safe and reliable use of your lithium-ion batteries, minimizing the potential risks of incidents. TecSup is committed to providing high-quality lithium-ion batteries, equipped with the latest safety technologies to meet your needs safely.
