Consumer Battery Testing

Demonstrate the safety, efficiency and quality of batteries

CONSUMER BATTERY SAFETY TESTING

Battery safety, battery performance and battery durability are highly valued today as batteries become more common in everyday use. Batteries are being used in a growing range of consumer appliances such as mobile phones and computers. The safety and reliability of these batteries depends on its quality.  

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

It is projected that by 2020, the average number of electronic network-connected devices owned per person would be 6.5. Consumer electronic products has never been so proliferated. A faulty battery can endanger their users. This could tarnish consumers’ trust and brand image. On top of that, there could also be lawsuit filed against product manufactures for placing faculty products into the hands of their consumers.
