Lithium-ion batteries are prevalent in many industries and applications, but they can be dangerous without the users even realizing there is a potential problem. DENIOS-US has produced a new full-color poster that helps users to recognize and then safely handle defective lithium-ion batteries.
This poster (below) alerts users to the most common causes of damage to batteries and then walks them through visual checks, and olfactory tests to identify potential problems. In-device checks, and identifying issues while charging are also detailed.
If damaged batteries are identified, the poster provides an action plan to deal with the problematic batteries quickly and safely. Posters also include space for users to insert emergency contact information – name/departments and telephone number. Posters and educational contents such as checklists, whitepapers, and more are available free by request at bit.ly/li-ion-battery-poster.
DENIOS-US manufactures a full line of products for the safe storage, charging, and testing of lithium-ion batteries. s. Products shown on the poster include the Ion-Charge-90 a fire-safe cabinet for charging and storing batteries, and the Li-Ion Station for the safe storage of damaged or defective batteries.
