Testing Standard - UL 1642


UL 1642


These requirements cover primary (non-rechargeable) and secondary (rechargeable) lithium batteries for use as power sources in products. These batteries contain metallic lithium, or a lithium alloy, or a lithium ion, and may consist of a single electrochemical cell or two or more cells connected in series, parallel, or both, that convert chemical energy into electrical energy by an irreversible or reversible chemical reaction.

Testing For: 

Lithium Batteries – long life critical devices - pacemakers, electronic, medical devices; less critical - toys, clocks, cameras, oceanographic applications.
