It must always be recognised that whilst safe to use, Li-ion batteries always have a very small risk of thermal runaway, albeit as little as 1ppm or less – and in this regard, a customer should carry out a risk analysis for their specific application, taking into consideration installation (avoiding contact with flammable materials), use (avoiding impact damage or squashing) and maintenance (accessibility in case of need for removal). To further, minimise any potential issue, OE has designed QIKPAC based on an industry-proven battery format, the 18650 cell, as used in electric cars, with certified Li-ion cells from reputable manufacturers, such as Samsung, Panasonic or LG, whose manufacturing quality controls are second to none. The electronics have multiple layers of protection for over-current, over-voltage, over-temperature and all these have been safety tested by independent external laboratories (TUV). The QIKPAC housing is manufactured in a flame-retardant and impact-resistant plastic suitable for its application and end of line testing is carried out on 100% of QIKPAC batteries. Finally, we have had QIKPAC certified by third-party laboratory TUV, to confirm the control circuitry and temperature sensors perform all safety functions correctly, as laid out in applicable IEC and UL battery regulations.
