Bannière - Batteries

In daily life, batteries and accumulators are now indispensable parts of most portable devices or mobiles.

They can be found on many different markets as varied as Telecoms & Localization, Video, Tools, Medical equipment, Automotive (electric and hybrid vehicles), Rail, Aircraft, Space, Sustainable Energy storage, Autonomous Safety and Professional blocks of lighting, Defense, or Marine.

Besides, these products are subject to Directive 2006/66/EC on batteries and accumulators and waste batteries and accumulators and repealing. This new regulation intends to improve the way the whole recycling industry works, by – amongst other things – reinforcing the restrictions on the use of some hazardous substances (mercury, cadmium) inside the batteries and accumulators placed on the European common market.

In this ever-evolving market, LCIE Bureau Veritas is testing, assessing and certifying the various battery technologies that can be found today on the market: Pb, Li, NiMH, NICd for example.

LCIE BV can also be by your side whenever you need support in your innovation projects or when you need to import products.

LCIE Bureau Veritas sets up a new testing device for batteries

As to extend its service offering for Energy&Systems, LCIE Bureau Veritas has invested into a new testing bench for batteries.

This new testing device is a glove box that has been customized for performing testing against the requirements of the IEC62133 regulation, and most particularly to prepare the internal shortcuts testing.

This glove box allows the users to manipulate products in a safe environment.
It also provides high performance testing with a low maintenance.


The objective is to open a 100% charged Lithium cell, in a controlled and neutral atmosphere and insert a 0.1 mm thick nickel particle.

The cell is then shut and smashed in a press.
