Li Ion Battery Safety and Abuse Tolerance Report
Safety concerns arise when batteries are abused, used outside the design’s operational space, poorly designed, or beyond useful life. Heat generation and gas generation are the most common responses of batteries to abusive conditions--the most serious consequences occur when the stored energy is rapidly released in an unintended manner, triggering thermal runaway. This report presents the fundamentals of battery safety and abuse tolerance. It discusses materials, cells, and battery system design, manufacturing, applications, and validation, as well as the lessons learned from recent failures.
