Safety is the Core Value
From business management to research and development directions, APh ePower adheres to the belief that “safety is the core value” and is committed to developing safe products and creating unique applications and solutions.
As the global energy transition accelerates and demand for energy storage increases, battery safety issues have gradually surfaced. Safety risks mean that businesses will face equipment or workforce maintenance costs and greater property or reputation losses.
Innovative Materials, Providing Absolutely Safe Energy Storage Options
The safety of a battery is not only related to the internal material characteristics, but also affected by the battery management system and the high-temperature environment. The charging and discharging behavior of a single battery cell is easy to manage.
However, when the device capacity is larger, the system must manage multiple batteries at the same time, which is relatively complex, and energy storage application technology and two-way communication with battery performance must be effectively integrated.
Stable, Great Range of Working Temperatures, No Explosion or Combustion
Due to the material characteristics, aluminum-ion batteries have good electrochemical stability, a large potential window, low melting point, high boiling point, and low vapor pressure. Therefore, the working temperature range is large and, even when damaged, punctured, or exposed to atmosphere, it will not explode, combust, or produce a chain reaction. Thus, it exhibits stability with excellent safety.
Passed the UL2580 Annex D Heating, Overcharging, Short-Circuit Test
For safety inspection and testing, in 2020, the products were provided to UL, a major third-party testing organization in the USA to undergo heating, overcharge, and short-circuit tests using the UL2580 Annex D standards.We expect that in 2021 other testing of UL2580 Annex D will be completed and then the certification will be obtained.
In the future, it is planned to carry out tests for different applications and national standards, as well as promote the formulation of exclusive safety regulations for aluminum-ion batteries.
