Importing batteries from China or other Asian countries?
Video guidance about batteries from China & Asia
The importance of battery testing
Pretty much all battery manufacturers are able to meet a specification. However, many of them cannot ensure that all the pieces in all their batches meet that specification.
The process of making cells is, to a large extent, chemical. The key is to control the process. Here are a few examples:
- Checking key inputs (e.g. the electrolyte solution)
- Controlling humidity and temperature
- Keeping foreign contaminants away
(Many issues can also come up during assembly of the pack, but it is closer to a typical electronics assembly activity.)
As a foreign buyer, if you are not closely involved in the production, the key is to test batteries in a way that will detect the most common issues.
Lear now consumer batteries are manufactured
It’s helpful for importers to know how their suppliers are manufacturing batteries and, specifically, when and why they do QC checks throughout the process (if yours isn’t, that’s an obvious red flag).
