Increasing electromobility through electric vehicles
and bicycles is leading to ever more compact battery forms. As a result, more and more energy is being stored in ever smaller spaces. During energy storage, a chemical reaction takes place within the battery
thatmust not be allowed to get out of control, as otherwise a sudden release of all the energy can occur. Such a release could happen in the event of a short circuit as a result of an accident or incorrect handling.
For this purpose, the Battery Safety Organization (BATSO) has developed criteria that are specified in the BATSO standard and are intended to ensure safe use. It is a test standard that is carried out by test facilities and confirmed by a test seal.
