ASPİLSAN INR18650A28 Lithium Ion Cylindrical Battery Cell Successfully Completed European Accreditations

ASPİLSAN Enerji, which established Türkiye's first lithium-ion battery production facility and started mass production in June 2022, completed the European accreditations of ASPİLSAN INR18650A28 lithium-ion cylindrical battery cell..

ASPİLSAN Enerji has focused on the European market with the batteries it produces in its lithium-ion battery factory located in a closed area of 25 thousand square meters in Kayseri Mimarsinan Organized Industrial Zone.

ASPİLSAN Enerji has registered the quality of INR18650-A28 lithium-ion battery cells with many international quality certificates. Making a statement about the accreditation process, ASPİLSAN Enerji General Manager Ferhat Özsoy said: "After the mass production of our lithium-ion battery, which we started in the second half of 2022, we fulfilled the international quality standards of the performance and safety capabilities of our battery cells. As a result of the tests carried out in independent and accredited laboratories in Europe, we have registered it with many certificates obtained in a short time.

We have completed the certification process within the scope of the IATA (International Air Transport Association) criteria and the UN38.3 standard, which includes United Nations special transport tests and requirements, in order to ensure the quality and transport safety of our batteries produced for the first time after mass production. A28 battery cells were tested under harsh conditions such as low pressure, thermal change, vibration, mechanical shock, external short-circuit, impact and over-discharge in a laboratory environment simulating the dangerous conditions that may be encountered during the transportation of batteries from one place to another. All tests carried out in independent certification and test laboratories successfully completed. Afterwards, ASPİLSAN A28 battery cells received UN38.3 transport safety certificate. On the other hand, A28 battery cells have been subjected to many safety and performance tests to ensure that they meet the requirements of IEC 62133, IEC 61960 and IEC 62619 published by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission), which was established to prepare international standards on electronics and related technologies. In this direction, the IEC 62133-2 standard, which defines the safety requirements for rechargeable lithium-ion batteries used in portable applications, also includes the Forced Internal Short-Circuit test only requested as an additional test by France, Japan, Switzerland and Korea. Our battery has successfully passed all tests with this test and has been certified.

Similarly, ASPİLSAN A28 battery cells have successfully completed various electrical performance and life tests within the scope of IEC 61960-3 standard including performance requirements for batteries used in portable applications. Thus, its quality has been certified by independent testing and certification organisations. In addition to portable applications, it has successfully completed the tests carried out within the scope of the IEC 62619 standard, which defines the requirements for the safe operation of lithium-ion batteries in many industrial applicationssuch as telecom, UPS, energy storage systems, emergency systems, golf carts, forklifts, AGV-style vehicles, railway and marine vehicles. Subsequently, ASPİLSAN A28 cells added a new one to its certificates in May 2023.

Batemo Published Performance Report of ASPİLSAN INR18650A28 Cell
German Batemo GmbH, the global technology leader in simulation software for lithium ion batteries, has added the results of ASPİLSAN INR18650A28 cells to its battery libraries (BATEMO Cell Library), which are independent cell performance evaluations, based on its tests and analyses. The results show that the A28 batteries perform at a similar level and high performance to the equivalent batteries of the leading cell manufacturers leading the industry.

As ASPİLSAN Enerji, we continue our activities to become a vital battery exporter in 2023 by continuing our efforts to fulfil the country, sector or product-specific testing and certification needs required in the coming period or requested by customers."
