Power battery UL2580 certification standard range

The UL2580 standard covers internal energy storage devices for electric vehicles such as battery cells, battery modules, and battery pack systems. This standard evaluates the ability of batteries to withstand simulated abuse and to protect personnel when abuse creates a hazard. At the same time, the standard evaluates the reliability of charging and discharging parameters of batteries and battery modules within the operating temperature range specified by the manufacturer. However, the standard does not take into account the interaction of other control systems in the electric vehicle with the battery.

The power batteries used in light electric vehicles (such as electric bicycles, electric wheelchairs, electric scooters, etc.) have separate requirements in the UL2271 standard, so they are not within the scope of the UL2580 standard.

In the UL2580 certification of power batteries, all the test items are for the test of power battery packs and battery modules for electric vehicles, and there are no test items for single cells, but the standard also specifically states that the cells must meet the corresponding battery standards. For example, lithium-ion cells must pass UL1642, and nickel-based cells must meet the requirements of cell testing in UL2054.

    I have read the post and it is really very helpful as I have got to know about the differences between the lithium ion and lithium polymer batteries.

  2. The following is for RV’ers and is not intended as advice for users of LiFePO4 battery banks at a fixed location, which likely requires far more charge/discharge cycles than does typical use (non-full-time) RV use. With regard to the claim that deep-cycle lead acid batteries can be discharged to only 50 D.O.D, you might want to contact actual manufacturers of deep cycle AGM batteries. Every one that I have contacted (East Penn, Odyssey and Battle Born) indicates that 80 DOD is fine on and ongoing basis. While East Penn doesn’t recommend 100 DOD, their support department confirmed that one would have to discharge their deep cycle AGM batteries to 0 S.O.C. more than 150 times before the battery was damaged. Note that for both LiFePO4 and deep cycle AGM batteries, once you get much below 20 S.O.C., the battery voltage drops off fairly rapidly to the extent that some device may no longer function properly. In general, the usable range for deep-cycle AGM is from 20 S.O.C. to 100 S.O.C, while the usable range for LiFePO4 is from high teens S.O.C. to around 90 S.O.C. For 100 Amp-hour rated batteries, deep cycle AGM’s have slightly more usable energy content and offer significant benefits for cold weather use and storage, especially extreme cold weather. The primary benefits of LiFePO4 batteries is lighter weight, which is important for large battery banks, and the ability to accept higher charging current, if you install a charger with a proper profile for LiFePO4. (If installing an LiFePO4 at a fixed location, the need for a much greater number of charge discharge cycles strongly favors LiFePO4 batteries.)
