Testing and certification for batteries enable safer use of next generation personal e-Mobility & personal e-Transportation.
Personal electrified technology in the form of light electric vehicles (LEVs) and personal electric transport is transforming the global transportation landscape. Personal e-mobility (x-wheel products), electrically pedal assisted cycles, e-bikes, e-motorbikes, and e-scooters are an emerging use of battery technologies, with many benefits and increasing appeal. Similarly, the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), or drones, is increasing exponentially for both commercial and tactical objectives.
However, these technologies also put people in close contact with advanced energy systems. New and updated safety standards establish a baseline that enables common expectations, safe use of technologies, and easier navigation of international trade. Most importantly, these standards enable a future where next generation batteries and electrical systems can help our society get from place to place in a clean, efficient, and safe way. UL is proud to support retailers and manufacturers by offering testing and certification of the electrical systems for these products.
