US CPSC working to improve battery safety standards following Samsung Note 7 debacle

 The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is urging producers of lithium-ion lithium-ion battery or Li-ion battery is a type of rechargeable battery in which lithium ions move from the negative electrode to the positive electrode during discharge and back when charging batteries to modernize their safety standards, in order to minimize the possibility of faulty batteries causing fires is the rapid oxidation of a material in the exothermic chemical process of combustion, releasing heat, light, and various reaction products in consumer devices, in the wake of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 recall may refer to: Recollection, recall from memory Product recall Recall election Recall of Parliament Recall, a classification concept Letter to recall sent to return an ambassador from a country, fiasco.

“Consumers should never have to worry that a battery-powered device might put them, their family, or their property at risk,” advises CPSC Chairman Elliot Kaye may refer to: Kaye (given name) Kaye (surname) Kayes, city in Mali, sometimes also spelled Kaye. the ICAO code for Moore Army Airfield KAYE-FM, a radio station (90.7 FM) licensed to Tonkawa, in a statement may refer to: A kind of expression (language) in language (linguistics) Statement (logic), declarative sentence that is either true or false Statement (computer science), the smallest standalone received by Reuters. Noting the numerous Note 7 incidents and the major recall, the safety is the state of being “safe” (from French sauf), the condition of being protected from harm or other non-desirable outcomes regulator is now working with Samsung and the industry to update the voluntary standards for lithium-ion batteries used in smartphones.

“At a minimum, industry needs to learn from this experience and improve consumer consumer is a person or organization that uses economic services or commodities safety by putting more safeguards in place during the design and manufacturing stages to ensure the technologies run by lithium-ion batteries deliver their benefits without the serious safety risks.”

Notably, the statement from Chairman chairman (also chairperson, chairwoman or chair) is the highest officer of an organized group such as a board, a committee, or a deliberative assembly Kaye arrives at the same time as a recall of batteries for notebooks is expanded.

An investigation by Samsung into the failures claims the first fires were caused by a design is the creation of a plan or convention for the construction of an object, system or measurable human interaction (as in architectural blueprints, engineering drawings, business processes, circuit flaw in the battery’s upper right corner, causing short circuits. In the replacement batch of batteries most often refers to: Energy source Battery (electricity), electrochemical cells that transform chemical energy into electricity Automotive battery Any of several other battery types Battery, 18th, a manufacturing issue involving ultrasonic welding caused a new defect on the batteries, again causing a short circuit may refer to.
