Lithium Battery Packaging

Lithium Battery Packaging Materials

When it comes to shipping lithium batteries compliantly, labels and marks grab all the headlines, but the real story is in battery packaging. After all, while labels and marks are critical for proper identification of a package’s contents, the package itself is what keeps those contents from causing damage. In the case of lithium batteries and battery-powered devices, you need your package to mitigate a potential thermal runaway event. If it fails, you can have a serious (and seriously expensive) incident on your hands. Depending on the specific batteries and supply chain issue you are trying to solve, battery packaging comes in many forms: fibreboard, wood, steel, plastic, and aluminum. Some of these components may be available off the shelf, but many have to be custom-designed and specially sourced.
