Scope

This part of IEC 62133 specifies requirements and tests for the safe operation of portable sealed secondary lithium cells and batteries containing non-acid electrolyte, under intended use and reasonably foreseeable misuse.

1DV.1 D1 Modification to add the following paragraph and note to Clause 1:

This standard is not, by itself, generally suitable for the evaluation of the safety of end-products, as it lacks specific requirements regarding charging, the effect of normal loads, abnormal conditions that should be considered and the physical and electromagnetic stresses encountered in the anticipated environment of the end-product.

NOTE Battery packs with additional features or circuitry, including integral circuitry that facilitates charging, are considered to be end-products.

1DV.2 DR Modification to add the following paragraph to Clause 1 (Canada only):

This standard deals with the covered components used in accordance with CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 0.
