Battery Pressure Testing Mishaps
Testing experimental battery designs and chemical compositions is not without risk. Innovators in this field know that finding the sweet spot of performance, safety, and lifespan is a delicate balance. Optimizing charge and discharge cycles of a new electrochemical battery design is a true scientific feat.
And finding and developing a design innovation in the research lab is only the first step. You’ve still got significant hurdles in product safety testing and manufacturing before getting that battery into EVs and batteries of the newest generation of energy hungry products.
You are battling a host of forces and balancing stack pressure and volume expansion. If everything isn't just right, it can lead to catastrophic failures and thermal runaway.
That’s exactly what happened in this case.
