I own a company that makes external battery packs. I am curious as to what exact regulations my battery pack needs to apply to, and how to I get it approved to be sold? I need everything to be legal with it, and no almost nothing about what i need to put on it, any warnings, or licenses I need to sell. Please, if anyone knows, or knows where i can find out what regulations/ permits I need to apply for, help me out. Thanks Guys.

The legal, regulatory language and tax code is like a foreign language. You need tp fond some who understand what you need to know.

Are you selling battery packs to OEM manufacturers? If so, they'll tell you what certifications you need. And, those certifications will be based upon their needs for certification.

If you're selling to the general public, as a consumer product, that gets trickier. For starters, UL is required with just about anything that has electricity. But, any one of your competitors will have had to meet those certifications. Just go buy one or two examples and see what certs they have listed.

I, btw, am in the electronics business, I've been selling components for more than 20 years. Including batteries and battery packs. But, I only sell to OEM manufacturers.

Good luck!

Building a Li-ion battery pack begins by satisfying voltage and runtime requirements, and then taking loading, environmental, size and weight limitations into account. Portable designs for consumer products want a slim profile and the choice is a prismatic or pouch cell. If space allows, a cylindrical cell such as the 18650 often provides the lowest cost and best performance in terms of specific energy, safety and durability.

Power bank must only be carried in hand luggage or carried around. It is not allowed to carry power banks in checked luggage. If the rated power is less than 100Wh, power banks can be carried without approval; power banks with the power between 100Wh and 160Wh can be carried after approval of air carrier.

Most battery packs for medical devices, power tools, e-bikes and even powertrains for electric cars (EV) are based on the 18650. This appears impractical but the small cell works well because it is one of the most mature Li-ion formats available, is produced in high volume and enjoys a low cost per Wh.

To be honest, I always thought that anyone were able to carry power banks in checked luggage. Thank you for sharing this info!

Tesla built up the EV battery by adding a weighty measure steel plate on the base that gives additional security against shots from the street.
