Perfect Protection
with safe storage and transport systems


Our product recommendation

CEMO's new battery
charging cabinet

Protect sufficiently without regulations

The easiest way would be to gather and write down the set of regulations relating to lithium batteries. But what if there are no existing regulations for battery storage? This is precisely the problem: there are no public regulations for the storage of lithium batteries. Nor is it foreseeable that these will be around in the near future. In the meantime, it is well known that lithium batteries can pose significant risks in handling, charging and storage and is also more than clear from the enormous number of incidents of damage.


Causes of fire

Six reasons why it always
damage occurs again.

Mechanical damage

Fall, crushing, water ingress


Incorrect installation, Battery Management System (BMS) fault, incorrect charger

Manufacturing fault

Quality defect, cheap components

Deep discharge during

Winter break, Overload, BMS fault

Incorrect application

Operating error, incorrect stockholding (no FIFO),
wrong charger

Thermal load

Overheating, Solar radiation, external heat source,
heat build-up

Safe storage and handling

Damage or improper handling of lithium batteries is not harmless and can quickly have dramatic consequences. In addition to compliance with safety rules, we recommend the CEMO products specially developed for this purpose for safe storage.

Safety policy:

  • Protection against short-circuit of the battery poles
  • Protection against mechanical damage
  • Proper professional disposal of damaged products
  • No permanent, direct exposure to high temperatures
  • Separate storage
  • etc.

For transport, storage and collection

Lithium batteries are officially classified as dangerous goods and are subject to some transport regulations. In most cases, therefore, tested and approved dangerous goods packaging must be used. Since this topic requires the appropriate know-how, CEMO has put together a selection of suitable products.

Questions that users often occupy with:

  • Are the battery poles taped?
  • What condition are the batteries in? (crucial for packing instruction)
  • Is the focus on fire-protected storage or cheap but compliant transport?
  • Where are the limits of the ADR craftsman regulation for lithium batteries?
  • How can I separate conspicuous batteries if necessary?

  • Battery fire test carried out externally with convincing results

Approved for: new/used lithium batteries (ADR SV230 in conjunction with P903), defective/damaged lithium batteries (ADR SV376 in conjunction with P908), lithium batteries for disposal/recycling (ADR SV377 in conjunction with P909), prototypes (ADR SV310 in conjunction with P910) , as well as small lithium batteries under 100 Wh (SV 188), craftsman regulation (ADR c)

Storage regulations

There are currently no public regulations for the storage of lithium batteries. However this is never to be understood as a "licence to do nothing".

According to the regulation REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) Lithium batteries are “products” and therefore by definition not “hazardous substances”. However, everyone would agree: lithium batteries within a business should be treated and stored as a hazardous substance.

The performance classification of lithium batteries has a significant impact on the storage of lithium batteries: low, medium and high performance. Insurance companies have written recommendations which are considered to be equivalent to regulations, and equally binding.

Transport regulations

Lithium batteries have been officially classified as Class 9 Dangerous Goods (various hazardous substances and objects) since 2009. And that's a good thing!

The legislator has created a special provision for small lithium batteries (<100Wh) by special regulation 188 in the ADR for example power banks, mobile phones or laptop batteries. Their transport does not fall under certain conditions under the considerably more complicated transport of dangerous goods of larger batteries.
