Are you considering getting an electric bike? It's important to understand the safety standards that apply to electric bike. You may have heard of UL certification, but you might not know exactly what it entails. Don't worry, follow this article to get more details.
What is electric bike’s UL certification?
UL certification is an important factor for consumers to consider when evaluating the safety of e-bike batteries and electrical components. The certification helps minimize the risk of fire and includes a review of the electrical drivetrain, battery and charger. UL 2849 certification is recognition of electrical safety of e-bikes.
"UL certification for e-bike batteries is not just about making them fire-resistant, but also resistant to other forms of abuse or damage. The certification ensures that the battery has an airtight seal, that the battery closure can hold up against impacts, direct heat, light rain, and that the wiring is designed to protect against accidental short circuits. UL certified batteries are also tested to ensure they can withstand overcharging, over-discharging, short-circuiting, and imbalanced charging." ---electrek.co
