Dangers of Aftermarket Counterfeit Battery Packs
May 22, 2013 // Electrochem // 0 commentsDownload White Paper 977Ko
The continuing growth of portable handheld devices has spawned a healthy selection of aftermarket battery pack suppliers. Both the OEM and end user pay a price when counterfeit battery replacements are chosen. The quantifiable impact of imitation battery packs to the OEM includes increased safety risks for their ustomers, greater product returns due to non-performing batteries, reduced customer satisfaction, and reduced revenue for batteries supplied by the original manufacturer. This paper details some of the safety issues observed in counterfeit battery packs and presents options to implement a prevention program to control the aftermarket ecosystem.
