Battery Abuse Test Site

Battery on Fire

Our dedicated custom-built facility for conducting high-risk battery validation tests. We also offer post-test battery teardown and disposal.

Our facility enables engineering, test and development teams to conduct standard and bespoke battery abuse and safety testing at a cell, module and pack level, in all-weather conditions, to recognised standards. All our tests are supported by high-speed cameras, thermal imaging and gas detection.  We also offer a post-test battery teardown and traceable recycling service to ensure disposal is environmentally compliant and meets safety regulations.
