This is the harmonized CSA Group and UL standard for Secondary Cells and Batteries Containing Alkaline or Other Non-Acid Electrolytes – Safety Requirements for Portable Sealed Secondary Cells, and for Batteries Made From Them, for Use in Portable Applications. It is the second edition of CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 62133, and the second edition of UL 62133. This edition of CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 62133 supersedes the previous edition published November 2013 as CAN/CSA-E62133 (adopted IEC 62133:2012). This edition of UL 62133 supersedes the previous edition published on January 9, 2015.
This harmonized standard is based on IEC Publication 62133: second edition Secondary Cells and Batteries Containing Alkaline or Other Non-Acid Electrolytes – Safety Requirements for Portable Sealed Secondary Cells, and for Batteries Made From Them, for Use in Portable Applications issued 12–2012, as revised by IEC Corrigendum 1 issued 06–2013. IEC publication 62133 is copyrighted by the IEC.
This International Standard specifies requirements and tests for the safe operation of portable sealed SECONDARY CELLS and batteries (other than button) containing alkaline or other non-acid electrolyte, under INTENDED USE and REASONABLY FORESEEABLE MISUSE.
1DV.1 D1 Modification to add the following paragraph and note to Clause 1:
This standard is not, by itself, generally suitable for the evaluation of the safety of end-products, as it lacks specific requirements regarding charging, the effect of normal loads, abnormal conditions that should be considered and the physical and electromagnetic stresses encountered in the anticipated environment of the end-product.
NOTE Battery packs with additional features or circuitry, including integral circuitry that facilitates charging, are considered to be end-products.
1DV.2 DR Modification to add the following paragraph to Clause 1 (Canada only):
This standard deals with the covered components used in accordance with CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 0.
