IEC 60095-7:2019 is applicable to lead-acid batteries used primarily as a power source for the starting of internal combustion engines, lighting and ignition (SLI) of motorcycles and other power sport vehicles. The nominal voltage is 12 V or 6 V.
Test definitions and criteria in this document are for batteries with a nominal voltage of 12 V only. For batteries with a nominal voltage of 6 V, all voltages have to be divided by two.
The other power sports vehicles covered in this document are snowmobiles, personal water crafts and all-terrain vehicles.
This document is not applicable to batteries for other purposes, such as the back-up power sources, auxiliary equipment of internal combustion engine vehicles and e-bikes.
This document specifies:
• general requirements;
• size, essential functional characteristics, relevant test methods and results required.
