PowerRESPONDER Safety Testing Results

Hybrid supercapacitors, such as the PowerRESPONDER product line, are exempt from lithium battery regulatory shipment restrictions and do not fall under lithium battery regulatory test standards. The PowerRESPONDER is a UL (810A) certified supercapacitor product line having passed all required tests for supercapacitors.

However, in order to further establish the behavior of this product line under abnormal and extreme conditions, several safety tests were conducted. The electrical tests included a short circuit, overcharge, and forced discharge tests. The four physical tests performed were: crush, penetration, drop, and thermal shock.

There was no explosion or fire as a result of the extreme conditions or trauma. The crush and nail penetration videos are be viewed here.

The results of these tests lead one to acknowledge the PowerRESPONDER is a safe product under normal usage and has no risk of fire or explosion even under extreme physical damage. A detailed safety report is available on request by sending email to info@pbctechco.com.
