Recharge Lithium SoC

Recharge Lithium SoC

   On Wednesday, February 3, 2016, our story “Recharge Lithium in 2016” reported that an Addendum to IATA’s 57th edition of the Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) mandates April 1, 2016, as the date a maximum state of charge (SoC) of 30 percent rule would be applicable for all lithium ion batteries “shipped or contained in or packed with equipment.”
   That sentence should have read lithium ion batteries (UN 3480) “shipped by themselves must be at no more than 30 percent SoC” (not including the words “shipped or contained in equipment”).
   Here is the exact IATA DGR Addendum wording on the subject that was also included in our original report:
   “Lithium ion cells and batteries must be offered for transport at a state of charge (SoC) not exceeding 30 percent of their rated design capacity. Cells and/or batteries at a SoC of greater than 30 percent may only be shipped with the approval of the State of Origin and the State of the Operator under the written conditions established by those authorities. Note: Guidance and methodology for determining the rated capacity can be found in Section of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, 5th revised edition, Amend. 1.”
