Crush Test


In most instances, lithium-ion batteries function normally: charging and discharging energy without issue. Thermal runaway can occur when something alters the normal function of a battery – by physically damaging it. One test that safety scientists perform on lithium-ion batteries is known as the crush test. The crush test is used to determine how a battery will respond to extreme force — in this case, pressure.
