array(1) { [0]=> int(32) } bool(false) Overcharge - UL Xplorlabs




With an abundance of portable electrical devices comes an abundance of chargers. You may have noticed that many chargers look the same and even fit multiple devices. However, using the wrong charger for a device could lead to catastrophic results.

In this test, you’ll examine the impact of two different chargers on the battery system of a hoverboard. In the test below, the hoverboard battery has a BMS but no overcharge protection.
