Energy Storage System Testing – Lithium Ion Battery Testing Services

Electric Vehicle Battery Testing (EV) and Hybrid Electric Vehicle Battery Testing (HEV)


Energy Storage System testing include EV battery testing and HEV battery testing- As the transportation industry evolves, new technologies like PHEV’s and electric vehicles will require extensive battery testing. Sterling can perform validation via Lithium Ion Battery Testing (Li-ion) and Nickel Metal Hydride Battery testing (Ni-MH). Complete battery testing services: Battery cell testing, Battery module Testing, and Battery pack testing, to ensure these components not only perform as designed but do it safely.

From Lifetime verification of battery systems to environmental simulation, we can perform energy storage system testing under virtually any condition. Our state-of-the-art facility has the newest cyclers chambers and testing equipment to handle almost any type of EV battery testing or HEV battery testing requirement, with the capacity to run low voltage cells to high voltage packs.

For those projects that have more challenging requirements or custom setups, our team of battery testing experts can work with you to design and implement protocols that simulate normal and extreme operating conditions.

Battery Recycling

Used batteries have been a problem for decades from both household and industrial waste perspectives. While battery technology has changed a lot, even the most advanced rechargeable lithium-ion batteries may still contain materials that are considered hazardous. Unlike other materials, these batteries can’t be reused directly, so recycling is the only viable solution. In addition, lithium battery recycling reduces the need for new mineral extraction, which is always a win for the environment. Given that, proper handling and disposal of Lithium-Ion batteries is crucial. Sterling Battery can be your partner in a recycling program. We will arrange to pick up your batteries, recycle the usable materials and dispose of the remaining items. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help.

Inspection & Failure Analysis

A battery failure analysis provides you with insights and recommendations to help prevent future incidents whether it is a failure, or the battery is not performing as expected. Our skilled technicians will inspect and evaluate your battery to determine the root cause of the issue and provide detailed reporting on our findings. This helps to prevent future failures and provides insight for improvements.

Whether battery cells, protection circuits, battery-management systems, modules or battery packs, our ISO/IEC 17025 accredited lab can test your products against OEM specifications and established standards. For more information or to request a quote, contact us today.
