CALCE Battery Webinar Registration Still Open

Samsung Galaxy 7 Note Fire, 2016
Three webinars in to the 15-webinar series, the CALCE Battery Webinar Series is finding success with more than 40 attendees representing businesses like Dell and IBM.

To help the industry, CALCE has been offering a web seminar series to educate and assist practicing engineers faced with challenges on qualifying, selecting, testing and maintaining batteries. Many consumer products rely on batteries as their primary power supply, and lithium-ion batteries have become the standard given their weight-to-power ratio. However, safety incidents involving lithium-ion batteries continue to plague the industry, with widely publicized recalls and hazardous events regularly appearing in the news, such as cell phones, laptops, hoverboards and car fires. Many of these issues could have been avoided with better understanding of the battery physics of failure.

The biweekly presentations last 45 minutes and allow for interaction via email. For more information, please contact Dr. Laura Xing and Dr. Michael Osterman on how to engage CALCE for consulting and testing services for batteries or for interest in upcoming webinar or in-house battery courses.
