“Batteryuniversity is not only the organizer of the internationally well-reputed Battery Experts Forum which will take place for the 10th time from 5 to 7 April this year. Our key competence is to support developers and users of batteries with the most different individual services in their daily work – a mission accomplished by a dozen highly qualified experts, in electrical engineering, chemists and physicists. These services include in-house trainings, technical analyses, expert opinions and the development of own test devices as well as the performance of standard based or customized test series in our own lab. We provide long-standing experience in testing batteries according to the statutory provisions for the most different safety, transportation and environmental concerns. The accreditation according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 represents a further significant milestone on our way to one of the leading test laboratories for batteries in Europe” Dr. Jochen Mähliß, CEO of Batteryuniversity GmbH, is pleased.
