Ipower Batteries clears AIS 156 Phase 2 and receives ICAT certification for their NMC and LFP range of chemistries for two-wheeler & three-wheeler applications
Ipower Batteries has announced they have recently cleared the AIS 156 (Amendment III) Phase 2 requirement and received ICAT certification for their NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) and LFP (Lithium Iron Phosphate) range of chemistries for their batteries used in two-wheeler and three-wheeler EVs.
The batteries with NMC are approx 1.5 kWh to 4 kWh for two-wheelers and LFP offers 2 kWh to 4 kWh for two-wheelers and 5 KW to 10 KW for three-wheelers & Electric Auto. These batteries were not only checked with numerous safety & performance lab tests but also underwent field trials for optimal validation. The new compliant NMC batteries have completed over 40,000 km on road testing validation for two-wheelers and LFP batteries have completed 60,000 km for two-wheelers and 60,000 km for three-wheeler.
Mr. Vikas Aggarwal, Founder & MD -Ipower Batteries Pvt Ltd was quoted saying,
“This was a major milestone we achieved well in time, complying with the new norms, and ensuring a safe EV ecosystem in the country. We are one of the first to have achieved ICAT certification for our NMC and LFP range of chemistry for our batteries. Our batteries have met the necessary parameters of designing, constructing, and testing, ensuring the safety of the customer.”
In September 2022, the Government of India amended the EV battery testing standards and implemented the Amendment 3 of AIS-156 in a phased manner, with Phase 1 in effect from 1st December 2022 and Phase 2 from 31st March 2023.
The company is committed to providing high-grade batteries which are safe, reliable, and durable while being cost-effective in the long run. The batteries are water-proof, fire-proof, and dust-proof with a longer lifespan. They are very safe and function well in high and extreme temperatures like in India.
