How to recycle the industrial large capacity LFP cells?

Blog EVPower

The large capacity LFP cells should be recycledin the same way as all other lithium or li-ion cells.

There is no change or difference because of the size of the cells. As with any other cells, you should recycle only cells that were fully discharged and have 0V potential on the terminals.

Follow these steps:

1) Discharge the cell completely to0V.
2) Short-circuit the terminals of the cell - connect the PLUS and MINUS poles of the cell with a conductive wire
3) Dispose of the cells at your recycling center or facility.
4) In some rare cases the recycling company may request some technical datasheets to verify the chemical composition of a cell. In this case please contact GWL and we will be happy to assist you.

Let us make the best use of the LFP technology and if need to be disposed of, let us make the better world by recycling in the most responsible way.

Swollen battery – Use or not to Use?

Blog EVPower

Question:We have a set of battery packs. We have noticed that in one of the packs the cells bulked and changed the shape.Is it safe to keep using the battery pack?

Answer: Generally said if there is any change of the shape of the case of the cells it indicates thatthere is some issue with the cells.It may be a result of some previous event that happened in life of the cells (most frequently as a result of overcharging or overheating) or it may indicate a material failure of the cell that is gradually demonstrated over a period of time while being used.

As a safety precautionwe strongly recommend to stop using any cellsthat demonstrateor any other technical parameters. Such cells.
