Lithium Ion Batteries Past, Present and Future
The uses and demand for lithium ion batteries continues to grow, which places ongoing pressure on the regulations and regulators to manage and mitigate the associated hazards. This session will look at how the transport regulations have developed and evolved over the years to try to mitigate the risks. We will then look forward to explore possible opportunities to develop a more coordinated and cohesive approach that provides industry with a more stable set of transport regulations.
David Brennan, Assistant Director Cargo Safety & Standards, IATA

An Overview of Enforcement Actions for Regulated Battery Shipments by Air
This session will review basic forms of battery shipments offered by air and general proper shipping methods for such. The focus of the summary will be enforcement procedures for issues of non-compliance with the regulations. As the scope of batteries is so large, the information contained will be strictly a summary and will also provide information on offering batteries for transport as a passenger.
Dennis Juenemann, Hazardous Materials Safety Inspector / Special Agent, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)

Energy Harvesting is Changing the Battery Landscape from Consumer to 5G
When one thinks of things that will impact battery markets, energy harvesting is not typically the first thing that comes to mind. That may have been true in the past, but will change moving forward. Nearly all applications in the world of electronics are limited by an available amount of energy, which makes batteries (or energy storage in one form or another) a critical, yet limiting, system component that is an inconvenient necessity. With this in‐mind, anything that can mitigate storage should have a widespread impact to the entire battery‐based ecology. The emergence of the energy harvesting ecosystem is a fascinating and growing area that yearns to free devices of their batteries and power cords from the smallest IoT device up to large‐scale systems such as a 5G cellular network.
Brian Zahnstecher, Principal, PowerRox

Opportunities for Wireless Power in Next-Generation Devices
There are a number of potential applications for Highly Resonant Wireless Power Transfer (HRWPT) within the medical and industrial device community. WiTricity has developed systems capable of transferring power ranging from milliwatts to kilowatts, developing systems for applications ranging from recharging mobile devices to electric vehicles. These systems are able to transfer power safely and efficiently over several inches and even through a number of materials. This session will discuss both on the technology and principles of wireless power transfer as well as examples of the technology in use to solve pressing reliability, safety, and design issues.
Colin McCarthy, Sr. Manager, Business Development, WiTricity Corp.

Five Good Practices to Minimize Your Lithium Ion Battery Failure Risks
High reliability, energy density and light weight have made Lithium-Ion batteries the preferred choice for battery operated consumer products. The technology is ever evolving using new materials, higher energy density, with normal operating voltages increasing pushing the electrochemistry to its limits. The effort in maintaining a low risk battery system and good quality are always challenging. This presentation will discuss five practices that can help to minimize the risk of a safety performance lapse in your Lithium-ion powered product battery systems.
Jan Swart, Ph.D, Principal – Technology Development, Exponent

Lithium Ion Battery Packs: Exposing Safety Risks Via Testing on a Budget
Lithium ion batteries are pervasive in every aspect of life. Although the technology has matured, it still involves significant safety concerns. Many industries have a strong culture of compliance and testing to mitigate such concerns, however, others do not. The latter sometimes deprioritize testing noting high costs & schedule delays. This can lead to a higher rate of safety incidents. The premise of this presentation is that mandatory lithium battery transportation testing covers many safety concerns. Past this, there are many low-cost, short-duration test options that can be employed to further complete the risk profile and lessen the chance of personal injury, property damage, recalls, and negative brand impact.
John Copeland, VP/COO, Energy Assurance LLC

Next Generation of Voltage Based Battery Fuel Gauges
Improved battery run time and accurate notification of remaining capacity have rendered fuel gauges an integral part of the battery management system of every battery powered personal electronic device. Extremely accurate fuel gauges require the presence of a sense resistor for current sensing as well as programming with the correct battery parameters such as its low frequency impedance and chemical capacity. However it may not be a cost effective solution for low power applications such as wearable gadgets to design in a gauge with a sense resistor. In addition, device manufacturers prefer a simple and easy to use plug and play fuel gauge with minimum to zero configuration. This presentation focuses on the next generation of voltage based battery fuel gauges with no configuration. The gauge is built on the backdrop of an impedance based battery model and uses it to estimate the current rate. The gauge is capable of adapting itself to the true battery impedance and predicts remaining capacity with appreciable accuracy compared to the gauges that have been heavily configured.
Githin Prasad, Battery Algorithm Developer, Texas Instruments

Incomplete Standards Lead to Confusion on Safety
UL, NFPA, IEC, and UN certifications are often pointed to by manufacturers as evidence that their lithium-ion battery design is safe. That sentiment is mostly accurate as those certifications require rigorous testing. However, for a variety of reasons, standards for battery safety leave a few significant loopholes. The loopholes can potentially allow companies to pass the certification tests, but not meet the level of safety that customers need, thus threatening the customers and the whole industry. This presentation will discuss some of those loopholes (e.g. UL 1973 37.3 and UN 38.3 T5), industry challenges caused by the loopholes, and potential practical remedies.
Greg Albright, Vice President of Business Development, AllCell

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Battery Safety Event: What Can We Learn
In August 2016, Samsung released a new smart phone, the Galaxy Note 7. Very quickly we heard about fires starting while the phone was charging. What the regulators and Samsung did from that moments and what was the root cause for the problem? Why did the Samsung battery and the device validation process miss the problem? Attend this session and discover what we can learn from that case and what we should do better.
Shmuel De-Leon, CEO, Shmuel De-Leon Energy, Ltd.

Sorry Travis on the long post.

FYI – Liquid fuel for future computers

Researchers at ETH Zurich and IBM Research Zurich have built a tiny redox flow battery. This means that future computer chip stacks – in which individual chips are stacked like pancakes to save space and energy – could be supplied with electrical power and cooled at the same time by such integrated flow batteries. In a flow battery, an electrochemical reaction is used to produce electricity out of two liquid electrolytes, which are pumped to the battery cell from outside via a closed electrolyte loop.
