Prerequisite • Cells must meet the General Requirements of § 1.3 in particular the test requirements Specific Requirements • Each cell incorporates a safety venting device or is designed to preclude a violent rupture under normal conditions of carriage; • Each cell is equipped with an effective means of preventing external short circuits Transport mode ADR IMDG IATA Passenger Aircraft Cargo Packing instructions P903 P903 P965 Section IA • Cells must be protected against short circuit, including protection against contact with conductive materials within the same packaging which could cause a short circuit. • Cells must be packed so that are protected against damage caused by the movement or placement of the cells within the packaging • Use only approved packaging conforming to PG II performance level. Forbidden • lithium ion cells must be placed in inner packagings that completely enclose the cell, then placed in an outer packaging. • complete package must be approved Packing Group II • State of Charge (SoC) ≤ 30 % of their rated design capacity • Restriction: see § 1.9.3 Packagings Drums (1A2, 1B2, 1N2, 1H2, 1D, 1G); Boxes (4A, 4B, 4N, 4C1, 4C2, 4D, 4F, 4G, 4H1, 4H2) Jerricans (3A2, 3B2, 3H2).
