Next-Gen Battery Insights

Exponent provides custom product safety, performance, and industry certification battery testing services.

How does Exponent deliver data-driven understanding for your most formidable battery challenges?

When you're preparing to bring battery-powered products to market, facing performance challenges, or analyzing reported failure scenarios, you need more than pass/fail battery testing. Exponent delivers accurate understanding of what's happening inside your battery, how it contributes to risk, and the margins for success and failure. Even if a battery "passes" a test, that's not always an indication of how well it performed, whether its performance is sustainable, or whether untested factors could still lead to a poor product experience in the market and potential liability risks.

We go beyond pass/fail results

We offer a value-added approach to battery testing that goes beyond basic pass/fail testing. Given that a certified battery may pass a test by a matter of degrees, we offer insight-driven analyses that elaborate on how a battery may fail, risks posed by its failure, and if possible, where "graceful product failure" can be engineered. This type of sophisticated analysis is increasingly important to product companies, battery manufacturers, and their legal teams, seeking to reduce liability. 

Exponent prioritizes broad quality metrics in parallel with industry certification standards to help our clients create safe, high-performing products. Exponent's experience in failure analysis and design evaluation allows us to identify potential weaknesses and design custom battery testing to better understand how a product could fail during use or expected misuse.
