UL 2849 updated to cover additional technologies

UL 2849, Outline of Investigation for Electric Bicycles, Electrically Power Assisted Cycles (EPAC Bicycles), Electric Scooters, and Electric Motorcycles, for now addresses the most recent critical safety issues to support the safe use of e-bikes, e-motorbikes and e-scooters. This standard helps minimize risks from battery fires/explosions and shock hazards.

Safety standards, including UL 2849, are essential to help ensure energy is governed and used appropriately through the thousands of cycles of e-motorcycle and e-scooter charges and discharges. Designing, sourcing, testing and validating safety of the battery packs and battery management systems are the foundation for these products. As this technology continues to evolve, special strategies or protective circuitry will be required to minimize the potential risk of electrocution during real-world use.
