Leaf blower comparison-garden tools with lithium ion batteries
Leaf blower comparison-tools with lithium ion batteries. Autumn is just around the corner and brings a lot of leaves and the colorful splendor lies in gardens and driveways, yards and streets. Those who do not want to reach for a rake and broom are happy to reach for a leaf blower with a rechargeable lithium ion battery. Rechargeable devices are now almost powered by rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. We have selected a German and an English leaf blower comparison for you. The German one comes from Techstage, the English one from popularmechanics. To ensure that the lithium ion battery in the leaf blower is safe, please note the following: You should only buy a leaf blower in which the lithium battery has met all requirements and passed all tests. You should reassure that the lithium ion battery has been manufactured according to a quality management system and has successfully passed the UN test series according to 38.3. This is because lithium batteries are Class 9 dangerous goods and are therefore subject to strict regulations. This is what our article is about

As a consumer, but especially as a distributor, you should not only pay attention to the price and practicality of battery-powered tools, but also to the safety of the lithium-ion battery of the tool.
This is because lithium-ion batteries are dangerous goods. With untested batteries or counterfeit batteries, there is a risk of fire, especially in the case of impact, rupture, short circuit, inflation or undercharging. Look BEFORE you buy for equipment whose lithium-ion battery has been manufactured in compliance with regulations.
Ask the distributor for the UN 38.3 test summary and proof that the battery was manufactured under a quality management system.
The distributor is obliged to provide this information upon request. If he does not have it, he can ask the manufacturer for this information, because every manufacturer and subsequent distributor is obliged since 01 January 2020 to provide this information ON REQUEST (including large online retailers). They are not automatically included with the equipment!
Maybe you will find the reference on the website of good distributors, but most of the time you have to ask persistently.
As a distributor, you should definitely ask the manufacturer for this information BEFORE including a device in your assortment.
Because lithium-ion batteries are dangerous goods, they are subject to transport regulations. Basically, transport is only possible with these two confirmations. Protect yourself and your customers from plagiarism and thus ensure safety. Also ask your insurer how you should equip your buildings, logistics or returns departments when handling lithium batteries.
