Due to some safety accidents caused by hoverboard, hoverboard dealer stress a lot about hoverboard quality,especially hoverboard battery.Currently Samsung battery pack, LG battery pack, Panasonic battery pack,Sony battery pack and Bofuneng battery pack are most used lithium ion battery pack for hoverboard. Samsung lithium ion battery pack is being asked and used most among these brand battery packs.But do you know 80% of Samsung lithium ion battery pack used in hoverboard on the market is not real Samsung battery pack ?As a hoverboard buyer, how to identify real samsung lithium ion battery pack for hoverboard ?
First,let’s introduce hoverboard battery pack structure. Most hoverboard battery pack for 6.5 inch, 8 inch, 8.5 inch,9 inch and 10 inch hoverboards are made of 20 pcs 18650 lithium ion battery cells.These 20pcs was coupled 10 pcs in series to increase its rated voltage to 37v and two of the 10pcs series unit in parallel model to increase battery rated current to 3-4.4A,so in hoverboard industry, it is also called 10S2P. In GTC hoverboard,we only use and sell 36V 4.4Ah and 36V 4Ah lithium battery pack for hoverboard.
Second,you need to know,Samsung battery pack, LG battery pack, Panasonic battery pack,Sony battery pack and Bofuneng battery pack mentioned above are not made by Samsung,LG,Panasonic,Sony,Bofuneng; hoverboard battery factory only manufacture lithium battery pack for hoverboard with Samsung,LG,Panasonic,Sony,Bofueng 18650 lithium ion battery cells.Because 18650 lithium ion battery cells are widely used in electronic products, even a Tesla electric car is using 18650 lithium ion battery cells as its driving source.So these 18650 lithium ion battery cells manufacturer Samsung , LG etc will not make lithium ion battery pack for hoverboard themselves.So samsung lithium ion battery pack for hoverboard we discussed here is just hoverboard battery pack made of real Samsung 18650 lithium ion battery cell.
I heard some people said that if you want to know a Samsung hoverboard battery pack is real or fake, what you have to do is open the hoverboard battery pack and check yourself. It is not true, for a real Samsung hoverboard battery pack, when you open the hoverboard, you will see the battery manufacturer name printed on the hoverboard battery pack,some hoverboard battery manufacturer may print the Samsung logo on the battery pack, some may not; when you open the hoverboard battery pack, you will see some parameters printed on the battery cell with “Samsung” word. But,a hoverboard battery pack with Samsung logo on the battery cover and Samsung word on the battery cell,don’t mean this hoverboard battery pack made of real Samsung 18650 lithium ion battery ion.Besides,It is very dangerous for people who are not electric professors. Do you have some other ways to identify the hoverboard battery pack is using real Samsung 18650 lithium ion battery cell ? The answer is yes, you can try below methods too:
1.Ask the hoverboard manufacturer or seller to provide original samsung 18650 lithium ion battery cell invoice from Samsung.I have heard some seller said that they are using cheap samsung battery seller from Samsung Malaysia , so they can’t provide original invoice,that’s not true.Either 18650 lithium ion battery cell from Samsung Korea,Samsung China(Samsung has an agent for 18650 lithium ion battery cell in Shanghai,China) or Samsung Malaysia,they can provide original invoice to prove these battery cells are original from Samsung.However,if your order quantity is too small,hoverboard manufacturer may not provide this to you.But if you order a container of hoverboard with Samsung battery pack,the hoverboard seller could provide original battery cell invoice,if they can’t,then it is not real Samsung battery pack at all !
2.Copy the hoverboard manufacturer name written on the hoverboard pack cover and check with Samsung if it is Samsung certificated battery manufacturer.If it is,then this hoverboard battery pack is absolutely real Samsung lithium ion battery pack for hoverboard.As long as we know, there are 3 Samsung certificated battery factory in Shenzhen,China;you can ask your supplier whom it is.
3.If you are or you have an electric professor,then apply the battery discharging test,the discharging time and discharging curve of samsung battery is unique,you can identify it very easily.Or you ask the hoverboard or hoverboard battery supplier do a discharging test for a full charged hoverboard Samsung battery pack under supervision,and ask them to output a discharging curve report,pass this discharging curve report to a battery industry inside,they can know it is a real or fake samsung battery pack at a glance.
4.Ask the hoverboard supplier Can you submit the hoverboard battery to third party like SGS,TUV,BV to check the hoverboard battery pack is real Samsung or not ? if they tell you many reasons open the battery pack may cause damage etc, then you should doubt is it a real Samsung hoverboard battery pack ?
Above method is also suitable to check if the hovorboard battery pack made of real LG, Panasonic, Sony, Bofuneng etc.
It is no problem to ride hoverboards anywhere,quality hoverboard are very safe now with good quality hoverboard battery pack.But if the factories use the fake cells in the batteries, that will cause hoverboard explode or catch fire in a bigger possibility. Also, you don’t want to pay extra money on the fake product.Learn form above methods to identify real samsung hoverboard battery pack, always smarter than your competitor !
