Portable, Rechargeable, Battery Powered Equipment - Aerospace Application
This document will explore the known risks associated with utilizing portable,rechargeable, battery powered equipment onboard aircraft. References will be made to issues that have arisen associated with higher energy density battery systems such as Li-Ion.
Numerous, highly publicized incidents have arisen in recent years highlighting the need to provide guidance on the interface of portable, rechargeable, battery powered equipment with aircraft electrical systems. To date, these incidents have resulted in substantial loss of equipment (aircraft) without the loss of life. It is apparent from these incidents that more information needs to be made available on the safe application and use of a wide variety of devices in the aerospace environment.
