The Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI) plans to accelerate enforcement of a legislation on power bank standards, expecting the law to come into effect in May 2020.

 

Power banks have reportedly exploded in flames many times. TISI has put the backup battery under the Industrial Product Standard Act of battery supply, said Secretary-General of TISI, Wanchai Phanomchai

 

“Currently, we are proceeding with legal procedures to enforce the standard act, which means that all Power Bank brands in the market must have TISI certification mark. Manufacturers, importers, and distributor must also adhere to the standard,” he said.

 

“There will be safety tests to make sure that they will not explode into flames if it is over-charged or being dropped from height. In addition, power banks should be able to withstand high temperatures even when placed in a hot spot”.

 

He added that entrepreneurs should apply for TISI certification now, saying that when the law is enforced, they will be able to change the licence immediately.

 

“Although TISI has already enforced this standard, consumers should use it correctly according to the instruction in order to avoid injuries and losses,” he said.

Those that are made in China will most certainly arrive with the new TISI certification mark on them!

Yes, just the same as the Chinese copies of most things into Europe have the EC certification on them.

It was recently reported in the news about a well known Chinese phone manufacturer, who also make A grade powerbanks and an android box, caused an explosion and fire, for its owner in India.. The manufacturer's corporate response was the 12 mth warranty had expired and they accepted no responsibility at all.. 

 

I owned the same brand 20,000 mah powerbank, which had been reviewed as one of best units on the market, with ultra safe texas instrument circuitry.. After 18 mths began expanding like a balloon, time to dispose of it before it also exploded.. You can't always rely on genuine branded powerbanks as being the best and safest..
