The cabinet has approved draft ministerial regulations subjecting all portable backup batteries (power bank) to the Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI) standard, said Deputy Government Spokesperson Traisulee Traisoranakul on Tuesday (February 4).

 

All power banks, she said, must now meet the TISI standards, safe to be used by consumers and limited in the damages it may cause.

 

“The definition of portable backup batteries means a portable energy storage device that has a rechargeable battery. There is at least 1 channel of electric charge circuit with the output voltage not more than 6 volts, including a backup battery that supports fast charging to recharge electricity and electronic equipment,” she said.

 

She added that this draft ministerial regulation was issued in accordance with the Industrial Product Standards Act and TIS 2879-2560 standard for the safety of consumers.

The only product you quoted above that this applies to is your 2 x portable external power banks, not to batteries inside products or your UPS.

great, now more worthless chemicals from worthless stickers from worthless companies producing real pollution for a worthless product.

 

I will then have to look for the other sticker that says, "That other sticker is real and not fake, so buy buy cheap price good luck you buy now."

Yep so those widgets used to power mobile phones. 

 

Anyone dismissive of TISI should attempt to import some toys for resale.

My comment on the 6 volts was to the poster who said car battery.

 

And I am not dismissive of TiSi.

I initially read it as over 6v as I associate "power banks" with larger devices. The ones like my wife has are more like power "piggy banks"
