State of charge rules could ban Lithium-ion batteries from air cargo

Manufacturers of lithium-ion batteries may have to guarantee their cells and packs are charged to no more 30% SOC (state of charge) when shipped by air, following a technical recommendation from IATA, the international Air Transport association, which regulates, on among other things, the movement of dangerous goods by air.

The potentially explosive change in regulations was revealed at the Baltimore lithium battery conference last week.
