Third, the battery KC certification product range



1. For batteries with soft package shape and thickness smaller than diameter (cell -- maximum charging voltage above 4.4V, energy density above 700 Wh/L, applied to smart phones, notebook computers or tablet computers), it belongs to the control scope of KC 62133-02(2020).


2. Dry batteries, alkaline batteries, Ni-CD batteries, Ni-MH batteries, and button dry batteries shall be imported into South Korea from November 15, 2020.KC certificate is mandatory;
