Mastervolt Li-ion Batteries Receive new Certification

Publish date:

Mastervolt, manufacturer of power systems and components for the marine and RV markets, completed testing of its lithium-ion batteries with Testing Engineers International, the RV Industry Association approved test lab, to meet UL 1973 standards.

To be included in RV products, lithium-ion batteries must be listed by a third-party agency recognized by the RVIA. The UL1973 compliance confirms that Mastervolt lithium-ion batteries are compliant with all RVIA requirements.
