Battery Compliance Certification

The CTIA Certification program for battery compliance sets the industry standard for the quality and reliability of mobile device batteries. It helps device operators and their suppliers to validate lithium ion batteries’ compliance with the IEEE Standard for Rechargeable Batteries for Cellular Telephones (IEEE Std 1725™) and the IEEE Standard for Rechargeable Batteries for Multi-Cell Mobile Computing Devices (IEEE Std 1625™).
