Hi esk8 builders,
I have been building batteries for myself, some friends and some people from the forum for two years.
I see that the demand behind li ion packs remains huge. Because of that, I want to tackle it bigger next year
I want to start up a fully professional company. Webshop, mail etc.
I want to sell complete plug and play packs, but also all the accessories to build a pack yourself. I want to realize delivery times of 48 hours on standard packs.
All this is going to work with sufficient preparation.
Now I only have one problem: What if it goes wrong with one of my packs? (I know if you use my pack correctly, so no flexing on stiff packs, do not make a short circuit, do not abuse with heat etc, It will give you no problem and last long).
We have in Belgium “product liability” (productaansprakelijkheid)(I think in the whole EU) on each product we sell. If things go wrong and someone gets hurt by my product, the insurance will ask me money to pay. I understand the liability, but most people are using my packs inside their DIY boards, So I have no view on what they do with my battery.
Someone any idea how I can solve this problem with liability?
