When it comes to the safety of lithium-ion batteries in Liberty Trikes, though, there is good news: with proper use and maintenance, they are very safe. Electric Bike Technologies is jumping ahead of the game and we are now in the process of getting all of our batteries (for all brands) UL certified—which we anticipate will become a law in the next 6-12 months. We are work towards UL certification, which we expect to be completed in a few months time. Until then, check out this very helpful battery safety infographic you can use and share.

Overcharging can cause the battery to overheat and potentially catch fire—this is a rule of thumb for any electronic. 

Overall, the safety of lithium-ion batteries in Liberty Trikes is very good, but it is always wise to follow proper use and maintenance procedures to ensure safe and effective operation. With the right precautions in place, you can enjoy the convenience and efficiency of a lithium-ion battery-powered Liberty Trike without worrying about safety concerns.
