    Hi,


    I am considering using the following battery

    http://ultralifecorporation.com/be-commercial/products/rechargeable/ubp001/


    Its not RoHs approved. I heard that Europe does not accept electronics devices if they are not RoHs approved.


    Does LiIon battery need to be RoHs approved? This battery is UL approved and the company says that they sell this battery in europe.

  2. Batteries are covered under a different directive.
    http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2006:266:0001:0014:EN:PDF

    I think ELV and WEEE directives take care of the disposal aspect.

    Cheer

    ROHS is not enforced, and there are exemptions e.g. Control and
    Monitoring equipment (yes very useful :))

    The real issue is if you are sent a form to fill in by a large
    customer which actually asks you to state there is no lead and sign
    it. They are not legally entitled to do that IF you can use the
    exemption but they are free to do it in a business context e.g. they
    are free to insist the product contains no copper...
