Are Battery Packs Waterproof?

Batteries provide an excellent source of power. They’re reliable, durable, and configurable to meet specific power demands, whether you’re using them for residential, commercial or industrial needs. However, depending on the location, some batteries may be exposed to water, and that can be a problem.

The Risks of Water to Your Batteries

Water can interfere with the performance of your battery pack, and it can affect the integrity of the battery, too. Much of the risk comes down to how much water is the battery subject to and how deeply does it penetrate the housing. An occasional splash of water on the outside of a battery isn’t likely to have any long-term effect on it. However, submerging a battery is likely to cause considerable damage, unless the battery is protected by a waterproof casing of some kind.

When water breaks through the battery pack’s case, it can mix with chemicals inside the battery and destroy its ability to generate power. That chemical-laced water can leak back out of the battery and cause additional problems, too. Metal pieces inside the battery case are vulnerable to the rust that water causes. Lithium batteries in particular are dangerous when exposed to water. For these reasons, it’s crucial to deploy waterproof battery packs in situations where continuous power is critical, even under challenging conditions.
