ABYSS® Proudly Maintains Compliance With ABYC Standards


Abyss Battery® strives to make the safest and most reliable lithium iron phosphate batteries for the most demanding environments, that’s why our batteries are only made with compliant rated components and used in applications around the world.

All Abyss Batteries meet and exceed The American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) standard for lithium ion batteries. The ABYC council is an organization that develops voluntary global safety standards for the design, construction, maintenance, and repair of recreational boats.

Because the compliance process is costly and time-consuming, many manufacturers opt out of having their products evaluated, tested, and updated to a published ABYC standard. However, this lack of oversight can often result in product defects, and injuries.


All Abyss Battery®, Inc. Lithium Batteries are required to pass section 38.3 of the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria, to ensure the safety of using products for our end users and for shipping purposes. We are proud of our investment to ensure our products have been UN38.3 certified.

Through rigorous testing, all ABYSS batteries can withstand the following:

  • Overcharging
  • Over-discharging / forced discharging
  • Short-circuiting
  • Imbalanced charging
  • Operation at a maximum specified temperature and altitude
  • Vibration, shock, impacts, and crushing
