Title: BATTERY TERMINALS FOR A LITHIUM ION BATTERY MODULE
Abstract:
A lithium ion (Li-ion) battery module includes a module terminal configured to electrically couple the Li-ion battery module to an electrical connector of an external load. The module terminal includes a conductive component and a sealing shim secured to the conductive component, the sealing shim being formed from a polymeric material. The Li-ion battery module includes a housing containing a plurality of Li-ion battery cells and having an opening through which the conductive component of the module terminal at least partially protrudes. The sealing shim of the module terminal is directly secured to the housing and forms a seal isolating an interior of the housing from the external environment.
