Award-Winning Protective Packaging for Lithium Batteries Now Available in U.S. Market


BUNCKER® packaging solution mitigates risk and provides protection in the event of thermal runaway

CHICAGO, May 13, 2024 – Berlin Packaging, the world’s largest Hybrid Packaging Supplier®, is excited to introduce BUNCKER®– a UN-rated packaging solution for transportation, storage and handling of all types and statuses of lithium batteries – to the US market.

Though lithium batteries have increased in popularity due to their long lifespan, high energy density, and relative safety when used properly, the risk of thermal runaway remains a legitimate concern. Thermal runaway is a self-sustaining and uncontrollable reaction that can occur when a lithium battery experiences an uncontrolled increase in temperature, which can lead to a rapid release of hazardous gases, heat, and even flames. Traditional fire suppression methods may not work against a lithium battery fire, which means traditional packaging methods may not be appropriate for the transport of lithium batteries.

BUNCKER® UN-Certified Packaging for Lithium Cells and Batteries is designed for the transport and storage of lithium cells and batteries in all phases of life: new, second life, refurbished, cells or batteries for disposal or recycling, low production runs, prototypes, damaged, defective, recalled, and end of life. BUNCKER® is available in five sizes ranging from small to XXL and has a unique, pallet-based packaging design which allows units to be stackable and forklifted on all sides. BUNCKER® is UN-approved according to P911/LP906, P903/LP903, P908/LP904, P910/LP905, P909 and UN-rated 50A/X/YR.

BUNCKER®’s innovative design has also earned it a coveted iF DESIGN AWARD 2024 in the category of Industry – B2B Packaging. The 2024 competition saw 10,800 entries from 72 countries and is one of the most prestigious design competitions in the world, underscoring BUNCKER®’s exceptional design rooted in safety and ease of use.
