Flightglobal reported that the United States FAA has laid out conditions to approve the installation of lithium-ion batteries for the Airbus A350-900.
As quoted in the publication:
The US FAA’s conditions have been developed to take account of the possible use of lithium batteries on the type, and follow similar requirements laid down for the Boeing 787 – although the FAA has amended the details in places.
Airbus had initially opted for lithium batteries to power certain electrical systems on the A350 but switched to conventional nickel-cadmium after battery-related incidents on the 787 sparked safety concerns.
