The standby battery for outdoor base station could not function properly at cold environment for a long time. In order to improve its performance and lengthen its life time, it was necessary to heat the battery and keep warm. This dissertation presented the heating and heat preservation method of 48 V Lead-acid battery pack for base station based on the heating plate and phase change materials at cold environment. Then, the thermal management performances of this battery pack were simulated. The results showed that the uniformity of battery temperature field was increased and the heat preservation process was lengthened effectively. And the pack kept good working condition after continuous heating and heat preservation progress. The method was simple and practicable, and it could be used on the thermal management of lithium ion battery because of its good applicability.
