Break though at lithium batteries - longer service life - lower production costs
Just got to publish a break though in lithium battery technology
Ober 30 years of service life,
Electrolyte is exchangeable.
BMS gives maybe every 10 years a message: please exchange the electrolyte.
Extrem fast charging possible
A car with the new batteries will be shown at the
5th International Symposium of Large Ion Battery Technology and Application (LLIBTA; June 8 - 10, 2009; Long Beach, California). .
Normal car converted - 500km - 5 minute to recharge
70 kWh batteries.
Very interesting. Does this apply to all chemistries? e.g. LiFePO4 and LiPo? Do you know anything about the plans to bring this technology to market?
AFAIK this includes LiFePO4 and LiPO. Now there is the patent application, next step is to have some investors.
I have seen November 2008 a prototype cell at the EUROSOLAR storage conference in Berlin.
The outer shape looks like Kokam, because this prototype was built by Kokam.
