Tom in Sandia Laboratory, New Mexico told us today that our 40138 cell has already passed 2000 cycles at 4C rating @ 1.5 minutes. He expects our battery to last 10,000 cycles or more, and it still works great! He can't write the report yet, because the life cycle test is not finished, but he will tell people who have interest to know right now. Report is due out when the cells go dead. This might take some time! We don't mind at all. If anyone has a need to verify this news, write me and I can give you Tom's phone number at Sandia Labs.
Our cells have already passed all the destructive testing and other tests that Sandia typically applies to battery cell testing. Tom said that these cells are by far the best performing they have tested yet in their laboratory. A manufacturer in China by the name of AA Power sent him a pack to test and it went kaput before 300 cycles in testing.
This also means our LiFeBATT cells will also work extremely well for "storage applications", so those of you who have Telco contacts, start spreading the word! Solar will also work well with our cells. We are planning a major revision of the LiFeBATT website, in about two weeks. Please visit us then to see the latest developments: http://www.lifebatt.com Our new 1210C Hard Packs will be available in early February and we will have complete specs on these packs on the new website. We continue to support Bob & Gary in their e-bike packs and have granted them an exclusive LiFeBATT Distributorship in the U.S. for these products. You will shortly find their offering on their website: http://www.tppacks.com
Also, LiFeBATT, Taiwan is preparing a " New Products Announcement Ceremony" this month in the Taipei world trade center for all our potential customers, some big potential investors and the Industral Development Bureau (IDB) of theTW Government. It will be the first debut of our "GlobeTRAC" gsm system worldwide. This technology event will be opened to the public and shall get the attention of the world media. We will also install a LiFeBATT system on a vehicle and let customers have the "seeing is believing" experience.
