A breakthrough technology delivers 10X power and 15-min fast charging in cold environments as low as -30oC
Large Batch Production of All-Climate Battery Cells
We fabricated thousands of prismatic and pouch cell in 10 to 20 Ah capacity to demonstrate viability for mass production and in-vehicle testing.
For ACB cells to enjoy a dramatic power boost at low temperatures, some activation time and energy (or charge) consumption are required. Currently <15 sec and <3% of cell energy is consumed during activation.
World's First Fast Rechargeable Battery at Low Temperature
We have demonstrated >10X fast charging of ACB cells compared to state-of-the-art Li-ion cells at -30oC without sacrificing life.
