Charged EVs | Cuberg’s next-gen lithium metallic cells present elevated cycle life and particular vitality
Battery firm Cuberg has introduced some outcomes from Cellular Energy Options’s impartial testing of its lithium metallic pouch cells. In response to Cuberg, “By continued growth of its cell know-how, Cuberg has achieved a near-doubling of cycle lifetime of its cells alongside enchancment in vitality and energy.”
“Cuberg’s first technology of cell know-how was validated by the U.S. Division of Power in 2020 and reached 370 cycles with 80% capability retention with a C/2 charging charge (2-hour cost) in a 5 Ah cell,” says the corporate. “The newest outcomes attain 672 cycles with the identical charging charge and 80% capability retention restrict in a 5 Ah cell format.”
The following technology additionally presents a lift in vitality. “Beforehand, to realize as much as 1,600 W/kg steady energy, the particular vitality of the cell could be round 240 Wh/kg,” in accordance with the take a look at report. “The newest technology of Cuberg cells display 265 Wh/kg at increased discharge charges.”
Cuberg plans to develop a 20 Ah model of the know-how for aviation purposes and to scale up manufacturing of cells. “Cuberg is engaged with a number of clients from the aviation trade who require batteries that obtain excessive vitality density, energy, and cycle life concurrently,” says the corporate.
“I’m pleased with what the Cuberg workforce has achieved at the moment, and I’m equally excited for the highway forward as we work in direction of delivering cells to our clients from our first business manufacturing line,” says founder and CEO of Cuberg Richard Wang.
Cuberg says its cells might be produced with lithium-ion cell manufacturing gear. “This contributes to sooner and decrease value of scale-up of the know-how whereas offering future improve alternatives for lithium-ion gigafactories being deployed world wide,” says the corporate.
