A second-generation (Gen II) lithium-ion battery cell puts out 65 Ah and 223 Wh/kg over a long cycle life and delivers 47% more energy density compared to first-generation (Gen I) technology.
Developed by XALT Energy, the 65-Ah UHE cell has a strong cycle and calendar life when compared to similar cells. It is a good candidate for high-energy density applications where space and weight are limiting factors, such as in hybrid and fully electric vehicles, grid storage, and electric marine vessels and locomotives.
“Our Gen II cell delivers a significantly higher energy density cell at a reduced cost without sacrificing battery cycle life. Based on market demands, our team has worked intensively on this technology to bring it to market in less than 18 months,” said Lisa Stevenson, director of cell development for XALT Energy.
The 65-Ah UHE cell will also be used in XALT Energy’s new XPAND XMOD module. The XMOD114E is an ultra-high density lithium–ion battery building block for Energy Storage Systems. The XMOD114E module delivers a specific energy of 175 Wh/kg. The XMOD114E is specifically designed for use in heavy-duty transportation vehicles such as commercial transit buses, as well as trucking, marine, and stationary applications.
