Akasol cylindrical battery ‘boosts driving range’

German battery manufacturer Akasol has unveiled its first cylindrical-cells battery system with very high energy density which it claims can boost the driving range of plug-in hybrid commercial vehicles “by more that 60%”.

The AKAModule 60 CYC battery system was in the spotlight at last week’s Battery Show Europe in Hannover.

BEST in show are fire retardants

When is a battery show not a battery show? When what it features is mainly related to dealing with non energy storage issues like getting rid of heat and containing fires— at least that’s your scribe’s take on the much publicised Battery Show Europe at the Hannover Messe last week. I’ve renamed it— Vehicle electrification systems today or VEST.

And at VEST last week, the hot products were exactly in that ilk everything else was just motors and wiring looms.

Paraclete cuts formation time down to size

Paraclete Energy, a Michigan based lithium ion materials supplier, made a strong push for the acceptance of prelithiated anode materials at the Battery Show Europe last week, with the launch of prelithiated SM-Silicon.

Prelithiated nanoparticle SM-Silicon/PL has a proprietary surface modifier that acts as a protective shell from air and moisture and has an artificial SEI for cycle stability. Not only will customers be able to incorporate Paraclete Energy’s cycle stable SM-Silicon™ into their anode to achieve the highest capacity possible for their batteries, but they will also be able to reap the benefits mentioned an aqueous compatible prelithiated anode in short reduced formation time, said the company.
