Lithium begins its 12 volt push

A stream of lithium battery solutions from some of the big names in lithium-ion manufacturing and automotive systems suppliers were presented at AABC. And they seem to provide all the answers to the OEM’s emission targets for 2021 and 2030.

Chris Ferhenbacher, from A123 Systems, showed real data that appeared to prove conclusively that lithium-ion with their latest phosphate technology is superior to an equivalent AGM battery, even at -30C.

Lithium-ion battery with automatic flame extinguishment

Researchers at Stanford University have developed a lithium-ion battery that releases a flame retardant if the battery temperature hits 160°C, according to the academic journal Science Advances.

The technology would have implications throughout the lithium-ion battery industry, which has been hit in the last year by product fires and airline shipment bans.
