Dutch battery firm Super B has said the launch of its Epsilon lithium-ion battery will “solve limitations” on camping and boat trips.
The company said Epsilon weighs 12.5 kilogrammes and has a life equal to 5,000 cycles – “which is five times more than traditional batteries can offer”.
The maintenance-free battery’s charging state can be monitored using an app and with “a low self-discharge of 10% per year”, appliances can be used even after several months of storage, Super B said.
Epsilon’s “high capacity can power coffee machines, air-conditioning and other devices that could not be powered from traditional batteries, all at the same time”, Super B said. “So people in their camper or boat can watch TV and prepare a pot of coffee while the air-conditioning provides some cooling.”
