New AllCell Technology Makes Li-ion Batteries Safer
CHICAGO, USA – AllCell Technologies developed a new technique to prevent thermal runaway propagation in electrochemical devices such as lithium-ion batteries in e-bikes. One of the benefits of passive thermal management is the ability to operate even when the vehicle is turned off.
Whether the e-bike is parked all day in the scorching sun, AllCell’s PCM composite can protect the expensive lithium-ion battery cells from overheating, dramatically extending battery life.
Through over a decade of research and development, AllCell has developed a proprietary composite material composed of a conductive matrix impregnated with various PCMs that extends the cycle life of lithium ion cells and can prevent the propagation of thermal runaway, a critical step in improving the safety of lithium-ion batteries.
Several incidents involving electric vehicle batteries have highlighted both the importance of battery safety and thermal management as well as the inadequacy of conventional thermal management strategies. According to AllCell Technologies manufacturers of smaller electric vehicles such as e-bikes struggle to manage the thermal demands of increasingly energy dense batteries with high discharge rates.
AllCell’s passive technology requires no power to operate and has no moving parts, paving the way for the industry to improve battery performance while simultaneously reducing battery cost.
