Breakthrough in Batteries Claimed with Graphene-Polymer Technology
WUXI, China – Inefficient charging and a limited battery life has been the main problems which have restricted the development of e-bikes as well as other e-vehicles. The Wuxi-based battery developer Jiangsu NESC Science and Technology Company claims to have found a breakthrough solution for these issues, applying space technology and Graphene.
The Graphene battery for electric vehicles is able to handle fast charging in less than 15 minutes (800 seconds). According to a report in the China Daily, Jiangsu NESC Science and Technology Company developed this battery which is based on a Graphene-Polymer technology.
Last month bike-eu.com reported that “Graphene-lithium is highly needed technology which is to revolutionize batteries including the ones for e-bikes. The addition of Graphene nano-technology to Lithium batteries brings unprecedented properties as the carbon atoms in Graphene are superconductive.”
Five performance parameters
In the China Daily report NESC’s president, Yao Xiaoqing stated “They improved all of the five performance parameters. These include energy density, power density, temperature, cycle life and safety.
“Our 6Ah battery based on Grapheme-Polymer technology, highlights a breakthrough in electric capacity, performance and life cycle. The ability to fully charge electric vehicles at regular speed in 10-15 minutes and to do so over 1,500 times will help solve fundamental problems for new energy vehicles,” Yao said.
Already 100,000 cells installed
Currently Jiangsu NESC Science and Technology Company is testing the Graphene battery and already installed some 100,000 battery cells in electric delivery bicycles. The new technology comes with a mobile app that displays the service condition of each battery and charging stations.
