New Japanese battery electric vehicles make cheaper and safer
Much of the cost of electric vehicles is formed due to the batteries. And the biggest problem faced by many owners of electric vehicles, is in the charging time of the battery. New Technology of Power Japan Plus promises to solve both of these questions, as well as improve the safety of such batteries.
According to CNET, the company Power Japan Plus introduced the so-called technology Ryden or Dual Carbon, which involves the use of carbon in the battery anode and cathode, which increases the speed of the existing charging lithium-ion batteries 20 times. Moreover, according to the manufacturer, during discharge the new battery does not heat up, which eliminates the need of additional cooling.
Factors of the cost of current lithium-ion batteries are the metals, cobalt, nickel and manganese, which are part of the cathode. Power Japan Plus decided to use in car batteries more accessible and less expensive material – carbon. The company has developed organic carbon Carbon Complex, which was derived from cotton.
Battery Ryden offers modern energy density lithium-ion batteries. Cruising cars here will not change, but it will greatly increase the speed of charging, which will reduce the parking time when refueling. For example, to fully charge an electric vehicle Nissan Leaf lasts four hours. Battery Ryden help reduce this time to 12 minutes.
Power Japan Plus also claims that it has developed the technology does not destroy the battery and shortens its life overall if fully depleted. Batteries used in electric cars today do not have this feature. To save the life of their batteries, automakers do not allow them to fully discharge.
Lack of temperature changes during the discharge can also improve the safety of using new batteries. To avoid thermal losses in the accumulator elements is used automakers cooling system. After all, as a result of damage to the battery overheating can cause a fire.
Batteries Power Japan Plus applies to sizes 18 650, which is most common in laptops. His company also uses in his Tesla Model S electric car .
Initially, the company Power Japan Plus will produce batteries Dual Carbon for medical devices and satellites. Later the technology itself plans to license it to other companies that adapt it to the needs of the automotive market.
