Other Lithium Battery Technologies

Lithium Air

  • Storage > Batteries > Lithium > -Air >
    Air battery to let electric cars outlast gas guzzlers - IBM claims to have solved a fundamental problem via their lithium-air cell technology that may lead to the creation of a battery with an 800-kilometre (500-mile) range - letting EVs potentially compete with most petrol engines for the first time. (NewScientist; January 6, 2012)
  • Storage > Batteries > Lithium > -Air >
    Lithium-air batteries offer three times the energy density - Lithium-air batteries have the potential of providing energy densities up to three times that of the conventional lithium-ion batteries found in just about every portable consumer electronics device and electric vehicles. Researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough that could help make the commercial development of lightweight rechargeable batteries a reality. (GizMag; Apr. 5, 2010)
  • IBM Invests in Lithium-Air Battery Research - IBM Research is beginning a project that it hopes will lead to the commercialization of batteries that store 10 times as much energy as today's within the next five years. The controversial technology uses energy-dense but highly flammable lithium metal to react with oxygen in the air, resulting in a lightweight, powerful, and rechargeable battery for the electrical grid and the electrification of transportation. (Technology Review; June 11, 2009)
  • Waterproof lithium-air batteries 10x more energy dense than Li-ion - A company based in Berkeley, CA, is developing lightweight, high-energy batteries that can use the surrounding air as a cathode. PolyPlus is partnering with a manufacturing firm to develop single-use lithium metal-air batteries for the government, and it expects these batteries to be on the market within a few years. (MIT Technology Review; June 26, 2009)

Lithium Polymer

  • CompactPower.com - LG CPI is producing a lithium-polymer battery with the following claims: Higher discharge power; Lowest cost; Environmentally benign; Improved low temperature performance; Improved dimensional stability; Improved calendar life.

Lithium Manganese Oxide

  • Electrovaya Launches Maya-300 - Electrovaya is launching the Maya-300 low-speed electric vehicle with a 120 mile range on a single charge. It is powered by Electrovaya’s lithiated manganese oxide battery that offers 40-60% higher energy density with comparable safety to its Phosphate-Series offerings, incorporating battery separator films from ExxonMobil. (Green Car Congress; Jan. 23, 2008)

Lithium Iron Phostphate

  • Kennedy Alternative Energy - Offers high discharge rate Lithium Iron Phosphate, LiFePO4 batteries for electric vehicles and other applications. Ideal due to their thermal stability these batteries also offer a high energy density, high discharge rate, extremely long life, inherent safety and a reasonable price.
  • LTC touts large new cells for autos - Lithium Technology Corporation introduced a new product line of lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) cells for hybrid and electric vehicles, providing 3,000 charging cycles, which would enable 150,000 miles to 80% capacity for a 60 mile all electric range. Its large format technology decreases weight while increasing performance and safety. (Inside Greentech; May 14, 2007)

Other Lithium Battery Technologies

  • LTC plug-in Prius Hybrid gets 125+ mpg - Lithium Technology Corporation unveiled a retrofitted Toyota Prius with plug-in capabilities allowing for 125+ miles per gallon fuel efficiency, powered by the Company’s lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) cells, the largest cells of their kind in the world. LTC’s large format technology allows for more reliable battery systems with a significantly lower number of cells. (Gizmag; May 25, 2007)
