Best charging behavior for LFP batteries

I have been writing about the importance of LFP (LiFePO4) batteries for a while now, but I haven’t written about the best charging behavior for this battery chemistry yet. It’s time to write a...

CATL gets approval for battery cell production in Germany

By the end of 2022, CATL will finally start producing battery cells in Europe (Germany). Machinery is already being installed.   Contemporary Amperex Technology Thuringia GmbH (CATT) is CATL’s first battery plant outside China...

SVOLT batteries for electric cars

SVOLT reached 200 Wh/kg with LFP battery cells

Finally, SVOLT confirmed that it has reached this milestone and their battery cells are available for automakers to order.   Until sodium-ion batteries (NIBs) for electric vehicles become mass-produced in large scale, LFP (LiFePO4)...

CATL announced its third-generation CTP battery technology

The world’s biggest battery maker, CATL, announced that its third-generation CTP (cell-to-pack) battery technology is ready for mass production and the official launch is expected in April.   Through continuous technological iteration, CATL has...

SK On is considering developing LFP batteries

SK Innovationโ€™s battery unit, SK On, is now finally considering developing LFP (LiFePO4) batteries for electric vehicles. This decision comes shortly after its domestic competitor, LG Energy Solution announced that’s already developing EV batteries...

Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)

Lithium metal battery improved with new electrolyte

Lithium metal is one of the best candidates to replace graphite as an anode material thanks to its high theoretical capacity. The problem is that batteries using lithium metal anodes currently have poor cycle...

This is why BYD Blade battery is ahead of competition

Currently the LFP (LiFePO4) cobalt-free chemistry allows to build EV batteries that are extremely safe, durable, simple, affordable and with good performance. Since – unlike NCM or NCA – LFP battery cells are extremely...
