Developement of a lithium-ion battery that can function as an ultra fast charger to recharge L17 land warior battery
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
The need for a safe, portable battery that can be used as a charger to recharge small lithium-ion batteries such as L17 land warrior battery is recognized. The proposed project addresses to investigate the feasibility of defining the design and dimension of such charger battery
A novel electrochemical couple is proposed for the development of a safe high specific energy lithium-ion battery system, which provides enhanced safety and can function as a charger. The proposed anode material, which delivers 50% higher practical capacity than the state-of-the-art carbon anode materials, will be used to address the safety issues. A single cell of the proposed charger battery will be developed and evaluated the performance demonstrate the proof-of-concept.
