Research Institution
High power rechargeable lithium batteries are desired for a wide variety of military products. Increasingly powerful and sophisticated military and civilian equipment require higher power batteries to function reliably under various conditions. Rechargeable lithium battery cells currently available have about 4.7kW/kg specific power for continuous discharge. By improving existing materials, electrode and cell designs in lithium-ion, the battery power density and specific power can be vastly improved. This work will also achieve no voltage delay, even after long storage periods, operability in a wide range of temperatures, long storage life, and safety.
