Danville, Virgina (PRWEB) July 29, 2012
LiFeBATT, Inc. with world headquarters located in Danville, VA announced today the release of their new P20Ah cells to the market and welcomes all inquiries from OEM customers. These new cells are best in class with the combined features of long life, durability, high current discharge and safety.
The new P20 - prismatic LiFePO4 cell has a continuous discharge current of 240 amps and peak discharge of 500 amps. The cells feature screw post terminals which eliminate soldering and makes cell replacement simple compared to the design of other cells that use foil tabs for terminals requiring breaking solder connections and re-soldering to change out cells.
These prismatic cells are made with a lightweight aluminum “full metal jacket can” which is much stronger than a foil pouch and provides additional protection for the cell.
The LiFeBATT Modular Battery Packs are truly “field - serviceable”, whereas factory sealed systems are not. This is a critical difference if batteries are deployed in a third world country or a remote location where “hot swapping” Battery Packs would be extremely difficult if not impossible to do.
LiFeBATT has full certification of these cells by IEC and UL labs. We offer the highest safety value with the LiFePO4 cell chemistry in the Lithium – ion battery industry.
One of the first applications for these new cells will be employed in an armored vehicle being manufactured in Danville, VA by Hybrid Electric Vehicles of Danville.
The initial order for 200 Hybrid Electric vehicles will be going to Kuwait. In addition, LiFeBATT has orders for P20 battery packs scheduled for evaluation by the following OEM markets:
- Major automotive consulting group in the U.K.
- Luxury off - road camper trailer from Australia.
- Major battery supplier to the commercial aviation market
- Major auto maker in Europe.
- University programs in the U.S. and Europe.
- Many E-bikes and scooters
- Solar and wind storage system with extreme long lifecycles
