American Public Transportation Association (APTA) EXPO 2017, Atlanta, October 9, 2017 – XALT Energy, a leading U.S. manufacturer of lithium-ion cells and battery systems, announced today the second-generation (Gen II) battery cell to its portfolio of lithium-ion cells. The 65Ah ultra-high energy (UHE) cell uses Gen II technology, delivers 223 watt-hours per kilogram (Wh/kg) of high-energy, maintains a high cycle life and delivers 47 percent more energy density compared to the first-generation (Gen I) technology.
The 65Ah UHE cell has a strong cycle and calendar life when compared to similar cells on the market while maintaining reliability, consistent high-quality and robust technology that are hallmarks of XALT Energy’s solutions. It is ideal for high-energy density applications where space and weight are limiting factors, such as in hybrid and fully electric vehicles, grid storage, and electric marine vessels and locomotives.
“Our Gen II cell delivers a significantly higher energy density cell at a reduced cost without sacrificing battery cycle life. Based on market demands, our team has worked intensively on this technology to bring it to market in less than 18 months,” said Lisa Stevenson, director of cell development for XALT Energy.
“The 65Ah UHE cell will also be used in XALT Energy’s new XPAND XMOD module,” said Richard Cundiff, CEO of XALT Energy. “XALT Energy is the battery developer of choice for global OEMs. With the release of our Gen II cells and XPAND XMOD114E technology this week at APTA, we are showing our public transportation customers that we deliver industry leading solutions to power commercial transportation vehicles.”
