Toshiba has launched a new rechargeable EV battery

Toshiba has launched a new rechargeable lithium-ion battery cell that delivers high energy and high power at the same time. 

In an electric vehicle (EV) for example, a high-energy battery allows the vehicle to drive further on a single charge – but it lowers power input and output and extends charge times. 

Toshiba has drawn on its knowledge in current high-energy and high-power products to develop a new cell that combines the advantages of both.

According to the company, the cell is ideal for heavy-load applications where high power input and output are essential and for situations where battery cells must suppress heat and operate continuously, such as rapid charging of commercial vehicles. 

The cells are the same size as Toshiba’s existing 20Ah product, allowing current customers to easily uupgrade to the improved input and output power with the same module pack. The cell is available to order worldwide. 

In related news, researchers have developed a new electric vehicle (EV) battery made from sustainably sourced cellulose.
