A U.S. company says its made battery breakthrough for longer life driving.

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology company Enevate Corp has great raps on its  HD-Energy® Technology saying it features charging in five minutes equalling 390 km, or up to 80 km with a 60-second charge.

The company says the fast and very short charging times are better than any other Li-ion technology available, while meeting automotive requirements for energy density, range, and cost.

Enevate licenses its silicon-dominant HD-Energy® Technology to battery and EV automotive manufacturers and suppliers worldwide.

This new extreme fast charge technology breaks down the barriers to electric vehicle adoption.

EVs have been challenged primarily due to their limited range and drivers’ “range anxiety,” long charge times, and high cost. Conventional graphite cells also suffer significant degradation with extreme fast charging.

Now, Enevate’s groundbreaking silicon Li-ion battery technology in EV cells (NCM-based) can be charged in 5 minutes at up to a tested 10C charging rate to 75% capacity with uncompromised range and energy densities of over 750 Wh/L, .

The benefits of Enevate’s silicon-dominant HD-Energy Technology enable next-generation features that take EVs to the next level, said Founder an Chief Technology Officer Dr. Benjamin Park.

“Extreme fast charges for very short and convenient charging times, higher energy density leading to longer driving ranges, and cold temperature operation with inherent safety advantages make this technology ideal for electric vehicles,” Dr Park said.

“Enevate’s HD-Energy battery technology can safely charge and discharge down to -40°C and capture more energy during regenerative braking, extending their range in cold climates.

“A key safety benefit is that Enevate’s HD-Energy Technology is inherently resistant to lithium-plating during fast charge and also during charging in low temperatures, which is a major challenge for conventional graphite Li-ion cells.”
