StoreDot, the pioneer of extreme fast charging (XFC) batteries for electric vehicles (EVs), has had its game-changing technology successfully validated by the leading independent battery lab Shmuel De-Leon Energy.
The internationally renowned experts in the field of energy storage and electric mobility subjected StoreDot’s production-ready XFC batteries to a series of in-depth tests.
This confirms the technology’s commercialisation viability and its superior fast charging and high-energy performance in comparison to any known XFC battery solutions for the EV sector.
The intensive independent test program was conducted at the Shmuel De-Leon Energy laboratories and covered energy density, charging rate, operating conditions and cycling.
The results corroborated the sector-leading 30Ah pouch cells with an energy density of 300Wh/kg and 1000 consecutive XFC cycles for StoreDot’s proprietary technology that utilises current deployed manufacturing equipment, which exceeded that of all other battery solutions tested.
This is an exciting time for StoreDot and the next generation of electric vehicles that will employ this battery technology. Hopefully, with such fast charging rates, it will massively help the transition to electric cars.
Doron Myersdorf, StoreDot CEO, said: “In recent months we have successfully concluded live public charging demonstrations of StoreDot’s XFC batteries. However, handing over our technology for independent assessment by leading battery labs of Shmuel De-Leon Energy was essential for us for independent validation of our extreme fast charging technologies.
“We are delighted to have passed yet another milestone on our strategic roadmap to deliver mass adoption of EVs with flying colours. It is particularly gratifying to have the commercialisation validity and superior performance of StoreDot’s XFC and high-energy technology verified by leading experts in the field.
“In addition, our technology continues to be trialled in the real world by our leading automotive partners. Each goal reached and each test successfully passed further validates our confidence in our ability to deliver 100in5 battery technology by 2024 and 100in3 by 2028.”
StoreDot’s battery technologies are poised to deliver a seismic shift for sustainable mobility. The aim is to deliver 100 miles of charge in five minutes by 2024, followed by 100 miles in three by 2028 and 100 in two within a decade.
Back in April, Volvo Cars Tech Fund announced it was investing in StoreDot. This new investment gives Volvo Carsthe opportunity to collaborate with StoreDot on exciting new battery technology, as it aims to become a pure electric car company by 2030.
