Cell Sample Maturity

A B C D Sample development

Cell Sample Maturity is normally defined by the A, B, C, D sample definitions. These stages of the cell design, production line development and material supply are key to the relationship between the cell manufacturer and cell customer. The customer needs to have confidence in the cell design, robustness and quality and this is only … Read more

Smart Battery Development

smart battery design

Prof James Marco WMG Energy Group Significant advances have been made in recent years in our understanding of the electrochemical performance of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), their degradation, safety, manufacturability and recyclability – in part, through innovations in experimental methods and mathematical modelling. WMG is at the heart of this research through our involvement in projects … Read more

Tesla 4680 Cell

Tesla 4680

The Tesla 4680 cell has intrigued ever since it was announced. A cylindrical cell that is 46mm in diameter and 80mm high. Estimated Specifications: The assumption is that Panasonic / Tesla have initially used the same fundamental chemistry in this cell as the 21700 or even stepped back to the previous one. This would be … Read more

Benchmarking Battery Packs

benchmarking battery packs

When benchmarking battery packs the intention is to create a standard list of data and then a list of references. This form will post will form the standard list that we will use going forward and hence we need to get this 90% complete before we start. The first thing to look at when benchmarking … Read more

Sodium Ion Cell

sodium ion

The sodium ion cell offers a sustainable energy storage alternative to lithium ion cells. With sodium based layered metal oxide cathode and a hard carbon anode. Sodium cells are still in the development stage with some small scale productions. The main benefits of the Sodium Ion cell are: Environmental abundance of Sodium Safety Low cost … Read more
