The electric car, the eternal expectation

Since our start in the battery world, VT has closely followed the evolution of the electric car in the automotive market. In 2012, we learned about "Better Place", the project of a venture capital fund to manage electric car batteries under a "battery sharing" model. At the time, the idea seemed to be the perfect solution to the battery charging problem. The model was that Better Place subscribers could enjoy (as users/subscribers and not as owners) charged batteries at any time, as long as they went to a battery replacement station. Of course these batteries would be charged with renewable energy, which made the project even more attractive and "subsidizable" if possible. But of course...

The hard life of a Traction Battery. Batteries are commercially classified according to their application: Starting Batteries. To start explosion enginesStationary Batteries. To power static equipment: emergency lighting, alarms, UPS, telecommunications, etc. Traction batteries. To supply energy to an electric motor that normally moves with the vehicle. If we could make an analysis of the daily life of each of these batteries, we could easily conclude that traction batteries are undoubtedly the ones that "have the worst life". Let me explain: Starter batteries: They are sprint runners. High intensity peaks are demanded during short periods of time. Once the engine starts, the alternator starts to charge them. Their normal state in the 90% of their life is from rest to...

Advantages and disadvantages of Lithium Lead Acid Batteries (ION/LiPo/LiFEPO4/NMC)

In the common technologies used in automotive and electrical energy storage, conventional lead acid batteries and lithium batteries in their different forms are widely used. All batteries are composed of an anode, a cathode, the electrolyte (used to communicate the anode with the cathode and generate electricity), and a separator in the case of lithium batteries, to prevent an internal short-circuit caused by the power, which could compromise the battery and the connected system. Operation in Lead Acid batteries on the left, and in lithium (ION) on the right.* Lead Acid Within lead acid, there is a distinction that does not exist in lithium, the separation between automotive starting batteries, which support peaks of...
