US Companies Develop Solid-state Batteries With Energy Density Of 432Wh / Kg

- Nov 27, 2019-

According to foreign media reports, TeraWattTechnology, a division of SFMotors, a US new energy company, announced the launch of a 4.5Ah solid-state battery design prototype, and the energy density of the battery reached a record 432Wh / kg (1122Wh / L).

At present, third parties, including Japan's Toyo System, are conducting verification tests on the battery prototype.

This 4.5Ah next-generation solid-state battery brand is called TERA3.0, which will be launched for some early users in 2021, and will be fully available in 2022. At the same time, TeraWattTechnology will continue to iterate the TERA3.0 design line and further develop other battery designs, including different battery modes, sizes and energy capacities.

TeraWattTechnology was established in 2017 as a division of SFMotors (SERES), headquartered in Santa Clara, California.

Dr. Tang Yifan, Chief Technology Officer of SERES, officially announced the 4.5Ah solid-state battery prototype at the FISITAPLUS2019 travel conference held in London, UK.

Ken Ogata, senior manager of battery technology at SERES, said that over the past 30 years, lithium-ion batteries have dominated consumer electronics and automobiles, and TERA 3.0 will surpass traditional lithium-ion battery solutions. With this solid-state battery, consumers can get longer-lasting, safer, and more reliable equipment.

In addition, for the large-scale production of TERA3.0 solid-state batteries using existing lithium-ion battery production equipment, the latter has been specially designed to make the solid-state batteries more efficient without putting a huge economic burden on manufacturers and consumers. Mass adoption.
