It Only Takes Six Minutes For Toshiba To Release A New Super-charged Ion Battery

- Oct 25, 2017-

China energy storage net news: according to foreign media reports, Toshiba release of a new generation of super charged ion battery (SCiB), the lithium ion battery charging speed, the anode material used titanium niobium oxide, Toshiba said its batteries energy storage capacity is twice the current conventional lithium ion battery.

The core has a capacity of 50 amperes (amp - hour), which can be charged for only six minutes.

In Japan, Toshiba said JC08 test cycle, charging in six minutes, compared with the conventional lithium-ion batteries, which provide the 32 - kWh electric vehicle battery of electric vehicle mileage triple,

However, charging time is only a factor in the performance evaluation of the battery.

To that end, Toshiba also claims that its SCiB battery prototype has a battery life of up to 90 percent after being charged and discharging 5,000 times, which means it can be used for nearly 14 years if it is recharged every day.

Even at a low temperature of 14 degrees Fahrenheit, the charging time is extended to 10 minutes at most.

Toshiba said it plans to commercialize the battery in fy2019, but there are still a number of issues to be resolved.

Toshiba has not disclosed the cost per kWh of SCiB, but that factor may be a limiting factor for carmakers to promote new technologies.

After all, if an electric car costs $75,000 and only takes six minutes to recharge, the public is happy to accept it and buy it.

If Toshiba can gradually reduce the production cost of the battery and pass a preliminary test, buyers who are watching may consider buying an electric car.
