Prieto Battery, a 3D lithium-ion battery technology company, announced the results of its third-party certification for Energy Assurance LLC. Testers tested a set of Prieto fully assembled batteries with a patented 3D positive electrode in accordance with UL and IEC lithium ion chemistry standards. As a result, all Prieto batteries achieved a 100% success rate and achieved zero test failure.
According to foreign media reports, 3D lithium-ion battery technology company Prieto Battery announced the results of its third-party certification for Energy Assurance LLC. Testers tested a set of Prieto fully assembled batteries with a patented 3D positive electrode in accordance with UL and IEC lithium ion chemistry standards. As a result, all Prieto batteries achieved a 100% success rate and achieved zero test failure.
The Prieto battery system is designed around a porous copper structure (foamed copper), conformally coated with an ultra-thin polymer electrolyte, and then surrounded by a positive electrode matrix. The resulting three-dimensional lithium-ion battery with interpenetrating electrodes has a very short Li + diffusion distance and a much higher power density than the current two-dimensional structure. Copper telluride (Cu2Sb) electrodeposited on copper foam provides stability to the positive electrode and exhibits a large capacity during a series of cycles. This foam cell can be customized to optimize for power density or energy density.
Prieto is committed to producing safer lithium ionic compounds to meet market demand. Currently, the company has two products under development to provide a solution to eliminate fire hazards to replace current lithium-ion compounds. The first is a newly tested 3D positive electrode that is assembled into a full battery using a conventional liquid electrolyte; the second 3D solid state battery uses a Prieto proprietary solid polymer electrolyte.
Based on recent test results, Prieto will launch the next round of financing to mass produce 3D cathodes and accelerate the commercial prototyping of 3D solid state batteries. The company's mission is to promote the commercialization of patented 3D lithium-ion battery technology, which uses custom-made, non-toxic materials to provide conversion performance at a competitive cost.
In addition, Prieto has applied for a unique patent for electroplating manufacturing processes. The process uses non-toxic materials to produce batteries that are competitively priced. Prieto's lab and headquarters are located in Fort Collins, Colorado.
