BroadBit demonstrates the high safety of its Gen 1 cells
The following demonstration shows that our battery cells safely withstand even short circuit condition. This safety performance is particularly impressive considering that these are high-power battery cells, which deliver 80% of their nominal capacity even at 5C discharge rate (i.e. during 12 minute discharge from 100% to 0%). High-power battery cells have low internal resistance, and therefore a short-circuit condition generates a large amount of internal heating. A quantitative assessment of our battery’s safety performance will be undertaken and reported in the coming months.
BroadBit is a technology company developing revolutionary new batteries using novel sodium-based and lithium-based chemistries to power the future green economy. We have already made high performance lab samples and are now commercializing the technology for next generation electric vehicles, portable electronics, starters and grid energy storage. Our batteries enable Increased range/use time, Longer lifetime, Reduced cost, Improved environmental friendliness, Improved robustness, and Scalability to any production volume.
