35 percent longer cycle life, 15 times longer storage life: Optimised to 60 degrees Celsius, the EAS HiT-Cell saves volume, weight and energy consumption of future batteries. "We improve the thermal stability of our cells so that we can dispense with complex cooling systems in the battery pack," says EAS-Batteries Managing Director Michael Deutmeyer. The optimised cell delivers the accustomed performance and safety of our standard cell formats at temperatures from -30 to 60 degrees Celsius. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research is funding cell development as part of the project "Battery 2020 - Battery materials for future electromobile and stationary applications". With the current status report of 21 October, the development project enters its final phase. The EAS HiT-Cell will be used in battery systems of the maritime industry as well as in space and aerospace applications.
