StoreDot's fast charging (XFC) battery technology is reaching close to production, the Israeli technology company has reported.
Internationally renowned experts in the field of energy storage and electric mobility subjected StoreDot’s production-ready XFC batteries to a series of in-depth tests, confirming the technology’s commercialization viability.
The intensive independent test program was conducted at the Shmuel De-Leon Energy laboratories and covered energy density, charging rate, operating conditions and cycling.
The results corroborated an energy density of 300 Wh/kg and 1,000 consecutive XFC cycles for StoreDot’s proprietary technology that utilizes current deployed manufacturing equipment, the company said.
Doron Myersdorf, CEO, StoreDot, said: “In recent months we have successfully concluded live public charging demonstrations of StoreDot’s XFC batteries. However, handing over our technology for independent assessment by leading battery labs of Shmuel De-Leon Energy was essential for us for independent validation of our extreme fast charging technologies.
“We are delighted to have passed yet another milestone on our strategic roadmap to deliver mass adoption of EVs with flying colours. It is particularly gratifying to have the commercialization validity and superior performance of StoreDot’s XFC and high energy technology verified by leading experts in the field.”
The CEO further said that the company’s technology continues to be trialled in the real-world by its automotive partners.
“Each goal reached and each test successfully passed further validates our confidence in our ability to deliver 100in5 battery technology by 2024 and 100in3 by 2028,” Myersdorf said.
