The dual carbon hybrid battery, depth

PRIUS_PLUG-IN_HYBRID_014_DET-1In the field of electric batteries for hybrid cars no break in the R & D The original objectives are still valid, namely, to improve their ability to get reasonable autonomy, autonomy rivaling combustion engines; achieve much smaller load times ; make batteries last many more cycles of complete charge and discharge.

To achieve these objectives it is necessary to experience the most picturesque test solutions, but in this case one of the characteristics of the dual carbon battery is just that, the presence of carbon in both the anode and the cathode. In fact the “dual carbon”, as they say in English, comes precisely from the two electrodes made of carbon, which is key to achieve high energy density, economics of production, intrinsic safety and reliability, by Not to mention the environmental benefits.

Recharge 20 times faster, and also lasts longer. Is it true?

On paper the characteristics of this new type of “dual” carbon battery are unbeatable. They would bite the dust “classical” Li-ion batteries, but since most manufacturers hybrid cars have opted for the lithium ion long term, much remains to be done in the commercial field to be gaining share market. And before selling the bear’s skin, you have to hunt.

In the version of the laboratory tests that make brands flagged when selling the product got load times and 20 times lower 300 miles of electric range (approximately 482 km, which can already be considered as a average distance). If it is also a device that has greater durability over time, is clearly a breakthrough to achieve takeoff of hybrid cars, and of course plug-in hybrids with higher capacities, or fully electric.

Durability is another great strength, for triples (always talking approximately) the life of the lithium-ion battery, allowing about 3,000 cycles of complete charge and discharge to the nearly 1,000 that can last a “traditional” battery .

It seems the perfect battery and can certainly be a major spurt in the implementation of electric mobility, either in the form of hybrids with greater autonomy in EV (or plug) mode, or 100% electric vehicles.

The market for electric batteries evolves booming

The future is electric going largely by the hybrid vehicle. The logic seems to make us understand that, gradually, the part will be 100% electric gaining prominence as higher capacities are achieved, and therefore greater autonomy, less load times and more security-stability-reliability.

For this reason, the market for electric batteries is constantly booming, and there is increasing demand. In fact, Toyota demand 28% of the global production of batteries of this type , and the thing should not only increase in the coming years. Only in the last 36 months production, something from increased market share of hybrid cars and the increased presence of the electrical components as in the case of the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid tripled.

Give market entry to the carbon-based batteries would amount to further reduce the entry barrier to hybrid or electric market for many undecided buyers, so that’s why we are confident that these will be the batteries of the future. Or, at least, the batteries of the future will have much in common with these dual carbon batteries.
