“This is a watershed moment for Sion Power’s push toward next-generation electrified vehicles,” says Mr. Tracy Kelley, CEO of Sion Power
Although we have seen many high-energy battery companies in the news, few of them claim to produce cells in high-capacity commercial sizes.
The Licerion cells completed 1000 cycles, which means the Stratobus could stay aloft continuously for more than two years. The high energy density of the Licerion cells can provide all the energy needed without compromising payload capacity.
Through optimization of its protected lithium anode (PLA) and advanced electrolyte formulations, Sion Power performed tests on 1.8 Ah cells, which resulted in 800 full depth of discharge cycles to 70% capacity. Sion Power projects Licerion EV will have 420 Wh/kg and 700 Wh/L when scaled to commercial design. Charge times of 15 minutes to 100% state of charge were repeatedly demonstrated with 99.7% efficiency.
Sion Power, the technology leader in high-energy, lithium metal rechargeable batteries, announces the groundbreaking of a new battery test facility at its Tucson, Arizona facility. The new facility will encompass over 5,300 square feet and will include more than 3,000 cell test channels, abuse room with safety test equipment, and an altitude chamber. Sion Power’s…
