DESTEN a lithium-ion battery technology company, has introduced an Ultra-Fast Charging 6C Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) cell. This new cell is designed to charge from 20% to 80% within 6 minutes, aiming to reduce charging times for electric vehicles (EVs) and offer grids access to short-duration storage at a low cost per kilowatt-hour, with an emphasis on safety features.
The development of the Ultra-Fast Charging LFP technology involves the application of customized material platforms, advanced cell structuring techniques, and proprietary cell production processes. DESTEN is actively collaborating with partners in North America, Europe, and Asia to integrate these advancements into new EV platforms, with initial samples already provided to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) partners.
Bader Al-Rezaihan, CEO and Chairman of DESTEN Inc., expressed optimism about the potential impact of the technological advancement, stating, “Our latest technological breakthrough has the potential to enhance transportation and energy storage applications. By making ultra-fast charging cost-competitive via Iron-Phosphate material formats, DESTEN aims to address key adoption barriers for EV drivers and provide grids the power capacity to replace fast-ramping fossil fuel generation sources confidently.”
Thomas Gerhard Wilhelm Damitz, Chief Innovation Officer of DESTEN Inc., emphasized the growing role of LFP as a chemistry for mass-market applications, saying, “LFP is becoming a leading chemistry for mass-market applications. By developing a combination of fast charging, safety, longevity, and cost efficiency, we aim to contribute to the future sustainability of grids and transportation mediums.”
This technological development represents a noteworthy advancement in electric vehicle technology and grid storage solutions, with potential implications for a more efficient and sustainable future in transportation and energy sectors.
