Innovation knows no boundaries, especially when we talk about electric mobility. Innolith, a Swiss company, is taking battery technology to a whole new level. Presenting I-State, a battery that not only promises to reduce costs and recharging, but also to push the autonomy of electric vehicles beyond the incredible threshold of 1.000 km. A quantum leap that could rewrite the rules of the game in the electric vehicle sector.
The magic behind I-State lies in its chemical composition. Unlike traditional batteries, this innovative cell uses a non-flammable liquid electrolyte that allows it to reach surprisingly high voltages, up to 5 volts. To put things in perspective, most traditional batteries stop at 4,2 V. This voltage jump not only increases autonomy, but could also reduce the time, as well as the number of recharges.
With a graphite anode and a cathode with the classic NMC 811 composition, the I-State battery boasts a volumetric density of 825 Wh/l. But it's not just the density that impresses: the ability to function correctly in a temperature range from -40 degrees to +60 degrees is also noteworthy. A versatility that makes it ideal for a wide range of applications, from electric cars to portable devices.
Not just fewer refills: a vision for the future
Konstantin Solodovnikov, CEO of Innolith, highlighted the importance of overcoming the limitations of car's battery performance conventional lithium ion batteries. With 40 years of service behind them, these batteries have certainly played their role, but it's time to look forward.
The I-State battery will not remain just a prototype. Innolith has announced that it will be produced in collaboration with car manufacturers and industry companies. While waiting for further details from the company, we know that negotiations are underway to start licensed production. This could translate into an annual production of 100 MWh of new I-State batteries. And with five companies already interested and a letter of intent signed with a major car manufacturer, the future for Innolith and its revolutionary battery seems to have already lit up.
