DESTEN launches ultra-fast charging LFP battery

DESTEN has introduced the Ultra-Fast Charging, 6C LFP (Lithium Iron Phosphate) cell. The latest pouch form-factor cell from DESTEN is capable of charging from 20% to 80% SOC in 6 minutes. Owing to its LFP-based chemistry, this cell features an impressive chemical and temperature stability profile, making for the safest battery technology available to date, alongside market-leading cost efficiency.

DESTEN’s LFP cell can reduce charging times for electric vehicles and enable grids to access short duration storage at a low cost/kWh with enhanced safety, as yet unavailable with NMC based compositions today.

DESTEN said that this Ultra-Fast Charging LFP innovation reflects its R&D capabilities, building upon established expertise in the development of Ultra-Fast Charging NMC cells, and the application of tailor-made material platforms, cell structuring techniques and proprietary cell production processes.

DESTEN is now working with its partners in North America, Europe and Asia to integrate these advancements in new EV and BESS platforms, with the first samples having already been made available to the OEM partners.

In 2017, DESTEN produced, tested and validated the first 10C charging battery technology, capable of charging to 80% SOC in 4 minutes and 40 seconds. DESTEN’s Ultra-Fast charging battery technology has been integrated into Energy Storage and Electric Vehicles which are in operation today. DESTEN has since developed a number of high performance Lithium-ion battery innovations comprising both high power NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) and high energy density LFP (Lithium Iron Phosphate) cell technologies to address the broad needs of the market. DESTEN has recently reached the double-digit MWh production capacity milestone.
