Lithium Technology Corporation will launch a new product line of high energy density lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) cells, the largest cells of their kind in the world. This product line is aimed at answering the needs of the electrical vehicle (EV) and the plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) markets.

The company's new product line offers cells ranging from 8 Ah to 40 Ah, which joins the existing high power line, offering cells ranging from 6 Ah to 35 Ah. The company's complete portfolio of products includes various cell chemistries and large batteries.

"In recent years, LTC has been developing and offering battery technology that is unmatched by any other battery power solution on the market," says Klaus Brandt, chief executive officer of LTC. "Today, we are launching a product line that will complete our offering to the various markets we are targeting."

LTC, a global provider of large lithium-ion rechargeable power solutions, has focused solely on the development and production of large format lithium- ion batteries. LTC has been working closely with the German chemical company Sud-Chemie and its Canadian daughter company Phostech, the sole patent owners of the iron-phosphate technology, to further improve cell materials.

LTC's large format technology allows for the development of safer battery systems with a significantly lower number of cells. The weight of the battery is decreased while performance and safety monitoring capabilities are increased.

The battery management system (BMS) precisely monitors fewer cells, keeping them in balance for best performance and preventing damage to the battery due to over voltage, under voltage, over temperature and short circuit.

"We developed this product to power the new breed of EVs and for the fleet EV market that has been promoted recently all over the world," adds Brandt.
