The Startup XNRGI wants to have found a way, such as lithium-ion battery safer and much more competitive. Electric cars could be over 1,100 kilometers. So far, promises of large ranges for electric cars of the future. Currently, E-cars with one battery charge on average a little more than 400 kilometers. The Tesla vehicles are fitted with up to 600 kilometers range here is the exception rather than the rule.
Now she wants in Portland, in the U.S. state of Oregon-based startup XNRGI have found a way to more than double the range of traditional E-cars. This is not a new miracle battery, but to optimize the design of lithium-ion batteries, such as digital trends reported.
Power chip battery technology can solve current Li-ion problems
Therefore, the so-called power chip XNRGI on battery technology, for which the startup has a whole series of patents. In addition, XNRGI to a request from the US Department of Energy. According to full-bodied explains company boss Chris D’Couto, he believed that all current problems of lithium-ion batteries at the same time XNRGI.
The revolve mainly around the security – Keyword: Fire Hazard – and apparently highly expandable energy density. To this end, the XNRGI on wafers in the semiconductor industry known. Newly invented or developed so that nothing but a functioning technology from the chip shop on the battery manufacture is transferred, so D’Couto. Because XNRGI on an older generation of wafer burrows, the offer, and the prices are also no problem. In the twelve-inch wafer, according to XNRGI, up to 160 million microscopic holes drilled.
One side is provided with a conductive, the other with a non-conductive coating. The Technology Welcome XNRGI finally at the anode of the battery, where the electrons collect on a fully charged battery. So far, there is often graphite is used. The HOLEY, three-dimensional surface of the anode of XNRGI, according to the startup ten times the higher energy density. In addition, the life of the three- to five-fold increase. And safer than the current, the new batteries yet.
D’Couto promises that one after the XNRGI-idea-made electric car battery within 15 minutes to up to 80 percent can be loaded. In addition, the range can be increased by 280 percent, so almost tripled. This means that electric cars with currently around 400 kilometers reach this on more than 1,100 kilometers. In E-Scooters, drones or robots, the new batteries already in 2020. In electric cars could take until 2024 until the batteries are installed in large numbers.
