New EV battery recharges in 3 minutes
    2018-05-24  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A BATTERY for electric vehicles, which can recharge  from 10 percent to around 90 percent in only three minutes, made its debut at the 13th China International Battery Fair (CIBF) in Shenzhen on Tuesday, the Shenzhen Economic Daily reported.


The CIBF has attracted more than 1,250 exhibitors from nearly 20 countries, and it was estimated that over 100,000 visitors would participate in the three-day fair.


Some of the most cutting-edge technologies in the battery and new energy industries are the highlights of the fair.


The battery that can recharge an EV in just a few minutes was developed and manufactured by a Chinese new-energy battery company, Melsen. The company also debuted a new electric automobile that has been paired with the battery for a test-driving campaign.


A staffer from Melsen explained that the battery they had developed most recently can take 15 times more electric current, allowing it to recharge an EV in only three minutes. The energy density of the battery is around 150wh/kg and it can be used over 100,000 times.


Life span and recharging time have been limiting factors for the electric automobile industry, according to the staffer, but with the new battery technology, the industry is going to thrive, the report said.


The CIBF has attracted exhibitors from China, Japan, South Korea, the United States, Germany, France, Italy and other countries. The German exhibition area is close to 500 square meters.


Liu Yanlong, secretary general of China Industrial Association of Power Sources (CIAPS), said that this year’s fair is the largest ever with an exhibition area of around 110,000 square meters, 30 percent more than in 2016.


According to Liu, the growth of the fair can be attributed to the rapid development of China’s new-energy vehicle industry and the subsequent higher demand for batteries.


In 2016, China had 500,000 EVs on the roads, and the number of EVs sold increased to nearly 800,000 last year. The revenue from lithium batteries in 2017 reached  158.9 billion yuan (US$24.93 billion).


China has been the world’s largest market for batteries in the past three years with a global share of more than 50 percent.   (Zhang Qian)
