HENDERSON, Nevada, June 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- K2 has engineered an improved power cell built on the company's proprietary K2|LiFePO4™ chemistry and proven safe technology. The cells in the Ultra line will offer increased energy density at a lower internal resistance and impedance, without compromising the safety or longevity. The first to be released from the K2 Ultra Line is the Next Generation Ultra Power Cell and is available in two form factors – the 18650UP, a 3.3 volt -1.35 amp hour cell, and the 26650UP, a 3.3 volt -2.85 amp hour cell. These cells offer both higher power and greater energy to meet the needs of users across a broad spectrum of devices and operations.
"We're constantly looking for ways to improve our products for consumers," said Joe Turner, K2 Energy Senior Development Manager. "We're pleased to introduce the Ultra line of products to provide our customers with an even safer, longer lasting product."
The innovations that led to the Ultra Line were researched and developed at K2 Energy's advanced battery labs, in Henderson Nevada. These improvements result in a more powerful, higher energy, safer, and more reliable product than conventional batteries. K2's cells, packs, and systems do not experience thermal runaway as compared to traditional lithium-ion batteries making them safer for consumers, especially while charging. K2's cells can also perform safely in extreme temperatures, ranging from -40 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius.
"The Next Generation Ultra Power Cell can be used in a wide variety of applications, including aeronautics, maritime, power tools and electric or mild hybrid vehicles," said Turner. "K2 engineered batteries and systems are perfect for large industrial projects, grid scale stabilization and distributed 'behind-the-meter' energy storage solutions. Our R&D team has spent a lot of time working to perfect this product and is confident that it will offer customers a better choice for their high power needs."
