K2 Energy Solutions Inc. Leads the Launch of Revolutionary HT Technology that Extends Battery Life

Jul 10, 2012, 08:00 ET from K2 Energy Solutions Inc.

HENDERSON, Nev., July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- K2 Energy Solutions Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of proprietary, lithium iron phosphate based energy and power batteries and battery systems, commercially launched its Revolutionary HT Technology in its energy optimized cells in the first quarter of 2012. This revolutionary technology significantly extends the effective operating temperature range of its batteries, consequently extending the overall life of the batteries utilizing it. The company expects to fully implement the technology in its power optimized cells by the third quarter of 2012. 

HT technology solves one of the primary challenges in the commercialization of rechargeable lithium ion batteries, the rapid degradation of battery capacity at elevated temperatures.  The operating life of a battery, with HT technology, improves by as much as six times when compared to conventional lithium ion technology measured at 60 degrees C (140 degrees F).  High temperature performance has limited the use of lithium ion batteries in some transportation, energy storage and military applications where battery systems must frequently operate in extreme environments. K2 Energy Solutions Inc. believes that its HT technology will greatly accelerate the commercialization of its battery systems.

Dr. James D. Hodge, K2 Energy Solutions Inc.'s Chief Technology Officer says, "The introduction of our new HT products is a major step forward in lithium-ion battery technology." He goes on, "The development of this technology is part of our company's process of continual improvement of our batteries and systems to meet the rapidly evolving needs of our customers. As the first company to launch this HT technology, the introduction of it contributes to K2 Energy Solution Inc.'s position as an industry leader in providing robust, cost-effective lithium iron phosphate energy storage solutions."
