NINGBO, China and CARLSBAD, Calif., July 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Veken Technology and Amionx have entered into a manufacturer agreement that enables Veken Technology to produce batteries that include SafeCore™ by Amionx.
As part of the agreement, Amionx has begun the technology transfer process of a SafeCore design for batteries typically used in consumer electronics devices like cell phones, tablets, notebooks and wearables. Once complete, Veken will be able to make and apply SafeCore in its factories and may provide batteries using the technology to licensees of Amionx.
"We are pleased to enter into this agreement for SafeCore with Amionx," said Dongwen Yang CEO of Veken Technology. "The battery industry has worked tirelessly to ensure lithium-ion batteries are as safe as possible. One of our key corporate goals is to provide the safe, reliable, stable, and high-performance lithium battery products as well as the best service for our customers. Adding this additional layer of protection SafeCore provides, further demonstrates this commitment."
"We are delighted to include Veken Technology as the third manufacturer who will now be able to produce batteries that include SafeCore," said Jenna King CEO of Amionx. "We have made tremendous progress in prototyping and validating SafeCore in multiple battery chemistries and applications such as consumer electronics, electric vehicles, and power tools, among others. We look forward to completing this initial technology transfer process for consumer electronics and will then collaborate on designs for other applications. We have the vision that SafeCore will eventually be in every lithium-ion battery sold globally. This agreement brings us one step closer to realizing this goal."
SafeCore addresses the major events associate with thermal runaway in lithium-ion batteries which are overcharge and internal short as well as certain high temperature situations. The benefits of SafeCore are:
- Virtually no increase to the bill of materials for lithium-ion batteries
- No incremental capital cost
- Longer lifetime of battery
- Longer shelf life of battery
- Allows for design of smaller and lighter battery systems
- Applicable to other chemistries such as nano-silicon and lithium metal as well as solid state
