At the Electric Vehicle Symposium this week in Anaheim CA, Valence Technology is introducing a new line of large-format lithium ion batteries designed for use in electric and hybrid vehicles. The phosphate-based lithium batteries are being branded Epoch. The batteries are equipped with an integrated management system to monitor the state of the battery. The batteries will be available in 12.8V and 19.2V modules for integration into packs up to 390 kWh. The batteries are also rated for at least 2,000 charge cycles. The Epoch batteries could be available beginning in 2008.
