Lithium Technologies (LTC) and EnerSys have announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in which the two companies announce they're joining forces to distribute large lithium-ion batteries. EnerSys will become the distributor of battery packs using LTC's lithium ion cells for diverse applications, thus complementing EnerSys's current lineup of lead acid battery products (for instance, this Quebec plug-in hybrid test). Enersys will focus on military and defense applications as we
In mid-February, an electric bike built by ThunderStruck Motors and Lithium Technology Corporation raced a 1/8 mile course in 7.169 seconds, setting a new record of 93 mph in the 96 volt class. The previous record was 78 mph.
Last year, the Lithium Technology Corporation added their high-density lithium iron phosphate batteries to a Prius to display the batteries' power (supposedly, enough to get 125 mpge). in 2006, the company worked on a prototype Smart ForFour diesel-hybrid. Now, LTC has launched a new product line of those batteries for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. The batteries are the largest li-ion phosphate (LiFePO4) cells in the world and range in power from 8 Ah to 40 Ah.
