PHEVs? Lux still prefers e-bikes and microhybrid markets

By / April 19, 2011

E-bikes are growing in popularity in China’s urban areas, and many other countries. Credit: Vmenkov, Wikipedia. In contrast to DOE’s continuing efforts to accelerate the use of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, Lux Research still predicts that small-battery applications will power innovation, at least globally, in regard to electricity-enabled vehicles. We noted last year that Lux…

U.K.’s Nexeon announces record Li-ion performance

By / December 17, 2010

Nexeon, a U.K.-based silicon anode producer, claims to have developed the world’s highest energy-capacity Li-ion batteries proportional to size, based on its silicon technology. According to a company press release, the cells hold a capacity of 3.2A. This exceeds that of commercially-available Li-ion batteries, which usually  range between 2.5Ah and 3.1Ah. Nexeon produced the advanced…
