0-80% State of Charge in Less Than Six Minutes
Q&A to Follow
FREMONT, Calif., October 20, 2022 /Business Wire/ — Amprius Technologies, Inc. (“Amprius”) (NYSE: AMPX), a leader in ultra-high energy density lithium-ion batteries with its Silicon Nanowire Anode Platform, today announced that it will host a demonstration on Wednesday, October 26, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. EDT, of one of its battery’s extreme fast charge rate of 0-80% state of charge in less than six minutes.
Amprius has been in commercial production since 2018, and has continued to evolve its batteries in pursuit of game changing performance, offering batteries that provide superior performance compared to conventional graphite lithium-ion batteries.
During the virtual demonstration, Amprius’ Chief Technology Officer Dr. Ionel Stefan will explain the proprietary silicon nanowire anode technology and the unique battery characteristics that make it well positioned to address the electric mobility market.
Dr. Stefan will be testing Amprius’ Aviation High Power Fast Charge Cell (P/N CL0007 Silicon Nanowire Anode / LCO Cathode) that has the following specifications:
- 2.75Ah capacity
- 28 g weight
- 360 Wh/kg at C/5 discharge (Amprius provides range of batteries between 360 – 450Wh/kg)
- 890 Wh/L at C/5 discharge (Amprius provides range of batteries between 890-1,400WH/L)
- Greater than 100 cycles to 80% of initial capacity at 100% DoD
- Max continuous discharge current 12.5A (5C)
This technological advancement validates Amprius’ performance against the U.S. Advanced Battery Consortium 2025 goal of 0-80% in sub-15 minutes and has been verified by third-party independent testing.
Amprius’ Chief Executive Officer Dr. Kang Sun and Chief Operating Officer Jon Bornstein will join Dr. Stefan for a question-and-answer session following the extreme fast charge demonstration.
