Israeli battery manufacturer StoreDot has confirmed that after 1,000 extreme fast-charging cycles, its XFC battery cell avoided degradation, proving its 100in5 technology.
StoreDot’s 100in5 tech aims to provide 100 miles, or 160 kilometers, of range for EVs in just five minutes with its cell. In development for several years, StoreDot’s most recent findings not only prove the company’s path toward extreme fast-charging rates but also the cell’s longevity, which is as important.
In full cycle charge tests that emulated real-world use, the XFC was applied from 10 percent to 80 percent in just 10 minutes, and the final 0 to 10 percent and 80 to 100 percent were performed with slower charging.
Results of the test proved that, even after 1,000 consecutive fast-charging cycles, there was no degradation.
“This remarkable accomplishment underscores our commitment to developing cutting-edge technology that is not only extremely fast but also highly durable,” Dr. Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot, said. “The tests safely delivered the charging speed that consumers demand with the best range, whilst preserving the longevity of the vehicle’s battery cells — a crucial combination in reducing users’ anxiety for achieving widespread adoption of EVs.”
StoreDot is already working with global automotive and EV manufacturers like Daimler, Ola Electric, Polestar, VinFast, and Volvo Cars, which have worked with the company regarding strategy and have invested in the company.
Fifteen leading automotive brands have also helped with comprehensive testing and have reported “strong feedback for the evaluation and integration of A-Samples testing phase of its XFC EV battery cells,” StoreDot said.
The company’s test is a major milestone in StoreDot’s commitment to delivering extreme fast charging battery cells while also preserving the lifespan of the battery to ensure longevity in vehicles.
“The landmark also further enhances its path to EV OEM commercialization and advances its mission to be the category leader in faster, safer and worry-free EV charging,” the company said.
