SK Innovation Develops High-Speed Charging Batteries

SK Innovation is presenting its most current battery tech and research subjects at InterBattery 2020, hosted by South Korea’s Ministry of Trade, Market and Energy. The exhibition is held in COEX, Seoul, South Korea (October 21-23).

The company announced ambition to “Lead the Efforts for Battery Security, Charging Speed and Driving Variety” and noted the 3 most essential consider batteries:

To start with, the company has an exceptional performance history of safety with no history of an EV battery fire incident for ten years of providing batteries (starting in 2010). That’s a strong point, but on the other hand, we must bear in mind that so far SK Innovation was not producing batteries on a scale similar with Panasonic, LG Chem or CATL.

“With its first order from a worldwide customer in 2009, SK Development started supplying batteries in 2010. At this year’s exhibit, the company stresses any of its customers, consisting of providers of ESS or electrical lorries using SK batteries, have never experienced a battery fire incident, positioning itself as a provider that positions security as a top priority.”

High-speed charging

In terms of high-speed charging, SK Innovation is dealing with batteries that allow you to drive 500 miles (800 km) with two 10-minute charges along the method.

“… SK Innovation has actually been developing batteries that just need charging twice for 10 minutes each time to provide enough power for an EV to range from Seoul to Busan in a big salami (260 miles). The battery provider anticipates it can finish the development by as early as the end of this year or the first half of next year. Once such batteries with high usage are developed, they can play a significant role in the spread of EVs.”

If we assume that at first the battery was fully charged, and two charges, the length of each section would be approximately 170 miles (274 km). It would not be the most energy-dense cells then, however there are applications for those like taxis, buses for example.Long-range driving SK Innovation reports that already effectively tested EV

with 1,000 km(620 miles) of range, under the most optimum driving conditions, on a single charge. Those batteries are likewise assured to last 1,000 charging cycles.”SK Innovation likewise successfully carried out the industry’s very first test-driving that went on 1,000 km under the most optimal driving

conditions. The long-range driving is enabled and supported by the technology using high-density nickels as well as the company’s own innovation that does not cause battery efficiency issues even after more than a thousand times of charging and discharging.”NCM9 1/2 1/2 Following the NCM622 and NCM811 cathode chemistry, SK Development has actually likewise established the NCM9 1/2 1/2 type, in which cobalt stands for just up to around 5%of the cathode.”

SK Innovation developed NCM9 1/2 1/2 for the first time in the market following NCM622 and 811, which it likewise established and mass-produced for the very first time in the market. Based on its technological capacity shown by the advancement, the companied decided to concentrate its capability on long-life batteries that allow long-range driving.”It will be intriguing to see the specifications of the new NCM9 1/2 1/2 and which EVs to be geared up with the latest SK Innovation batteries.
