With the proliferation of lithium-ion battery technology and an associated growth in dangerous battery related incidents, techniques for improving the safety of lithium-ion batteries have focused on the outside in. Although robust battery management systems, hardened shells, and fire retardant chemicals do improve safety, they do not eliminate lithium-ion batteries from being the source of fire or explosion. And importantly, these existing techniques often add significant weight and expense.
Amionx is focused on safety from the core of the battery outward and works even when other safety measure fail.
The video above is a side-by-side demonstration of a typical lithium-ion battery versus one equipped with Amionx SafeCore. Both batteries were charged to 12 volts (at a IC/3 Amp charge rate) until either the cell caught fire or failed safely.
