Additive manufacturing specialist Sakuu has developed a lithium steel battery that achieved an power density of 800 Wh/l in current testing. The corporate says its battery achieves an power density of 500-700 Wh/l, or better. It demonstrates an power retention price of 97% after 200 cycles, and Sakuu expects it to achieve an 80% retention price after 800 cycles.
The battery is the first-generation solid-state battery (SSB) in a product line deliberate by the corporate. Subsequent up for Sakuu is a 3D-printed SSB with power density greater than 1,200 Wh/l. The corporate expects to start delivering pattern cells of the second era in early 2023.
“The arrival of a secure, sustainable, and high-performance SSB, manufactured with a very novel 3D printing methodology, can clear up essential provide chain and issues of safety whereas shifting past limitations of at the moment’s lithium-ion batteries,” mentioned founder and CEO of Sakuu Robert Bagheri.
