Aero-service EV4, 4-wheel electric bike from Poland

Posted by Charbax – June 8, 2016

EV4 is designed by Aero-service in Poland, using low weight components highly durable aeronautical aluminum alloy, constructed like an airplane. The main frame of the vehicle is riveted just like in the case of airplanes to make it more durable and lightweight. The independent suspension uses an adaptive suspension system to adjust to the shape of the terrain at any given moment. Regardless of the surface type, terrain, angle of inclination of roads and travel, the EV4’s wheels uniformly and evenly touch the ground. Thanks to the electric drive as well as gear belts the noise emission is close to zero, which has a positive effect on the driving comfort. The vehicle’s low weight and the use of modern and efficient lithium ion batteries achieve a 100km driving range. Shocks are absorbed by two bicycle shock absorbers with adjustable hardness and damping. Hydraulic disc brakes on 4 wheels allow for very short braking distances, making the EV4 very safe. The EV4’s four wheels result in stability superior to that of single-track vehicles.

IDTechEx Interview: BroadBit metallic sodium batteries

Posted by Charbax – May 30, 2016

Dr. Peter Harrop, chairman of IDTechEx interviews David Brown, CEO of BroadBit at the IDTechEx Show! in Berlin. David talks about BroadBit’s metallic sodium batteries, which provide nearly 2x the Wh/kg of lithium-ion batteries with the same volume density. BroadBit is developing revolutionary new batteries using novel sodium-based chemistries to power the future green economy. Filmed in 4K using the Sony AX53

BroadBit metallic sodium batteries, 10x more power than Lithium-Ion, 5-minute full charge

Posted by Charbax – May 30, 2016

BroadBit has invented and is commercializing a new type of metallic sodium battery in two families: Hi-Energy batteries with twice the energy per weight and Hi-Power batteries with ten times the power as todays lithium-ion batteries. BroadBits Hi-Power batteries can be fully charged in as little as 5 minutes. BroadBits batteries are made with abundant and cheap raw materials (e.g. table salt) and its manufacturing process is simpler than Li-ion. With these advantages, BroadBit expects its cost per kWh to be a third that of Li-ion when in mass production. Moreover, initial tests of the technology show no detectable degradation in battery performance over 600 cycles. This is because, unlike Li-ion, there are no side reactions, dendrite formation or mechanical stress due to ion intercalation.

These innovations, if BroadBit can turn them into mass production and meet their promises, could make mobile devices lighter, faster charging and longer lasting and will finally enable low-cost, high range and convenient electric vehicles including cars, buses, bikes and even electric air planes and bring about the long awaited post combustion era of transportation. BroadBit is now scaling production of its proprietary electrolytes, anodes and cathodes and is looking for partners worldwide to assemble batteries from its components.
