Posted September 09, 2018 06:16:00 The Altec batteries that have been touted as the world’s fastest are fast becoming the stuff of legend.
With an estimated lifetime of 12 hours, a typical lithium ion battery can power a car for up to two hours.
Altec is the first company to bring a commercial product to market that can deliver that performance.
The company said on Monday it was developing a new range of lithium ion rechargeable batteries, called Li-ion and Lithium-ion, that could power cars for 12-hours or more.
“The lithium ion can provide the highest energy density and the most energy density for an energy product,” said Peter Vos, Altec chief executive officer.
While there are some concerns about the battery’s durability, the company said its batteries could last for more than two years.
Unlike conventional batteries, the lithium ion is not a solid material, but is made up of a small number of tiny atoms.
Instead of having a battery that has to be separated and stored, the Altec battery can be stored for longer periods of time.
Lithium- ion batteries can store up to 1,000 times more energy than conventional lithium ion cells and can also be used to power a large number of devices, from mobile phones to small electric vehicles.
Li-ion batteries are also cheaper than their conventional counterparts.
A lithium ion cell costs between $300 and $1,000 for a new one and can last for up -8 to 14 years.
Lithium ion batteries last up to 20 years, compared to 18 years for conventional lithium ions.
