A form of rechargeable battery known as a lithium-titanate or lithium-titanium-oxide (LTO) battery has the benefit of charging more quickly than conventional lithium-ion batteries, but the drawback of having a significantly lower energy density Titanium-lithium battery.
Lithium titanate is frequently used in electric vehicles, UPS systems, and solar-powered street lighting. LTO battery anodes have recently been tested for usage in applications for EVs, HEVs, Energy Storage Systems (ESS), and supercapacitors.
The global lithium titanium oxide (LTO) battery cell market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
The significance of urban micro mobility programmes In a joint effort with Toshiba, ZapBatt has developed a new battery option for the micromobility industry by fusing Toshiba’s lithium titanium oxide (LTO) battery cells with its next-generation battery hardware and unique artificial intelligence (AI) software technology.
Lithium titanium oxide battery systems are made faster, wiser, and more affordable thanks to this combination technology, which also enables real-time battery management and optimization. The strong performance attributes of Toshiba’s LTO cells make them perfect for micro-mobility applications.
The SCiB Cells have minimal function loss even after countless charges and uses and are built for high-power and fast charging settings. The cells offer a useful charge of up to 100%, enabling prolonged use.
The battery chemistry is effectively resistant to thermal runaway and battery fires due to the lack of carbon on the anode surfaces and the fact that LTO is free of these oxides (similar to lithium-iron-phosphate).
In addition to the Toshiba SCiB cells, the ZapBatt software continuously enhances battery performance through the use of unique hardware and machine learning.
In order to enhance charging operations, the company’s software examines 26 data points that show how the battery functions, effectively communicating with the battery and making modifications.
The system will become even more energy-efficient as time goes on thanks to the data the batteries will eventually supply.The cells also function in subfreezing temperatures as low as -30 degrees Celsius, as opposed to 0 degrees Celsius for standard Li-ion batteries.
Virtually minimal risk of self-thermal runaway exists with LTO batteries. The lithium-ion batteries that contain oxides of nickel, manganese, aluminum, or cobalt are to blame for the majority of micro-mobility fires. Chemical fires of this kind often happen when a battery is pierced, suffers damage, was improperly built, was used excessively, or malfunctions internally.
