Accumulation of large, insoluble lead sulfate crystals leads to poor cycle life when lead-acid batteries are partially charged and discharged many times. The newest automobiles feature technologies like instant start-stop which place even greater demands on batteries. Graphene nanoplatelets, when added to normal electrode formulations, help solve this problem in the demanding world of today’s electric and hybrid vehicles.
Extending battery life with graphene nanoplatelets
At XG Sciences, we are looking at ways to improve cycle life, charge acceptance and charge storage in lead-acid batteries using xGnP® Graphene Nanoplatelets that are engineered for battery applications.
