The Ryden dual carbon battery, developed by Power Japan Plus, is a new, more sustainable, safer, longer-lasting and cost-effective battery technology. This high performance battery makes use of a completely unique chemistry, with both the anode and the cathode made of simple carbon. It also contains no metals, rare earth metals and no heavy metals, which is part of what makes it both cost competitive and sustainable.
The dual carbon design used in the battery, combined with an organic electrolyte, allows for a unique current flow within the battery. Positively charged lithium ions flow to the anode and the negatively charged anions flow to the cathode. This shortens the distance of current flow within the battery,allowing for faster charge and discharge.
The batteries have been bench tested over 3000 charge/discharge cycles with exceptional capacity stability.
Batteries packs and control electronics for EV applications are currently in development by Team Taisan.
Power Japan Plus may be on the way to balancing the energy storage equation for electric vehicles.
