K2 Energy Announces New K2 Ultra Line of High-Power Cells, Batteries and Packs

K2 Energy announced new K2 Ultra Line of high-power cells, batteries and packs. The cells in the Ultra line will offer increased energy density at a lower internal resistance and impedance, without compromising the safety or longevity. The first to be released from the K2 Ultra Line is the Next Generation Ultra Power Cell and is available in two form factors the 18650UP, a 3.3 volt -1.35 amp hour cell, and the 26650UP, a 3.3 volt -2.85 amp hour cell. These cells offer both higher power and greater energy to meet the needs of users across a broad spectrum of devices and operations. K2's cells, packs, and systems do not experience thermal runaway as compared to traditional lithium-ion batteries making them safer for consumers, especially while charging. K2's cells can also perform safely in extreme temperatures, ranging from -40 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius.

K2 Energy Solutions, Inc. Receives Navy Phase I SBIR for the Development of High-Power LFP Prismatic Cell with Enhanced Thermal Management

K2 Energy Solutions, Inc. (K2) announced it has been awarded a US Navy Phase I SBIR for the development of a Lithium Iron Phosphate prismatic cell capable of supporting a number of anticipated Navy high power applications. The new cell will incorporate K2's advanced LFP electrode designs, resulting in a light weight, high capacity battery capable of operating in challenging thermal environments while maintaining the intrinsic safety of K2's LFP technology. The Navy contract will allow K2 Energy to adapt and optimize its Lithium-Ion battery technology for use in large, versatile prismatic cells that will feature the high power and high capacity of K2's next generation systems. These cells are intended for the Navy's use in a variety of shipboard applications. Large prismatic cells are increasingly being used in commercial and industrial applications because of their thin profile, reduced weight, and efficient use of space compared to traditional cylindrical cells. However, the large prismatic cell designs commonly used commercially are incapable of producing the high power levels required by many anticipated Navy shipboard applications without severely compromising the cells' service life or operational safety. K2 manufactures high power cylindrical cells that are currently used in the Navy's electromagnetic railgun program, as well as many other applications. The goal of K2's Navy SBIR contract is to adapt K2's high power cell technology to a prismatic design better suited to the construction of large batteries. This research and development program will minimize temperature surges during heavy use and maximize battery life without compromising safety.
