Lithium ion

Lithium batteries enable our modern, electrified society

orange line
We have Li-ion batteries in electric cars, buses, mobile devices and computers. In fact, our society would probably not look the same without lithium battery technology.

The modern energy

Lithium ion is a relatively new rechargeable battery chemistry that is becoming more common. Li-ion batteries have a longer lifetime, better charging capabilities and are safer to use than the traditional lead-acid battery technology. Li-ion has the capability to store more energy in a smaller, lighter footprint, deliver full power to its maximum depth of discharge, and recharge faster and more often. The need for energy storage continues to increase as energy production from renewable sources, such as wind and solar, becomes more common. Li-ion batteries are also a more environmentally friendly technology, which complements renewable resource technology.

The technology behind lithium

Li-ion batteries use different electrode materials extract energy from lithium ions moving between the electrodes in the battery. By using different compositions in anode and cathode materials and electrolyte, the battery delivers different performance parameters.

Micropower uses the lithium ion battery chemistry NCA (lithium nickel cobalt aluminum oxide) that is standard in the automotive industry, and provides world-class performance, energy density and safety. The system is based on battery modules that make it possible to configure and commission advanced and secure battery systems quickly, with reduced shipping and inventory.

The modular Li-ion battery system

Micropower launched the flexible and modular Li-ion BRIX concept in 2017, which enables customers to configure and assemble batteries according to specific application demands. Together with Micropower's battery chargers and system solutions, Micropower can offer the industry a complete Li-ion battery system with the possibility of full integration.

Li-ion battery solutions manufactured in Sweden

Micropower's modern, fully automated battery factory in Växjö, was built to manufacture Li-ion products and systems for energy storage to suit our customers' needs. Our highly efficient facility was thoughtfully designed to have lowest possible environmental impact.
