SANYO unveils lithium-ion battery systems for solar cell systems, electric vehicles

Japanese electrical giant SANYO Electric has developed two new large-capacity, high-voltage lithium-ion battery systems. SANYO will begin mass production of the new products in March 2010.

With features including high energy density, superior safety, and high voltage, SANYO has been leading the way in the market for lithium-ion batteries used in information devices such as laptop computers and cell phones.

Since 2004, SANYO has been using its technologies to develop large-scale lithium-ion battery systems, to help contribute towards the realization of a low-carbon society. After extensive verification testing and trial applications both inside and outside the company, SANYO now has large lithium-ion battery systems that are ready for the market.

SANYO will launch a line-up of two large lithium-ion battery system models. The Standard Battery System for Energy Storage (DCB-101) can be easily incorporated into existing systems as part of hybrid schemes using solar cells. It can store electricity generated by wind power, or used for electrical output stabilization. It can also be used as a backup power source for servers or cell phone base stations.

In addition, the Standard Battery System for Electric Motors (EVB-101) can be used to power light electric vehicles that are in the R&D or small-scale mass production stages.
