What are the benefits of our
A very high lifetime : 10 years
The quality of the cells of our systems, combined with our electronic management card, allows spectacular results.
The number of cycles that can be performed depends on several factors :
- The discharge power measured in C-Rate
- The depth of discharge (DoD)
- The environment: temperature, humidity, etc.
In standard environment, and for cycles performed at 1C, the estimated number of cycles for Olenergies 26650 energy storage systems is as follows:
- 2000 cycles at 100% discharge
- 3000 cycles minimum at 80% discharge
- 10,000 cycles at 55% discharge
For comparison: lead-acid is at about 400 cycles and NMC at 550.
At the end of the number of cycles performed, Olenergies batteries still have a nominal capacity greater than 80% of the original capacity; they will continue to operate for a long time !
The best money value on the market
All the advantages provided by Olenergies batteries immediately make the initial cost profitable, which is more than offset by a fourfold longer service life, superior reliability, excellent efficiency and a minimum weight and volume reduced by half !
Let’s stop the hell from cobalt mines
This name may not ring a bell, but Cobalt has invaded your daily life. Essential in new technologies, it is a component used by most battery manufacturers.
Half of the world’s cobalt is extracted from mines in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and it is estimated that 20 % of the cobalt in this country is mined by children in artisanal mines where the most basic safety conditions are not respected. In tracing the chain, Amnesty International identified that Apple, Dell, Huawei, Lenovo, LGor Hewlett Packard, Microsoft, Samsung, Vodafone, probably use ore from this sector….
Dependency on a country and a shortage to be expected
The choice of cobalt necessarily leads to high price volatility combined with a strong dependence on a country and its political situation: the DRC, which represents 62% of reserves… Very few markets are also dependent on a single country.
And this dependence is expected to increase. In five years’ time, the proportion of cobalt from the Central African country will rise to 70%…
However, it is now possible, thanks to LiFePo4 cell structures, to design batteries with a 5x lifetime and an inherent electrochemical safety.
This is the position and development choices implemented by Olenergies for all its products.
CHOOSING OLENERGIES MEANS CHOOSING SAFETY, PERFORMANCE AND ETHICS
Lithium-based technologies remain an area of intense research that promises to bring out batteries with ever-increasing densities, but not all lithium battery technologies are equal. Lithium cobalt technologies, produced with poorly controlled processes, used with rudimentary BMSs lead to the accidental fire epidemics of the “Hoverboards” recently experienced in the United States or South Korean smartphones, although announced as qualitative.
By its chemical and technological choices, Olenergies systems are among the safest on the market; the cells used are inherently non-combustible; they therefore present no danger.
Through its electronic management and management card, Olenergies systems are the most efficient and intelligent on the market; our priority objective will always be to optimize the aging of our systems and to fight against obsolescence.
Olenergies systems combine performance, ease of use and environmental protection.
