Meet GIGACELL, the next-generation high-capacity nickel-metal hydride battery.
With great capabilities in rapid charging and discharging, it can be installed onboard streetcars (LRV), inside the battery power system (BPS) for railways,
or can be used for stabilizing output electricity generated from natural energies such as wind and solar power.
Designed to be friendly to the environment, it is a battery committed to the efficient use of energy, and the reduction of CO2 emissions.
The bipolar 3D design allows for the increase of both the number and capacity of cells in each module. Batteries of extremely large capacities could be made.
Rapid Charge and Discharge
Low internal resistance enables fast charging and discharging.
Excellent Cycle Durability
Designed to withstand frequent cycles of short, rapid charging and discharging.
No lead, mercury, cadmium or other toxic materials are used.
Simple and Safe
Temperature remains relatively low during operation, so there are no restrictions for the installation of the battery. Water-based electrolyte is used, eliminating the risk of fire.
Easy to Recycle
No welding is used on the cell cases, so they can be easily disassembled for recycling.
