U.S. Sion Power has announced its plans to begin production of lithium-metal batteries by the end of the year. In cooperation with BASF it seeks to further develop so-called Licerion batteries, which use lithium-metal anodes.
Sion Power has opted to work together with BASF in order to ready its Li-metal batteries for production later this year. Their Licerion batteries can be used in electric cars and drones as well.
The producers promise energy densities of 500 Wh/kg or 1000 Wh/l and 450 charging cycles.
