TOKYO, Toshiba Corporation, a company dedicated to advancing carbon neutrality through its technologies, products and services, today expanded its SCIBTM product offering with the launch of an innovative 20Ah-HP lithium ion rechargeable battery cell that delivers high energy and high power at the same time.

The market wants batteries that deliver both high-energy and high-power characteristics, but until now this has required a trade-off for lithium-ion rechargeable batteries. In an EV, for example, a high-energy battery allows the vehicle to drive further on a single charge-but it lowers power input and output and extends charge times. Toshiba drew on its know-how in current high-energy and high power products to develop a new cell that successfully combines the advantages of both.

The cell is ideal for heavy-load applications where high power input and output are essential, and for situations where battery cells must suppress heat and operate continuously, such as rapid charging of commercial vehicles, regenerative power systems for rolling stock, and industrial equipment. The cell is the same size as Toshiba’s current 20Ah product, allowing current customers to easily upgrade to the improved input and output power with the same module pack. The cell is now available to order worldwide.
