50 years on since the moon landing - VARTA batteries were on board

50 years on since the first moon landing, VARTA too is marking an anniversary: batteries from Ellwangen-based battery manufacturer VARTA were on board with the crew. Photos of the first moon landing 50 years ago were captured using a camera equipped with VARTA batteries.

Lithium-ion battery prices may rise

Lithium-ion battery prices may rise

EVs are and will remain by far the largest market for LIB. LIB supply commitments increase all the time with China the most ambitious. Thailand is getting into LIB battery making in a big way and may offer 50-100 GWh in 2030, helping to close the gap in supply vs demand. The Europeans may do the same eventually. However, just one successful EV car model can need 100GWh/year.

Bosch extends the service life of electric vehicle batteries

Bosch extends the service life of electric vehicle batteries

Stress makes cells age faster. Something that geneticists have long since demonstrated for the human body is also true for electric-vehicle battery cells. The older the batteries get, the lower their performance and capacity, and the shorter the range of the vehicle. To help batteries last longer, Bosch is developing new cloud services that supplement the individual vehicles' battery-management systems.

Shortage of Lithium-ion Batteries: How to Cope

Shortage of Lithium-ion Batteries: How to Cope

Shortage of lithium-ion batteries is probable. Too few gigafactories. Too many burning batteries: factories shut to sort out their problems. The US-China trade war cuts off materials. Inadequate lithium or cobalt mining.
