This week Komaki introduced a new fireproof battery in India as a solution. From next month, they will be used in all the electric vehicles of the company. Let us tell you that Komaki offers a few electric motorcycles as well as a variety of electric scooters in India. The new Komaki batteries use the popular lithium-ion battery, but they have something unique. Apart from this, it has also created a handy smartphone app to track the battery health. The app will alert end users and dealers about the condition of the battery at any point of time during use.
According to a statement from Komaki, its new EV battery has a lithium-ion phosphate (LiFePO4) configuration. These batteries are clearly more fire resistant than normal electric two-wheeler batteries. LiFePO4 batteries provide more protection due to the higher iron content in the cells. The company claims that the battery is more fire proof than other companies even in bad conditions.
To address the fire problem, Komaki also plans to reduce the number of cells in the battery pack by a third. Fewer cells will result in less heat buildup inside the battery pack. Komaki claims that its LiFePO4 battery life cycle is more than 2500-3000 compared to 800 life cycle of NMC battery.
Due to the new technology, if the EV is going to be repaired, then there is less chance of battery damage during this time. Also the innovative active balancing mechanism balances the battery cells in seconds. The application will be able to analyze up to 250 batteries in real time. According to the company’s data, the LiFePO4 battery can cover a distance of more than 300 km in a single charge. Whereas Komaki SE and TN95 cover a distance of 180 km in a single charge.
