DBM Energy Lithium metal polymer reported by cost 9 times less


Wall Street Daily - DBM Enery has developed a battery-powered electric car capable of driving 450 kilometers (279 miles) on a single charge. By comparison, the Nissan Leaf has a range of 160 kilometers (99 miles) per charge and Chevrolet’s Volt, about 70 kilometers (43 miles).

DBM Energy’s new advanced battery – Kolibri – is constructed with a special lithium metal polymer. Early reports suggest this battery will cost 89% less than existing batteries and will only need to be replaced approximately every 20 years.

The Kolibri battery has three other advantages

* Weight: A Kolibri is reportedly 29% lighter than the battery pack in a Tesla Roadster.

* Efficiency: A Kolibri has enough power to keep an Audi A2 cruising for an astonishing 400 miles on a single charge.

* Charging: You can fully charge a Kolibri battery in just six minutes. The Leaf takes closer to six hours.

April, 2011 - For over a year the KOLIBRI battery cells developed by DBM Energy have been performing reliably in electrically powered logistics vehicles. In October 2010, as part of a demonstration project, this innovative battery technology powered a conventional passenger car converted to electrical power over a distance exceeding 600 km, setting a worldwide record. 5,000 charging cycles document the range and longevity of the KOLIBRI LMP lithium-metal-polymer battery technology. Independent studies now also confirm the safety and performance of the KOLIBRI technology.

Green car reports verifies that the DBM Electric car battery is real.

Dekra has confirmed the Kolibri pack is not simply vaporware and seems to achieve the kind of figures its makers claim, larger scale testing is planned for later this year.

But don’t expect affordable 375 mile electric hatchbacks just yet. DBM and its battery pack will have some long term testing to satisfy before the cells even get near a major automaker.
