Ecolocap to Build Factory in Korea


Nano-Lithium Battery

What I recently said about the Ecolocap battery

On 18th March 2010 Ashish Arora, a scientific consultancy firm, performed extensive tests on a
special 9 cell Nano-Lithium battery made by a company called Ecolocap. What made the battery very special is that, while rated at 12 volts, it offers a massive 720 Ampere/Hours capacity. It does this without being much bigger or heavier than a small truck battery.

A typical battery of a similar size and weight would have a capacity of a mere 150 A/h or just over 20% of the capacity. But that’s not all that is different, this battery can deliver very high currents for extended periods, and additionally it can be charged at very high currents. This means that it would take just 20% of the time to charge up, 2 hours, or less, as against 10 hours, and it could deliver a massive blast of energy for a sustained period unlike a lead acid battery.

I advised not holding one's breath while waiting for delivery of this battery, given the hype by companies like EEstor which has been rattling on about their wonderful battery / supercapacitor for years - and have shown us NOTHING to date.


The technology buzz on the wires is that EcoloCap Solutions Inc. The same company that recently announced a major advance in Nano-Lithium Battery technology, and has shown us some of the test results to prove it, has hired Enersol Energy System Solutions, a US consultancy firm., to work on its plans to build a production factory in Korea!!!!

We, hopefully, should see some production within a year. If all the bits of the complicated jigsaw fit together, this could change the face of electric motoring!!! Not to mention provide a better storage option for wind power.

The company blurb with the usual "terms and conditions apply" tag:

"Following the independent test results from Exponent that confirmed the superiority of our battery technology, we are now focused on rapidly bringing the Nano Lithium X battery to market. With the help of Enersol's experienced team, we are prudently but expeditiously developing a roadmap to maximize value for our shareholders," said EcoloCap Solutions, Inc. CEO Michael Siegel.

Management is actively exploring strategic partnership opportunities with leading battery manufacturers in the U.S., Europe and Asia. With the lithium-ion battery market expected to reach $16 billion by 2020 in the U.S. alone, EcoloCap's Nano Lithium X batteries are entering the market at a perfect time. Strategic partnerships will help expedite the process of bringing the revolutionary batteries to market and position the Company to rapidly gain market share.

I believe the 1.17 Wh/l figure to be a mistake as Ecolocap has previously used 433 Wh/l, a much more realistic number. I've pointed this out to both Ecolocap and Enersol but they have yet to fix this.
