Lightweight OXIS lithium sulfur batteries a step closer for UK forces

OXIS Energy recently delivered the third phase of a research programme to improve its lithium sulfur cells for the Ministry of Defence (MOD) and Lincad Ltd, which designs and manufactures batteries, chargers, and power management systems for military and other specialist applications. The project is part of a wider research programme at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl). Improving lihtium sulfur cell capacity In Phase 3 OXIS developed an advanced prototype cell and pioneering chemistry that provides a 60% increase in capacity over that delivered in Phase 2 in 2013, increasing the specific energy of a cell to just under 300 Wh/kg. Over the coming months, it expects to achieve a further 20% increase in capacity using enhanced materials in the OXIS cells. Lithium sulfur cells have the potential to significantly reduce the weight of batteries that are curren...
