The batteries are being called ‘Pure Lithium’
Pure EV says these batteries are designed to work under a wide range of environmental conditions
The company has a current battery manufacturing capacity of 5MWh per month
The batteries are being used in medical applications such as ventilators and automated sanitation devices, among other technology, under the brand name ‘Pure Lithium.’
The start-up is incubated by IIT-Hyderabad and is working on applications for its in-house manufactured lithium batteries. These are primarily used in green vehicles sold under the Pure EV brand.
The company says that the comparative advantages of Pure Lithium to traditional batteries is on the back of it being lightweight, thus enabling easier portability and transportation. The batteries provide high discharge currents; they are also designed for a wide range of environmental conditions, with customised casings and insulation.
The batteries provide significantly longer charging/discharging cycles than the standard VRLA (Valve Regulated Lead Acid) batteries.
At present, the current battery manufacturing capacity of the company’s facility is 5MWh per month.
