Lithium Technology Corp. (LTC), a pilot line stage rechargeable lithium battery manufacturer, has announced that it has shipped a second prototype battery in preparation for testing in a 42V automotive application. The flat form factor of the 27Ah building block cells are expected to allow this battery to deliver a 200A current pulse with minimal heat generation while exceeding power output expectations even at -250C.

The company's first 42V prototype battery was shipped in September 2002, as a part of the Astor program, a consortium of seven European automakers assessing new on-board power sources. This battery continues to undergo testing in Europe.

"Our 42V prototypes represent the culmination of several years' worth of advanced technology and product development work in unique large format flat cell designs and large battery assemblies," LTC's president and COO, Dr. Franz Kruger, said.
