Leclanché announces new lithium battery module
Swiss battery manufacturer Leclanché has developed a new generation of lithium-ion modules for energy-intensive electrified transport applications on road, rail and water, while inaugurating a new production line for large-scale module manufacturing in Switzerland. According to Leclanché, the new modules, called M3, have a higher energy and power density compared to the previous generation and feature a long lifetime of up to 20,000 cycles with lithium titanate chemistry (LTO) or up to 8,000 cycles with graphite/nickel manganese cobalt oxide chemistry (G/NMC).
