Advanced Battery Technologies Awarded Li-Ion Patent In China

ZQ Power-Tech, a wholly owned subsidiary of Advanced Battery Technologies, a developer and manufacturer of rechargeable Polymer-Lithium-Ion (PLI) batteries, has received a patent from The Intellectual Property Bureau of the People’s Republic of China for the invention of a nanomaterial lithium-ion battery and technology process.

The patent’s number is 200510087299X. The Company has started application for a corresponding US patent. With the granting of this new patent Advanced Battery Technologies, Inc. now holds a total of 8 patents, 7 of which are China patents and the other one a US patent, all in the area of battery technologies.

The batteries promise greater power capacity, longer cycle life and significantly shorter re-charge time than conventional li-ion batteries, according to the company, which sees great potential for application in powering electric vehicles.

This is good news. It will open broaden the field for nano-lithium rechargeable batteries production.

Increased competition from China will increase availablity and lower the cost within two to three years.

Chinese built PHEV/BEV quick charge batteries at $300/Kwh may be around by 2010/11. The $6000 for a 20 Kwh PHEV unit may be recouperated throught lower operation cost within 5 to 6 years.
