Electric Bike Technologies and AllCell Technologies partner on Li-ion batteries for e-bike conversions
Electric Bike Technologies LLC (makers of the E-BikeKit electric bike conversion kit) and AllCell Technologies signed a Memorandum of Understanding jointly to promote and to sell lithium-ion batteries for use in electric bike conversions.
A central objective of the partnership is to displace imported batteries, the high failure rates of which have hampered the industry, according to the partners.
By combining AllCell’s lightweight, compact, and long-lasting batteries with Electric Bike Technologies’ marketing, retailing, and customer service expertise the two firms intend to create a compelling value proposition for both consumers and bike dealers. A few of AllCell’s battery models are already available for purchase through the E-BikeKit website, with an enhanced offering coming soon.
AllCell’s patented thermal management technology employs a phase change material (PCM) composite to rapidly absorb and distribute the heat generated during battery discharge. Because AllCell’s proprietary PCM composite operates passively, it functions even when the bike is not in use, protecting the battery from solar loading on hot summer days as well. By preventing the lithium-ion cells from overheating, AllCell is able to build high energy density batteries with extended cycle life and maximum safety.
