As electric two-wheeler fires plunge sales for several players amid government investigations, EV company Komaki on Tuesday said it has launched refractory batteries in India which will be available in all commercial vehicles from next month.

According to the company, it has launched lithium-ion ferrophosphate (LiFePO4) batteries, which are more fire-resistant.

“This breakthrough will further establish Komaki as a trusted brand in the market. We have developed an easy-to-use mobile application that will inform end users and dealers about battery status,” said Gunjan. malhotraDirector, Komaki Electric Division.

“It also allows original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to repair the batteries from a central location. This prevents unnecessary back and forth of batteries that could lead to transport damage,” added Malhotra.

The cells in the LiFePO4 batteries contain iron, which makes the batteries better protected against fire even in extreme cases, the company said.

The number of cells has also been reduced by a third, which will reduce the cumulative heat generated in the battery pack.

LiFePO4 has a life cycle of 2500-3000, which is much more compared to 800 life cycle in NMC (nickel, manganese and cobalt) batteries.

The company had the ranger and Venice electric two-wheelers and the DT 3000 in the country earlier this year.

Komaki said an active balancing mechanism has been developed and added to the batteries to actively balance the battery cells every few seconds.

“The hardware battery management system (BMS) has now been changed to an advanced communications-based protocol, which will read and update the battery status every second,” the company said.

The LiFePO4 battery claims a mileage of over 300 km on a single charge in the Komaki Venice vehicle and 180 km in Komaki SE and TN95, which is higher than the previously installed batteries.

The developed application will replace analysis machines which cost about Rs 12 – Rs 15 lakh for 12 channels.

“The new application developed by Komaki can analyze 250 batteries simultaneously with real-time updates every second.

Komaki offers nine low-speed models and six high-speed registration models.
