Epsilor has developed a new Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) 6T battery for military armoured vehicle applications, the company announced on 8 January.

The ELP-24V2740Wh-6T is a 2.76 kWh 6T battery. The battery has a life cycle of more than 3,000 charges and discharge cycles in a typical operational profile, enabling it to operate for approximately ten years with no need for maintenance or replacement.

Based on LiFePO4 cells, Epsilor’s new 6T is extremely safe according to the company, featuring a high thermal runaway onset temperature and a lower probability to ignite in the event of crushing or penetration.

Ronen Badichi, president of Epsilor, said: ‘Today we can offer customers a 6T battery with the highest energy density for long silent watch missions, as well as a safer battery that can be installed inside a crew compartment of legacy vehicles.

‘During the upcoming months, we will complete a series of bullet penetration tests on this new product. At the end of these tests, we will provide our customers with a safe, durable, fire protected and cost-effective solution that will enable sufficient crew protection and mission continuity, even under enemy fire.’
