EcoSpeed Selects AllCell's Long-Lasting Lithium-ion Batteries

EcoSpeed Selects AllCell's Long-Lasting Lithium-ion Batteries

EcoSpeed, an industry leader in the design and manufacture of electric bicycle and tricycle conversion kits, announced its selection of AllCell Technologies to supply lithium-ion batteries. Protected by the company's proprietary thermal management system, AllCell's batteries provide the best combination of light weight and cycle life in the light electric vehicle (LEV) industry. The new batteries represent a major upgrade for EcoSpeed's customers, who will benefit from improved drive range and a standard two-year warranty.

EcoSpeed's change from lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries to AllCell's tri-metal (LiNiMnCoO2) batteries with an eye-popping energy density of over 165 Wh/kg cut the battery weight in half. The key to the improved battery size, weight, and performance is AllCell's patented phase change material (PCM) thermal management system. The PCM surrounds each lithium-ion cell in the battery pack, where it absorbs and conducts heat away from the cells as they heat up. This simple and effective technology requires no energy to operate and can double the cycle life of the battery pack.

The new battery is another example of EcoSpeed's constant pursuit of new technologies and product innovation that benefit both rider and environment. AllCell's batteries efficiently power EcoSpeed's unique mid-drive electric motor system which is positioned to spin the chain rather than built into the wheel like many electric systems. The main advantage of a mid-drive system is that the motor can run at full power, spinning at its most efficient rate, in each gear. This allows the rider to shift down and have amazing torque to climb steep hills and then still have great speed on level ground in higher gears.

According to EcoSpeed owner Brent Bolton, "We are very excited to be working with an American battery supplier, and we're even more excited about the quality of their batteries. You cannot find a smaller, lighter, longer lasting battery on the market. We firmly believe that one of the keys to developing outstanding products is starting with the best components, which is why we chose AllCell."

For AllCell CEO Said Al-Hallaj, "EcoSpeed is a great example of a new generation of e-mobility pioneers leading the coming transformation of our urban transportation systems. Electric cars have been getting a lot of press lately, but e-bikes and other light electric vehicles are more sustainable for urban mobility, more affordable, and more common. With our shared dedication to product quality and constant innovation, EcoSpeed is an ideal partner for AllCell as we continue to develop new low-carbon transportation options."

About AllCell Technologies
AllCell Technologies LLC offers customized thermal management solutions and battery packs for high power lithium-ion based systems in applications such as hybrid and electric automotives and light electric vehicles (i.e. electric scooters, electric bikes, and neighborhood electric vehicles). Their patented phase change material (PCM) surrounds each lithium-ion cell to absorb and conduct heat away from the battery, effectively doubling the life of the cells and preventing fire or damage to the battery. The PCM technology spun-out from Illinois Institute of Technology and AllCell developed its products as the first tenant in the state-funded incubator at University Technology Park at IIT.
