Johnson controls are a leading battery pack company
This is yet another major step that Johnson controls are involved in, a realistic sized Lithium Ion Battery Pack.
One of the new range of Lithium Ion Rechargeable Battery will be used to power a boat outboard motors and electric motors made by Torqeedo a German boat manufacturer who will use these new Leisure Batteries, (that will be made in Johnson controls Holland plant). The new marine batteries are to made from a
modified version of its plug in Hybrid electric vehicle battery, that will be waterproof and will not be effected by the salt water on marine boats.
Johnson Controls are one of the largest manufacturers of 12 v lead acid batteries in the world and are now getting involved in making batteries from the new technology era that we are getting into. Some of the new types of batteries are creating some problems at the moment for the scientists to find answers to.This includes overheating and the length of time that these batteries will last on one charge, but i am sure that answers are imminent in the near future.
Hi I would like to introduce myself. I have worked in the Garage and tyre and Battery business now for 40 years.
