Start-Stop Batteries- now a new type of Micro Hybrid Battery from Johnson Controls

Start-Stop Batteries now Micro Hybrid Battery-Johnson Controls

As I have stated many times Johnson Controls Aldershot are the World leading car battery makers, they now have battery production plants all over the Planet. Johnson Controls make the batteries that we sell under the name of Lucas and Numax.

Their latest project was the invention of “ star-stop” technology, now in use on many new car models in the States and Europe. These batteries can cut fuel bills by as much as 8% and they work by the car engine stopping and then restarting at say a busy road junction, saving the car engine from idling and therefore saving fuel.

Start-Stop Batteries

The new Micro hybrid  battery

The next challenge from Johnson Controls was to make cars even more fuel efficient, without the use of the massive cumbersome batteries now used on the latest EV vehicles.

New 48volt Micro Hybrid battery are the next generation from Johnson Controls

This new 48 volt micro hybrid battery will be to power the cars electrics while the car will also require a small 12 volt starter battery similar to the 054 battery that is used today. The new battery uses Lithium-Ion technology, but is far more compact for car use than its predecessors.

This new micro hybrid  battery is expected to lower emissions and improve the cars fuel economy to help make a greener planet. Another good point is that this battery is expected to be a cheap battery compared with the massive price tags on the Lithium-Ion batteries used on the EV electric vehicles that are in use today.

This new 48 volt micro hybrid battery looks like being a winner and is expected to save 15% on the cost of fuel a claim that is interesting car makers all over the World…More Reading…

The new micro hybrid battery is expected to be on show at the North American national Auto Show in Detroit, on the 14th January 2014. According to Alex Molinaroli Johnson Controls president…

“Johnson Controls sees opportunities for the development of evolutionary energy storage systems that offer even more fuel efficiency than Start-Stop at less cost than a

hybrid or electric vehicle,” said Alex Molinaroli, president, Johnson Controls Power Solutions. “Even as Start-Stop vehicles become part of the mainstream in Europe and start to take hold in the U.S., Micro Hybrid technology has the potential to deliver the next level of fuel efficiency along the spectrum of vehicle performance, reaching upwards of 15 to 20 % in fuel economy.”

I personally am looking forward to the challenges ahead in the battery world and Johnson Controls appear to be one of the leading players.

Ford, University of Michigan Open New Battery Lab

Sci-Tech Today

A new $8 million battery lab at the University of Michigan will help develop Ford Car Batteries that are smaller, lighter and less expensive to make.

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

FORD TO INJECT MONEY INTO MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY FOR BATTERY DEVELOPMENT

The University of Michigan will soon be setting up a new department, to study and develop new Ford Car Batteries, with the financial help of Fords .

The Ford Car Batteries will be developed for there longevity quality and their endurance

It is a known fact that the electric car has been a slow seller for the Ford Motor Company and it will also be important to develop a battery that is a cheap battery, it will be one of Fords priorities to bring down the price of these Ford Car Batteries.

Electric cars have been very slow to take off, reaching only 1% of the American car market in the year that’s just passed. The Hybrid cars (EV”S) a mix of petrol and battery power  have fared better, taking up just 3% of the total market.

This in part is due to the  high cost of these cars, due mainly to the lithium-ion batteries that are the main source of battery power at the present time.

With the help of  a $5 mil grant this new university department is expected to develop a cheaper alternative battery ,that is hoped will bring down the cost of the Ford Car Batteries and the Ford electric cars.

Recycling Li-On batteries

Lithium-Ion batteries may be used to store solar energy in the future as a form of Recycling Li-On batteries

Post updated  18/3/2014

Motor-Trades Insight Recycling Li-On batteries

Recycling electric car batteries to provide power to homes could mean ‘an end …

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

We are already talking about a second use for the old electric car batteries ?

Four partner companies in the North East of England, they are Opus Green, SR Technologies, together with Tadea and Gateshead College. They are looking at the possibility of using Recycling Li-On batteries that will be changed at the end of life period after say ten years, on such cars as the Nissan Leaf.

The companies are trying to come with ideas about the use of Recycling Li-On batteries in conjunction  with solar panels and wind turbines, to store energy for use at night time, rather than just put the electricity used into the National Grid. We have such solar panels on our roof and the electricity generated is transmitted via inverter and an electric meter into the grid here in the UK.

All this working project will be carried out at Gateshead College research and development department at Barmston Road in Sunderland, in the North East of England. The EV batteries will be tested on sight at the college and will be used to power equipment that will be used on demonstration. In my opinion I cannot see why it should fail, once they found a way for the solar panels to charge up Lithium-Ion batteries. I know that there have been many other types of experiments in this field even using large banks of Trojan  batteries can be made to work-.

“Malcolm Potter, Project Manager at Tadea said “This is a very exciting project for tadea to be involved in and as it’s the first of its kind within in UK to focus on how to extend the life of these batteries it’s hoped that the results will lead to further developmental work in this field.”

Great way to use lithium-ion batteries

This is one of the most productive ways I have seen. Hence, to produce battery power from lithium technology. Including, the run of things going wrong with this battery type.

May be coming to an end but only time will tell. Scientists that constructed this giant  bank. As a result, must be confident of its success.Experimenting, by using smaller banks.So before en- barking on this massive 1440 batteries in one system. Also noticing the large amount of fire extinguishers in the image.

lithium-Ion technology is now used on many applications.Therefore, I have just been offered some 22amp golf batteries built with Lithium technology. Of course,I am not sure if they stand the test of time. Thus, regarding the fire problems that they have been only time will tell. Of course,the use of them in battery storage will be strictly controlled by temperature monitoring having on certain aircraft, i suppose devices, so i suppose that the overheating and fire problem will not exist.

To update this post, Lithium-ion batteries are now taking off and are used on a number of applications. These are from portable power drills to golf trolley and mobility vehicles. i still feel though that other technologies will be around in the near future, including our old favorite, lead acid batteries.

Vintage Car Batteries

Some of our battery customers leave things right up to the last minute. Most of these are people who are just going of on there holidays in a caravan or motorhome, only to find out that their batteries are flat, just before they set off on there journey.

We manage to get a battery off to them most times but I have admit not all the time,(couriers can be next to useless).

However last week we received a call from a guy who lived in a nice part of the country at the far end of the Humber Bridge, in a little town called Barton on Humber. The weather was lovely and sunny, but when he tried to start his vintage car, the batteries were flat and indeed the old  Car Batteries were completely de-funked.

He needed 2×421 vintage hard rubber Classic Car Batteries and fast. Barton is not too far from Halifax and so I sent him the batteries by express couriers, (namely ME). It was a beautiful sunny day,(for a change) and so I delivered his Vintage Batteries, just to the Lincolnshire end of the Bridge.

Customer received his 2x 6 volt 421 Vintage Car Batteries and was highly delighted with the service.

I was also pleased with my work and enjoyed a wonderful day looking at the wonderfully picturesque Humber Bridge.

They were imported with many battery part numbers .Coming into the UK and the USA that were unfamiliar to the British battery manufacturers .

Yuasa batteries actually started producing batteries in the USA in 1979. Producing car and AGM batteries . Hence,In 1996 the great Lucas empire . Merged with the American company Varity Corporation and the UK part of the company.

For these reasons, it is important to keep your vehicle in tiptop shape for as long as possible, and this could be achieved with proper auto maintenance. Apart from the periodic oil changes and tune-ups, it is also crucial that your car be installed with dependable and well-performing Lucas Premium Batteries.

Majority of the world’s vehicle owners drive cars run on fossil fuels, but these cars require electric energy as well.

In addition, nearly all new car models have an on-board computer which is also powered by electricity supplied by car batteries. Suffice it to say, people must pay as much attention to their car batteries as other aspects of their cars. There are numerous dealers of well-known brands such as Tungstone, Varta, and Lucas , and they can be found at regular shops or online.

the battery’s reserve capacity. This is an important element in choosing a good car battery because it determines how long the battery can supply the required electrical power in case the car’s alternator fails to function.

Cold cranking amps or CCA refers to your power rating in terms of its ability to start your vehicle and supply electrical power even during extremely cold weather. Naturally, you will have to choose a new product with a rating higher than or equal to car’s original one. This will ensure that your car will continue to operate smoothly even in the harshest winters. Last but not least is the brand of the car battery. There are many brands to choose from but only a handful are reliable and of good quality. In the UK, you can easily find Lucas Premium Batteries for any type of vehicle.
