Re: K2 Energy ‘vs’ Calb
Comparing them for power applications:
K2 power cells: 44 s SDT
K2 energy cells: 81 s SDT
CALB cells: 163 s SDT
Therefore, for a given application, the K2 energy cells will be about twice as efficient as CALB cells and sag half as much, and the K2 power cells will be about 4 times as efficient as CALB cells and sag 1/4 as much.
K2 Energy Specs:
LFP 73AH Power Battery (1P)
(28P of LFP26650P)
AKA: LFP 300HPS
6.61 lbs each
For 1800A sag = 2.3V
For 1800A (268V sag voltage) = 116S (766 lbs)
For 1800A 12C:
40AH = (4P) 1920A (12 lbs)
60AH = (2P) 1440A (8.8 lbs)
100AH = (2P) 2400A (14.8 lbs)
Weight for 1800A (268V sag) voltage pack? most likely way over 1200lbs.
Facts I have confirmed with K2 Energy engineers:
When our batteries have plenty of state of charge in them, you won’t harm them by discharging at 1.6V (~3000Amps in our 73Ah module). As they get hot, it will reduce their cycle life…but it also helps with their discharge voltage level (being warmer raises the voltage).
For a 3000 A discharge, our 73Ah module will have a voltage of 1.6V. 2500A would put you at about 2.0V on one of our 73Ah modules.
A couple of graphs that should help. 2500 A out of a single 73Ah module translates to 89A per cell. At 50A, our power cells will sustain the ~2.4V level for roughly 2.25 minutes
