a wholly owned subsidiary of Kabra Extrusion technik Limited (KET), launched
its Dual Power Electric Vehicle (EV) smart batteries.
dual power electric vehicle smart batteries are a high-capacity 4kWh portable
and swappable smart battery packs which are highly reliable, safe and robust
for Indian drive conditions. The pack uses two 2kWh smart battery packs in
parallel or series designed based on the patented European technology which has
been licensed to Kabra Extrusion technik Limited.
Kabra, Managing Director, KET,said, “Electric 2 and 3 wheelers have started
gaining momentum in India, especially in the year 2021.Our products are aimed
to be technologically advanced, extremely safe and economically viable, which
can be rapidly adopted by users. This particular product has the performance
and reliability to provide impetus to the next generation e-mobility solutions
in the country.”
smart battery can use either a Master-slave or a Master-master Technology with
twin smart battery packs which are interconnected and easy to swap. The modular
and compact design is enabled with liquid cooling, the gravimetric energy
density and volumetric energy density found to be remarkably high. If the pack
is cooled by natural-air then gravimetric energy is found to be 180 Wh/kg. One
of the significant advantages of dual power is that one pack can be used for
powering the vehicle while simultaneously, the other substitutes for charging
at home. This negates the customer’s concerns for charging time or waiting at
charging stations,” added Kabra.
thermally, well-optimized packs with advanced cooling technology give a clear
advantage of a longer battery life and fast charging. The packs launched are
also water and dust resistant with an IP – 67 rating. The smart battery packs
are designed to sustain vibrations and shocks of the Indian drive conditions.
The dual smart battery serves as a range extender, benefitting the end customer
for longer drives.
