Altreonic Kurt.mobi signs MOU with Chinese partner to further develop its game changing battery technology

7 December 2018

Altreonic Kurt.mobi and Tomen Energy in Shenzhen signed an MOU for a Joint Venture to further develop the market for game-changing battery technology.


Based on a patented novel type of carbon-based super capacitor, the battery will make electric vehicles become more like traditional ICE vehicles with fast charging and smooth operating from -40°C, resp. -20°C to +50°C. No complex Battery Management System and no active cooling is needed. The battery itself remains very cool due to its very low internal resistance. With these innovations, thermal run-away risks will be a thing of the past. The batteries have a very long life time (20000 cycles and more) so that no costly midlife replacements are needed. Overall, the novel batteries are a significant step towards a practical transition to a clean and sustainable electricity-driven world.


The technology itself is unique and, for the first time, combines the energy density of traditional Li-ion batteries with the inherent safety and lifetime properties of super capacitors. The technology also allows production of different versions of the cells with more or less energy density of more or less power density. Hence, batteries can be charged and expended much faster (up to 20 times for the power type of cells) without jeopardizing their lifetime or safety. At system level, this translates into smaller batteries and lower energy consumption whereby vehicles can rapidly charge when stopping for a short time.

The battery technology itself has multiple uses including vehicle batteries, booster batteries, starter batteries, charging stations, energy storage, and frequency adaptors as well as applications whereby energy has to be very quickly stored or expended. Tests have shown that, for example, gasoline powered cars equipped with such a battery have a lower fuel consumption (up to 16 %) because the battery maintains a constant higher voltage at the spark plugs than is possible with a lead-acid battery.
