Hybrid Technologies Completes State of the Art Lithium Rapid Recharge System for NASA PT Cruiser


Hybrid Reduces Charge Time by 65% with Introduction of Lithium Supercharger Developed for NASA, and Federal Government Fleet Vehicles


New York, NY - August 1, 2007 - Hybrid Technologies, emerging leaders in the development and marketing of lithium-powered products worldwide, emerging leaders in the development and marketing of lithium-powered products worldwide, is pleased to announce that its has completed the development and testing of a highly advanced rapid charger system. The system was developed to satisfy the needs of Hybrid's Federal Government clientele such as NASA and the US Military.

A battery pack equivalent to 35-40 kWh system can be charged within 2.75 to 4 hours from 0% state of charge to 100% state of charge. The fast charger has been designed and fabricated at Hybrid Technologies research center and is flexible to operate under different conditions of constant current and pulse charge.

Hybrid was recently awarded a prestigious contract by the Canadian Federal Government as part of an advanced vehicle pilot program. The rapid charger system will insure that other contracts from Federal Fleets can easily be acquired.

The Battery and Electronic Division of Hybrid Technologies has developed this fast charge system based on kinetics, thermodynamics and transportation phenomenon related to lithium ion polymer systems. Hybrid's Battery Management System will protect all individual lithium ion polymer cells not only from overcharge and overheating, but also will perform charge balancing within 10 mV range. Battery chemistry, with the aid of the battery management system, has proved that 100% of rated capacity can be obtained using fast charger without affecting cycle life and battery safety.

The charging system is currently on the PT Cruiser models; however, engineers are developing this system for the full range of Hybrid vehicles.
