Greater Bay Technology unveils battery that works in any temperature

The majority of battery startups try to tackle one issue at a time - energy density, charging times, and temperature resistance. The GBT decided to go after all three at once, and it unveiled its Phoenix battery cell that promises the end of many issues plaguing current electric car batteries.

electric cars and cold climates just don’t work together.  Current technology means battery range drops dramatically as soon as temperatures start hovering around freezing levels.  The Phoenix battery cell uses superconducting materials, and thanks to new thermal management, it can heat its cells from -20°C to +25°C in just 5 minutes.  That’s an optimal temperature for a lithium-ion battery, and the new tech keeps that temperature steady regardless of external conditions.
