The disruptive technology firm DESTEN Inc., known for its groundbreaking work in Lithium-ion innovations for transportation and energy storage, has received the Gold Medal at the 2023 Edison Awards. The company won the prestigious award in the fiercely contested EV Battery Enhancement Category. It managed to stand out in a field that included industry behemoths such as General Motors and SK On.
Why It Matters
DESTEN Inc.’s award-winning creation, the 19Ah 10C Ultra-Fast Charging Lithium-Ion Cell, drastically reduces charging wait times to under five minutes, all while maintaining an impressive lifecycle of more than 3,000 cycles. This advanced technology implies over 1.5 million miles of lifetime vehicle range for a 70kWh battery pack. It signifies a significant step towards addressing prevalent adoption challenges in the EV industry, such as charging wait times and range anxiety, particularly in urban environments.
One of the remarkable features of DESTEN’s cell technology is its thermal and chemical stability. Charging at 10C only increases the temperature by a manageable 15 degrees centigrade. This stability has far-reaching implications, including reduced infrastructure requirements for battery packs, less power consumption during operation, and enhanced safety.
The Edison Awards, named in honor of the great inventor Thomas Alva Edison, are a universally acknowledged benchmark for innovation. They celebrate the most ingenious products and services worldwide. An independent panel of industry experts and academics selected DESTEN Inc. as the winner, assessing each product for its impact, innovation, and market potential. DESTEN Inc.’s EV battery enhancement technology was lauded for its superior charging performance, safety, longevity, and environmental sustainability.
As the recipient of the Gold Medal in the EV Battery Enhancement Category, DESTEN Inc. is solidifying its commitment to innovation, as stated by Bader Al-Rezaihan, the company’s Chairman and CEO. According to Al-Rezaihan, DESTEN’s technology has the potential to radically transform the EV industry and accelerate the shift towards more sustainable solutions, which will help reduce global carbon emissions.
This recognition from the Edison Awards places DESTEN Inc. in a prime position to make a substantial impact in the e-mobility industry and lead the way towards a more sustainable future.
