Providing the power and energy to drive hybrid-electric vehicles, plug-in electric vehicles, and battery-electric vehicles of the future, Compact Power Inc. (CPI) is developing lithium-ion batteries that can displace the nickel metal-hydride batteries currently being used. A subsidiary of LG Chem, CPI is making Li-ion batteries that provide equivalent energy for longer periods of time at a similar size and at half the weight of NiMH. Li-ion batteries also are less harmful to the environment than NiMH batteries, according to CPI, while lowering harmful emissions and lessening dependence on foreign oil. Additionally, CPI uses easily recyclable material supporting landfill-free battery systems.
