Lithium Technology Corp. (LTC, Plymouth Meeting, PA) announced that it has shipped a second prototype battery in preparation for testing in a 42V automotive application. The flat form factor of the 27Ah building block cells allow the battery to deliver a 200A current pulse with minimal heat generation while exceeding power output expectations even at -25 degrees C.

LTC President and Chief Operating Officer Franz Kruger said, "Our 42V prototypes represent the culmination of several years worth of advanced technology and product development work in unique large-format flat cell designs and large battery assemblies."
