With human intervention, today we are witnessing the grim picture of climatic catastrophe. The climatic anomaly has forced humans to innovate responsible energy solutions and alternatives to fill the irreversible damages. The revolution of e-mobility is one such adoption to serve this irreversible disruption.
Breaking the barrier of energy, Log9 Materials is leaving no cornerstone unturned to drive the innovation in the energy solutions. At Log9, they are paving a new path by harnessing the power of science for positive change. Their innovative, deep tech-driven approach ensures that whatever they create is done with the future impact, inculcating the habit of “being responsible” at every step.
To have an internal insight into the battery technology Industry, ELE times Sub Editor Sheeba Chauhan had an exclusive conversation with Dr Akshay Singhal, Founder and CEO, Log9 Materials.
The range of products/solutions by Log9 Materials– RapidX battery series: The Log9 RapidX series of batteries are the safest EV batteries in India and the tropical world, designed to efficiently power electric vehicles across all Indian and tropical conditions. Built using patented high-power cell technology, the RapidX batteries powered by Log9’s InstaCharge battery tech are extremely durable, with the ability to last longer than conventional batteries without losing their efficiency. Furthermore, the RapidX batteries provide 9x faster charging, 9x better performance, and 9x battery life. Log9’s InstaCharge technology brings down the total charging time which further optimizes the utilization of charging infrastructure and operational profitability; furthermore, these batteries are built to operate across -30° to 60° C and come with an operational life of 15,000+ cycles. Under the RapidX series, Log9 has to date launched two variants – RapidX 2000 ad RapidX 6000 batteries, which can fully charge an e-2W in 15 minutes and e-3W in 40 minutes.
ZappUp: ZappUp is a cutting-edge energy storage solution by Log9 that effectively regulates and stabilizes supply-demand mismatch by bridging the current gaps in the electric grid. ZappUp can be applied to considerable power and energy services ranging from fast-response ancillary grid services to energy arbitrage and so on. ZappUp’s features allow it to be used and operated in versatile applications like microgrids, UPS’, data-centres, telecoms, grid-level energy storage, and industrial applications like forklifts, robotics, and AGVs.
Application Industries: The primary application of Log9’s RapidX batteries is in the EV industry, across various EV platforms.
Sales Network – Market Presence: Log9 Materials has to date sold and deployed 2000+ RapidX batteries across the EV market in India. The company has tied up with major OEM; s in #-wheeler and 2- Wheeler vehicle platforms such as Omega Seiki Mobility, Hero Electric, and JMT among others.
