The BA-CC1 is the first 18650 Battery Cycler launched by Battery Associates. It aims to achieve Battery Associates' objectives of developing a new generation of cyclers that are simple, smart, affordable and allow data sharing between battery testing community.
Battery development is crucial in energy transition and fast development of batteries is a pressing challenge in the energy sector. So, we need to develop a way of testing batteries which helps in increasing battery research.
Battery cell test equipment constitutes a barrier to the reuse of battery cells globally. By creating an intelligent and affordable battery cycler, B.A tackles some of the most overlooked issues in the battery space:
Price: Most existing battery cyclers are expensive and over-engineered
Adaptability: Existing battery cyclers cannot be modified and are a “black box”
Cloud: Existing battery cyclers do not save data online and lack analytics
Community: Existing cyclers lack a supportive community around them
Battery Cycler: A Simple Hardware
Our hardware is simple to use, allows any user to use it and can be connected easily to any WIFI network. Also, it can be powered through USB-C power adapter.
Unique Web portal for Control & Monitoring
The Web Portal is designed to allow the user to simply monitor and control the cycler.
No additional software required on the computer
Connect with the cycler through any device
Control the cycler remotely and access the experiment data anywhere
Easily share the data with your team or with the community
Access previous tests and all other tests shared by the community
A multisectoral ecosystem
In addition to its hardware and cloud solutions, B.A is building an educational curriculum to accompany the broadening use of battery cyclers. Through a set of courses, B.A will target public sector institutions, universities, and labs around the world to empower students and individuals around battery cell testing.
B.A will meet its objectives through the following steps:
Sourcing and producing cost-effective cyclers
Developing open-source software that allows for the remote calibration of testing devices
Offering educational course content to increase the access and use of battery testers.
Target customer groups include start-ups, battery labs, universities, and eventually large OEMs and industrial customers.
