Can electric car swapping really break the battery life limit?
With the innovation of electric vehicle technology, everyone's requirements for battery life are becoming more and more stringent. The battery is different from gasoline. It takes more time to charge, and the use scene and time are restricted. So industrial design companies came up with battery swaps, so can't swapping power solve the battery life problem of electric vehicles?
For large-scale electric vehicles, battery replacement is a highly technical work, and the laying of base stations, battery management and maintenance and a lot of manpower investment. In the short term, it is difficult to replace the current gas station without a large amount of capital support. However, for two-wheeled electric vehicles, this is not the case!
The battery of an electric two-wheeler is much smaller and lighter than that of a car. The replacement station occupies a small area. It can be realized by only a cabinet and does not require a lot of manpower input. The cost of a replacement box is not high, probably. Just tens of thousands of dollars. It can be placed in most electric vehicle specialty stores and repair shops.
It only takes 1 minute to replace the battery. Take out the battery, replace it with a new battery, and reinstall it to use. At present, the domestic first- and second-tier cities have begun to roll out. In Taiwan, our country, the Gogoro electric scooter that does not need to be charged has been spread all over the streets of Taiwan. This method greatly saves our charging time, and as long as there are enough outlets, we no longer have to be restricted by the battery mileage.
The electric vehicles currently used by industrial design companies are nothing more than two batteries, one is lead-acid and the other is lithium. The technology of lead-acid batteries is very mature and the safety is very high. However, the charging speed is slow, bulky and heavy, which may be a bit overwhelming for the battery swap facility. The electric vehicle lithium battery is not as complicated as the automobile lithium battery, and its safety can be well controlled by the current technology, and it is small in size and light in weight. It is still very convenient to replace.
The most commonly used lithium battery is 48V20AH lithium battery, which can run more than 100 kilometers when installed on the new national standard electric bicycle. The motor power is 600W, and the portable electric motorcycle can run at least 50 kilometers at a speed of 40km/h. Running 40 kilometers an hour, 12 hours a day, changing the electricity 10 times, you can run 500 kilometers (1 thousand miles). For the takeaway brother, this method greatly improves the efficiency of their commuting and helps them achieve the farthest delivery of orders.
The only shortcoming now is that lithium battery electric vehicles are not popular enough, and all electric vehicles are not uniform battery standards and installation methods. Although only some cities have small-scale power exchanges at this stage, the prospects are faintly visible!
