Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Hi Enthusiasts, to help address the comments before this one, we just made a Super Capacitor fast charge test. https://youtu.be/iEF03oyGWrI We’ve now have several visits from engineers to view and test the technology in person due to the invite we’ve made. The doors are open to anyone to come to tes...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Hi Everyone, here is a fast change video I made this morning.
https://youtu.be/RBsMo89WrWg
In order to charge faster than 4 minutes I think I need a cell with heavier terminals.

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Hi Adverse effects, I was referring to modules not cells. By that I mean a unit in our case made of 1200 cells in series and parallel.
We can parallel the modules almost indefinitely.

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

There are many reasons the super capacitors we use should be considered as electro batteries and not electrochemical batteries as some have speculated. 1. According to others in this thread LTO chemical batteries have the same flammable electrolyte as other lithium batteries. Yet the blow torch test...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Hi All. It’s good to see all the conjecture and concern. It’s a great way to discuss technology. Thanks for the compliements and concerns. I found a good article that may help broaden the debate somewhat. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/advs.201600539 Our offer remains open for expe...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Hi all, Have been running tests on and off through the day to answer the great questions raised. I should be able to post a video shortly. And yes I didn’t describe the way the electrolyte acts in the super caps properly. I made a mistake. I should have explained that the electrolyte is absorbed int...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Hi Weber (Dave?) thanks for asking for these tests. I’m just in the middle of making some test reports this week. Actually I thought the fire test would be a good one so I did this last night already to put the idea to rest that we use LTO chemical battery cells instead of super capacitors. This als...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Hi all. It’s interesting to hear all the view points. I appreciate that many people consider themselves experts, I respect that. In answer to the theory that due to the similar heat shrink found on the internet which was used on an LTO cell which looks like our super cap ... no it’s not an LTO cell....

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

No. The super capacitors in the 3.55kWh module have two terminals per capacitor. The one in the patent doesn’t have the physical terminals shown.

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Just to clarify a few things. The super capacitor in the picture is one of the range of super capacitors, not the one in the 3.55kWh unit. Secondly the calculations are correct except for the micro farad typo. The missing piece of the calculations is understanding of the technique used to extract al...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

We have an engineer appointed to create a series of custom super capacitor batteries for various applications. If there are any EV enthusiasts who can see a good market for a particular package, let me know. We can build packs from 12V to 1000V.

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Yes the patent covers this. Patents are normally written as broadly as possible to prevent copying methods by other parties. This is why the words “in some embodiments” and “can” are used. There are no lithium ion electrochemical cells in the super capacitor modules which are being used. Good to see...

Hi Richo, let me know when you want to see the unit opened up on a work bench and see the cycle testing in person, touch and feel the capacitors in your hands. Run a column meter on them. Watch the charge and discharge tests, hold the current clamp in you own hand and make an informed decision about...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Start by reading the patent that was published yesterday. Just for clarification there is no in series dc to dc conversion and no electrochemical cells despite Richo’s determined effort. We fly these units on planes regularly at 40 x the allowable Wh limit of lithium ion electrochemical batteries. T...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

There is no dc to dc converter in series with the cell arrays. The super capacitor banks are in parallel and series configuration. Still waiting for someone to work out how it’s done. There are no electrochemical batteries, no dc to dc converter, the 75kg unit delivers 3.55kWh of usable energy from ...

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

Was an interesting day of testing. This was just one test to address the chemical battery question raised. As a chemical battery would not behave this way. The super cap module internal resistance of 6mOhms explains the jump to match the power supply voltage IMO. So what are the questions that this ...
