Omega Seiki and Log 9 Materials Partner To Introduce Rapid Charging Tech for EVs


Developed by Log 9 Materials, these batteries will have 15,000 charge cycles along with a 15-year warranty

Omega Seiki Pvt Ltd has entered a strategic partnership with nanomaterial battery tech start-up Log 9 Materials to introduce rapid charging batteries technology in its Rage+ electric 3W platform, the company said in a statement.

This is the first time in India that fast charging technology is being introduced in commercial three-wheelers, the company added. 

The technology will be first introduced in Range+ in two variants, a 5.8 kWh, 120 Ah unit and a 6.5 kWh, 140 Ah battery which will take 30 minutes and 35 minutes respectively to charge fully. Both variants can operate in temperatures between -40°C and +65°C, making them suitable for Indian conditions. Developed by Log 9 Materials, these batteries will have 15,000 charge cycles along with a 15-year warranty.

Omega Seiki said that the Rage+ with Rapid Charging batteries will have a range of around 65 to 100 km when fully charged.

Speaking about the partnership, Omega Seiki Mobility’s Chairman Uday Narang, said, “Following PM Modi’s dream of Atmanirbhar Bharat, Omega Seiki Mobility is working on all the aspects of developing state-of-the-art, Make-in-India electric vehicle technology. The Rapid charging batteries will not only provide a solution to range anxiety as they can be quickly charged in under 30 minutes but will also be value for money to our customers due to their long life and reliability.”

Dr Deb Mukherji, Managing Director, Omega Seiki Mobility, said, “We are excited to enter into a long-term supply agreement with Log 9 Materials. With sustainability at the heart of our strategy and an increasingly important requirement for our customers and consumers, we are delighted to be working with our partners to deliver best technology via our products to the market.”

Dr Akshay Singhal, Founder & CEO, Log 9 Materials said “Our RapidX battery technology addresses the core challenges of high downtime due to charging, low reliability due to dropping power in the vehicle during discharge and rapidly degrading range of the vehicle as the battery gets old. This will drive adoption of EVs in the last mile sector where there is a huge pent up demand”

Omega Seiki Mobility and Log 9 Material are specifically targeting B2B last-mile delivery segment for the deployment of its rapid charging batteries in the Rage+ RapidEV variant of the original Rage+ platform.
