EMO Energy claims that 20 minutes of charging helps its 2kWh batteries provide up to 50km of charge to E2Ws and E3Ws. It is utilising a digital 4.0 setup, including robots and a connected assembly line, for manufacturing batteries
Mrinal Sinha, Co-Founder at EMO Energy, in a conversation with Electronics For You, shared that the 2kW batteries his startup has developed can be charged from 20% to 80% within 20 minutes using a standard home socket.
“The only limitation is the charger you are using. It has to be a 3.3kW charger. Although we can supply these chargers to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), we do not restrict them from sourcing them from a third party,” he says.
The startup says it is utilising a digital Industry 4.0 setup, which includes robots and an interconnected assembly line to ensure the production of safe batteries. Sinha adds that professionals at EMO Energy have a cumulative experience of 45 years in the battery industry and have previously worked with companies such as Tesla, Rivian, Ola, Sun, Ather, and Log9.
Its collaborations extend to inverter and energy storage companies to provide them with batteries for a second life. Sinha claims that EMO Energy’s batteries can be used for almost 10 years.
At the end of the cycle, the disassembled cells will be supplied to various existing extractors for conversion into a black mass. “The materials extracted from this process will then be provided to the cell companies we work with, enabling them to build cells for our battery packs,” Mrinal concludes.
