Electric Bike Technologies LLC (makers of the E-BikeKit electric bike conversion kit) and AllCell Technologies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to jointly promote and sell lithium-ion batteries for use in electric bike conversions. A central objective of the partnership is to displace many of the low quality imported batteries whose high failure rates have plagued the industry.
In their place, the partners will be offering high-quality batteries designed and assembled in the U.S. backed by a two-year warranty and exceptional customer service. By combining AllCell's lightweight, compact, and long-lasting batteries with Electric Bike Technologies' marketing, retailing, and customer service expertise the two firms are creating a compelling value proposition for both consumers and bike dealers.
A few of AllCell's battery models are already available for purchase through the E-BikeKit website (www.e-bikekit.com), with an enhanced offering coming soon.
Electric Bike Technologies is a leading development, sales, and marketing company specializing in high performance electric bicycle products. Through the partnership, Electric Bike Technologies will offer AllCell batteries through a network of over 125 established E-BikeKit dealers in the U.S. as well as via www.e-bikebatteries.com, a new website devoted exclusively to selling electric bike batteries and accessories.
In addition to offering a robust selection of high-quality batteries at competitive prices, the partners will ensure that every battery is shipped legally and safely, adhering to all applicable laws and shipping regulations.
AllCell's patented thermal management technology employs a phase change material (PCM) composite to rapidly absorb and distribute the heat generated during battery discharge. Because AllCell's proprietary PCM composite operates passively, it functions even when the bike is not in use, protecting the battery from solar loading on hot summer days as well.
By preventing the lithium-ion cells from overheating, AllCell is able to build high energy density batteries with extended cycle life and maximum safety. Interested parties are invited to visit the AllCell booth (#40062) at the upcoming Interbike show from September 19-21 in Las Vegas.
"E-BikeKit's business has been growing rapidly, and we are excited to partner with an American lithium-ion battery supplier who matches our dedication to product quality, innovative design and customer satisfaction.
"AllCell's batteries with their unique thermal management technology will offer our customers and dealers the longest-lasting high energy density battery on the market. AllCell packs are reliable, safe and they are shipped in full compliance with current government regulations; they are the perfect match for any conversion kit application." - Jason Kraft, Electric Bike Technologies CEO
"Electric Bike Technologies is a perfect partner for AllCell. Their impressive roster of dealers and intuitive, easy-to-use e-commerce site will dramatically broaden the reach of our batteries. We look forward to working with their team to help develop the U.S. electric bike market with a high quality product offering and top-notch customer support staff." - Said Al-Hallaj, AllCell Technologies CEO

Waste silicon gets new life in lithium-ion batteries at Rice University
Houston TX (SPX) Sep 05, 2012
Researchers at Rice University and the Universite catholique de Louvain, Belgium, have developed a way to make flexible components for rechargeable lithium-ion (LI) batteries from discarded silicon. The Rice lab of materials scientist Pulickel Ajayan created forests of nanowires from high-value but hard-to-recycle silicon. Silicon absorbs 10 times more lithium than the carbon commonly used in LI ... read more
