Lithium Technology Corporation to Launch Advanced New Product Line



    
    Lithium Technology Corporation offers the Largest Lithium Iron Phosphate
    Cells in World
    

    PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., Feb. 21 /CNW/ -- Lithium Technology Corporation
("LTC") (Pink Sheets:   LTHU) announced today that it launched its new product
line of high energy density lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) cells, the
largest cells of their kind in the world.  This product line is aimed at
answering the need of the electrical vehicle (EV) and the plug in hybrid
vehicle (PHEV) markets.
    The Company's new product line offers cells ranging from 8 Ah to 40 Ah,
which joins the existing high power line, which offers cells ranging from 6 Ah
to 35 Ah.  The company's complete portfolio of products includes various cell
chemistries and large batteries.
    "In recent years LTC has been developing and offering battery technology
that is unmatched by any other battery power solution on the market,"
commented Dr. Klaus Brandt, chief executive officer of LTC. "Today we are
launching a product line that will complete our offering to the various
markets we are targeting.  We continue to prove our technical superiority and
with the new iron phosphate products we raised the bar again."
    LTC, a global provider of large lithium-ion rechargeable power solutions,
has focused solely on the development and production of large format lithium-
ion batteries.  LTC has been working closely with the German chemical company
Sud-Chemie and its Canadian daughter company Phostech, the sole patent owners
of the iron-phosphate technology, to further improve cell materials.  This
chemistry, coupled with the company's innovative end-to-end manufacturing
processes and proprietary design, packaging and assembly techniques, allows
LTC to provide high performance cells unmatched by any other product.
    LTC's large format technology allows for the development of safer battery
systems with a significantly lower number of cells.  The weight of the battery
is decreased while performance and safety monitoring capabilities are
increased.  The battery management system (BMS) precisely monitors fewer
cells, keeping them in balance for best performance and preventing damage to
the battery due to over voltage, under voltage, over temperature and short
circuit.
    "We developed this product to power the new breed of EV's and for the
fleet EV market that has been promoted recently all over the world," concluded
Dr. Brandt.
