Toshiba Corporation has launched a 20Ah-HP rechargeable lithium-ion battery cell, which it says delivers both high energy and high power at the same time, as demanded by the market. Toshiba notes that until now this has required a trade-off for rechargeable lithium-ion batteries.

In an EV, for example, a high-energy battery enables the vehicle to drive further on a single charge –but it lowers power input and output and extends charge times. The company says it drew on its know-how in current high-energy and high-power products to develop a cell that successfully combines the advantages of both.
