StoreDot Unveils I-BEAM XFCTM, its Extreme Fast-Charging Cell-to Pack Concept

StoreDot has unveiled a breakthrough concept for taking extreme fast charging (XFC) capability from the cell to the vehicle level with its new I-BEAM XFCTM concept, an innovative cell-to-pack (CTP) design that will accelerate the integration of XFC into EVs.

At the core of I-BEAM XFCTM sits StoreDot's proprietary 100in5 cell technology, which enables charging 100 miles, or 160km of range in just 5 minutes. StoreDot’s 100in5 electrodes are assembled into its new I-BEAM XFCTM cells, which are designed to be incorporated directly into the battery pack.

While standard cell-to-pack architectures aim to improve range and energy density, StoreDot is also focusing on extreme fast charging with its I-BEAM XFCTM concept. It leapfrogs the complexity and cost challenges of embedding XFC capability at the vehicle level, allowing EVs to be charged even more rapidly.

Unlike traditional cooling systems, the I-BEAM XFCTM patented Structural Cooling concept is embedded into the structure of each cell, providing enhanced thermal management. This prevents localized hot spots and maintains uniform temperatures across the battery pack, enabling it to accept the ultra-high currents required for fast charging, with minimal system overhead.

While still a concept, StoreDot has already secured several patents around I-BEAM XFC'sTM unique architecture. The company views this groundbreaking design as the key to unlocking the full potential of XFC technology on a mass scale.
