Overview:Based on new, highly active nanoscale material initially developed at MIT, A123Systems' low impedance Nanophosphate electrode technology provides a competitive advantage over alternative high power technologies. A123's cell and electrode designs lower cost/watt and cost/watt-hour. They have higher voltage than other long-life systems, enabling lower pack cost. Their long life leads to reduced lifecycle and system costs resulting in greater overall price-performance . Competitors include Valence , Saft and Lion Cells .
