Enabling second-life batteries

Lifetime is a low-cost, open-source solution for cell health testing for second-life battery applications.

Currently, used lithium-ion batteries are either sent to landfill or recycling centres. Neither of these are sustainable options.

  • In landfills, waste accumulation, fire hazard, and toxic gas release are acute dangers.
  • In recycling centres, chemical processes break down the batteries to recover metals, such as lithium.
Read why used batteries are a major problem

A single damaged cell can compromise the whole battery’s performance

The problem is that robust, cost-effective technology for testing the state-of-health of cells is presently not easily available.

Lifetime is a testing kit that measures the state-of-health of battery cells

Our solution is low-cost and open-source. Get the components you need or use our documentation to create your own testing kit.
