Our New Battery Pack:

The Battery Pack is how the solar car stores all the energy the solar array receives from the sun. In our constant effort to improve our vehicles, we have started the process of building a new lighter, and more efficient battery pack. The new battery pack will save an estimated 300lbs compared to the current one. This change will increase the efficiency of our current, and future, vehicles dramatically to better compete and move towards our goal of a practical sustainable transportation method.  
 

What Is your donation is going towards?

Your donation will go towards the full development of the next battery pack. This includes: 

  • Battery Cells

  • Battery Enclosure

  • Battery Testing Equipment

  • Battery Cell Testing Equipment

  • High Voltage Cable

  • High Voltage Protective Gloves

  • Battery Cooling

  • Wires and Connectors

  • Contactors

Each aspect of this development is as important as the others. The pack is only as good as its least efficient cell, therefore, it is very important to safely test each one of the estimated 1300 cells so we can choose the most efficient ones.

This pack is designed with the future in mind. Not only will this pack work in our current vehicle with the current components, but it is being designed to be easily implemented into future vehicles without many modifications.
