    6. RedFlow Achieves Zinc Bromide Battery Life Milestone

      RedFlow Achieves Zinc Bromide Battery Life Milestone

      RedFlow has achieved an important milestone with over 10,000 kilowatt hours processed through a single zinc-bromide flow battery during long-term testing. Adding to the interest, this test battery continues to perform with no signs of degradation and accordingly it is not yet possible to predict total capacity nor battery life of this generation ZBM. These results have been achieved from a reference ZBM, now being manufactured by Flextronics, using accelerated bench testing and charging and discharging daily at 100% over several months.
