Revolutionizing the eCall Market with Breakthrough Battery Technology


eCall, also known as emergency call, is a state-of-the-art emergency response system implemented in vehicles throughout the European Union. The system is designed to rapidly respond to road traffic incidents, reducing emergency response times by up to 50% in rural areas and 40% in urban areas. This cutting-edge technology is estimated to prevent 2,500 road deaths and save the European Union over 26 billion euros annually. The eCall system is also available for connected vehicles globally.

Reliable eCall Batteries to Secure Your Lives

A reliable eCall battery must be ready to power the eCall system at all times, regardless of the circumstances. To meet this requirement, the battery must be able to operate within a wide temperature range of -30°C to 85°C, with a guaranteed service life of several up to 5 years. Designing and manufacturing a battery that can meet these requirements presents a significant challenge.

A Breakthrough in eCall Battery Technology


GP Energy Tech has made a significant investment in research and development to create the T5 eCall cell, utilizing their extensive expertise in NiMH battery technology. This cutting-edge product has been in development since 2017, with several millions of dollars invested in both research and development, and new equipment capital investment to bring it to the mass-production stage. Additionally, GP Energy Tech has partnered with the Georgia Institution of Technology in the United States and the Institute of Energy in Norway to continue making advancements in battery performance and stability. The company's dedicated team remains committed to pushing the boundaries of battery technology and achieving breakthroughs in this critical field.

At discharge temperature as low as -30°C, GP50AAAHT5 outperforms other models with a previous lowest working temperature limit of -20°C. This advantage in low temperature discharge makes it a leading choice for the eCall market, especially in the automotive industry. Additionally, the T5 cell offers an extended battery service life of up to 5 years, even in harsh usage environments, providing a lower maintenance cost for the eCall system.

The exceptional performance of the T5 cell is a result of a combination of innovative material design, specialized manufacturing processes, and stringent quality assurance protocols. With the introduction of T5 cells into GP Batteries' existing eCall battery range, we are poised for success in various customized projects.
