Comparison to lead acid battery
Feature of SCiB™ SIP series

SIP series
  • Safety
    Hydrogen gasfree,and charge anywhere.
  • Quick charging
    Charging completes
    within 1 hour.
    (20 minutes minimum charging.)
  • Long life
    10 years long life reduces the total cost.
  • Compact & light
    Battery weights reduced to 1/4 of lead acid battery for same operation time.

  • The place for charging battery is limited due to safety reasons.
  • It takes 8 to 10 hours to charge a battery.
  • Battery needs to be replaced every one to three years.
  • Replacement of large and heavy battery is quite taxing.

Toshiba's Industrial lithium-ion Battery SCiB™Higher Availability by Rapid Charging!

  • SCiB™ battery can be charged safely without generating hydrogen gas.
    Free from hazardous hydrogen gas You can charge SCiB™ anywhere
    Hydrogen gas is generated when a lead storage battery is overcharged, potentially causing ignition. SCiB™ batteries do not emit a hazardous hydrogen gas and can be easily charged at worksites.
  • SCiB™ battery is safe with no risk of lithium metal deposition.
    There is no risk of lithium deposition. SCiB™ can be used safely for a long time!
    In case of conventional lithium-ion batteries, there is a risk of lithium metal deposition, which could break separator and cause internal short circuit when it is used for long period of time, under very cold temperature, or with high charging current. There is no risk of lithium metal deposition in case of SCiB™.
  • Penetration test of SCiB™ battery
    Resistance of an internally-short-circuited area increases and reduces the short-circuit current.
    Even in case of internal short circuit, there is lower risk of smoke or ignition on SCiB™ because it reduces short circuit current due to increase of resistance around internal short circuit area.
  • Safety standards certificate of SCiB™ SIP series battery.
    Compliance with safety standards
    SCiB™ 23Ah cells and SIP series comply with various safety standards.

Toshiba's Industrial lithium-ion Battery SCiB™Higher Availability by Rapid Charging!

  • The SIP battery is chargeable in 1 hour, which is one-eighth of a lead-acid battery.
    Rapid charging in only one hour!
    It took 8 hours to charge a lead-acid battery, but SCiB™ can drastically reduce the charging time. It can be charged even within 20 minutes if corresponding charger is available.
  • Example of SIP battery use in automated guide vehicles (AGVs)
    Improve operational efficiency by reduction of charging time!
    Rapid charging drastically reduces downtime caused by battery charging. Operations with a minimum number of AGVs enhance operational efficiency of AGVs.

Toshiba's Industrial lithium-ion Battery SCiB™Long life of 10 years reduces the total cost!

  • SCiB™ battery is reusable.
    SCiB™ can be used for more than 20,000 cycles
    Actual measurement data have proven that SCiB™ cells keep more than 70% of capacity after 20,000 times of SOC*100% charge-discharge cycles. There will be almost no capacity degradation expected after 20,000 times of SOC50%-90% charge-discharge cycles.
    *SOC・・・・State of Charge
  • SCiB™ SIP series battery can be used for 10 years.
    SIP series can be used for 10 years, more than 3 times longer than lead-acid batteries!
    SIP series does not require replacement for long time and reduces total cost of ownership!
    It is also maintenance free!
  • SCiB™ SIP series battery helps reduce running cost.
    Total cost is lower because of long life!
    Although lead-acid battery is cheaper if only considering the initial cost, you can enjoy lower total cost of ownership by SIP series in the long run.
  • SCiB™ SIP series battery has long life and low environmental impact.
    SCiB™ is environment-friendly thanks to longer life and less waste.
    The longer life cycle reduces the environmental impact.

Toshiba's Industrial lithium-ion Battery SCiB™The smaller size reduces the load when replacing with the charged battery.

  • SCiB™ SIP series battery weighs about a quarter of a lead-acid battery.
    Only 8kg! 1/4 the weight of a lead-acid battery
    A lead-acid battery is large and heavy, and charging and replacing is hard work. However, the weight of SCiB™ is a quarter (8 kg) of a lead-acid battery! This new lightweight battery reduces the workload.

Customer's opinion

  • Automatic guided vehicle manufacturer A
    We proposed the quick charge with automatic charging systems to an automobile manufacturer and our proposal was adopted.
  • Leasing company B
    Cost-effectiveness of a long-life (15,000 cycles) and maintenance-free battery was a determining factor.
  • Electronic device manufacturer C
    We couldn't find a battery appropriate to the inductive charging, and we were at a loss. However, we finally encountered the SIP series.
  • Automobile manufacturer D
    It was a harsh task to remove and install heavy lead-acid battery. However, SIP series made our work much easier.
