Focusing on electrochemistry, CATL claims to have achieved fast charging, high energy density and high level of safety with its new product. The Tesla supplier has also claimed that Shenxing is the world’s first 4C superfast charging LFP battery and pushes beyond the boundaries of the performance of LFP chemistry, leading innovation in the battery industry.

Shenxing leveraged the electronic network cathode technology and fully nano-crystallised LFP cathode material to create a super electronic network, to help facilitate the extraction of lithium ions and the rapid responses to charging signals.


CATL have also developed a new superconducting electrolyte formula, which effectively reduces the viscosity of the electrolyte, resulting in improved conductivity. In addition, CATL added improvements to the ultra-thin SEI film to reduce resistance of lithium-ion movement.


The new product can also reportedly charge to 80% SOC in 10 minutes. The company also made us of cell temperature control technology on system platforms to ensure that cells heat up to the optimal operating temperature range rapidly, allowing a 0-80% charge in 30 minutes in temperature as low as -10°C, and uncompromised 0-100 kph acceleration performance at low temperatures.

CATL have launched a new 4C super fast charging lithium-ion battery called Shenxing. The battery is claimed to be capable of delivering 400 km of driving range with a 10-minute charge as well as a range of over 700 km on a single full charge.

The Chinese battery manufacturer have said that the product is expected to considerably alleviate fast charging anxiety for electric vehicle (EV) users, and to potentially open up an era of EV super fast charging.
