K2 Energy Solutions, Inc. announces exhibition at West 2018, the premier Conference and Exhibition bringing Military, Industry, and Government Leaders together.
Online PR News – 15-December-2017 – Henderson, NV December 14, 2017 – K2 Energy Solutions, Inc. (“K2”) announces that it will be exhibiting at West 2018, the premier Sea Service Conference and Exhibition bringing Military, Industry, and Government Leaders together on February 6th- 8th in San Diego.
K2 will connect with key Maritime US Military Organizations to emphasize the safety of K2’s US designed and developed battery cells, packs, modules, systems and chemistries, while showcasing its latest marine battery products.
The West 2018 Conference provides an opportunity for industry leaders to hear about the current set of challenges facing the US Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard, and be a part of the dialogue on the opportunities and solutions to address these concerns.
As an ITAR certified company, K2 has worked with branches of the US Military to meet their energy storage needs, from the Navy’s high voltage and capacity Railgun Battery System, to light-weight, mobile, and hot-swappable energy storage solutions for today’s demanding military customers.
K2’s lightweight, advanced and safe Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are the clear choice for maritime applications, states Sean Campbell, K2’s Vice President of Sales. “K2’s proprietary Lithium Iron Phosphate chemistry does not support the conditions for thermal run-away, the dramatic self-propagating decomposition of the cathode material leading to catastrophic failure” according to Campbell. Lithium Iron Phosphate has the lowest heat release compared to oxide based lithium ion batteries, and does not create additional Oxygen to feed into the propagation cycle like many batteries.
“K2 has consistently offered safe batteries for marine sea based operations for years,” states Campbell.
K2's Marine battery series is a prime example of a safe Lithium Iron Phosphate system, as these batteries feature waterproof certification at IP67 levels. These batteries are approximately one-third the weight of a conventional marine battery, and are safer, cleaner, and more reliable than conventional lead acid solutions.
West 2018 provides K2 Energy an excellent opportunity to help the US Military with safe, dependable sources of clean energy by emphasizing K2’s unique chemistry inside the marine battery.
About K2: K2 Energy was founded and is headquartered in the growing technology hub of Henderson, Nevada, and is a leading developer and producer of Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries, which are used in many advanced medical and military applications and for fixed and portable energy storage solutions. K2’s field-proven products offer leading energy density, superior power, and are made of more environmentally benign, lightweight materials, providing increased cycle life and enhanced safety.
