Traction battery SUPER < LIFTTOP > ECO

Hitachi’s traction battery is changing to LIFTTOP

Image of Traction battery SUPER < LIFTTOP > ECO

As of 1st Oct 2020, Hitachi’s traction battery name changes to "LIFTTOP"
We will continue to provide highly reliable and long-life batteries.

History of “LIFTTOP”

With more than 100 years of history, we aim to be a leading global battery supplier.

Image of Traction battery SUPER < LIFTTOP > ECO

1916 Shin Kobe Electric Machinery was established and began manufacturing of lead acid battery. KOBE
1979 Began manufacturing and sales of traction battery.
1987 Began manufacturing and sales of “LIFTTOP” series.
2010 Began manufacturing and sales of “SUPER<LIFTTOP> ECO” series.
2016 Shin kobe Electric Machinery was merged with Hitachi Chemical Co., Ltd. Hitachi
2020 On Oct. 1st, Hitachi Chemical changes its company name to “Showa Denko Materials”. LIFTTOP

* The origin of new brand “LIFTTOP” is series name of our traction battery.

Technologies

Positive Plate

Negative Plate

Image of Separator

[Separator]
We have adopted sealed-up structure to reduce the risk of internal short circuit for the negative plate. This structure is designed in a unique way. Each of our negative plates is enveloped by polyethylene separator, which is sealed on all sides by mechanical seal and ultrasonic seal on the top side.

Image of Negative Active Material

[Negative Active Material]
The reacting area has increased by about 20% in comparison with our conventional types. Thanks to the new negative electrode additives developed by our company, the discharge capacity at low temperature has increased about 10% compared with our previous model.
