ABC 10 News – San Diego company improving electric car batteries

San Diego-based company South 8 Technologies is developing batteries to make electric cars safer and better in the cold. The company says it’s solving a key problem with these batteries.

“The current materials in batteries today is a liquid-based component that freezes around freezing point, think of it like water,” said South 8 Cofounder Jungwoo Lee. “That’s why when winter time hits, and snow hits the ground, we’re seeing the ranges dropping quite significantly in these vehicles.”
