A battery solution supplied by Celltech typically comes to the end of its first life when its charge capacity is reduced by some 20%. Even though it is no longer suitable for its original purpose, it could be used in second-life functions, like stationary power applications. Second-life functions are part of the design process of Celltech products and are seen as part of complete product lifetime always when possible.
After second life, the battery solution is recycled. We ensure that the battery is easy to disassemble and that the materials used are recyclable.
