Log9, SpareIt In Partnership To Launch Battery Replacement and Retrofitment Model

Log9 materials and Spareit have come together to tackle what they describe as the biggest concern in the EV ecosystem. The battery is always the heart of any electric vehicle; given that EV range, charging time, and other critical characteristics are all closely tied to the battery’s health. Due to factors experienced such as constant kilometre runs, high ambient temperature due to India’s tropical climate conditions, and fewer charge-discharge cycles, battery degradation for EVs in the last-mile logistics segment in India often peaks and leads to prolonged downtimes and a lot of dead inventory.

To solve the above-mentioned concerns in India’s EV ecosystem, and to address the need of retrofitting existing EVs with Log9’s RapidX batteries and thereby giving a second lease of life to such dead EV inventory, Bengaluru-headquartered advanced EV battery technology startup Log9 Materials has announced the launch of what it claims is a one-of-its-kind battery replacement and retrofitment model in partnership with SpareIt -a garage network platform.

As a part of this long-term collaboration, SpareIt will offer its pan-India extensive garage network for vehicle integration with Log9’s InstaCharging battery packs. This battery replacement and retrofitment service will be rolled out across various cities/towns wherever SpareIt support is available and will be made available, to both individual owners and fleet aggregator companies.

Thus, any EV 2W or 3W owner having a vehicle with issues due to the battery can reach out to SpareIt or Log9’s teams and get access to Log 9’s next-age battery replaced in their vehicles through SpareIt. On the other hand, since fleets have a larger EV deployment, Log9 and SpareIt simultaneously expects larger volumes from fleet aggregator companies to turn up for retrofitment, and will together continue to support electrification via retrofitment of fleets as well through their newly-formed partnership.

Speaking on the partnership, Kartik Hajela, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, Log9 Materials says, “At Log9, we are looking forward to our partnership with SpareIt. The Indian EV revolution is shaping up into a big movement, and SpareIt has come out with a unique value proposition to support EVs that might need retrofit solutions and maintenance to keep them running on the road. Our partnership with SpareIt will ensure that EV owners and EV fleet players have the opportunity to benefit from Log9’s reliable battery technology and SpareIt’s support system network.”

Roney Philip, Head – Strategic Partnerships, SpareIt adds, “We are proud and excited to partner with Log9 Materials. To ensure faster adoption in the EV industry, it is important for the ecosystem to work collaboratively. Log9’s customers can benefit substantially from this partnership, and this is a testament of how working together and leveraging strengths with each other can be beneficial.”

Log9 Materials has introduced RapidX battery packs based on InstaCharge technology, which are specifically designed for enhancing B2B last-mile logistics. These  batteries get fully charged within 15 minutes for e-2Ws and 35 minutes for e-3Ws, claims the firm. Log9 is also expanding its InstaCharge network to increase the availability of the much needed fast-charging infrastructure across India.
