Improvements to the separator allow for the increased reliability of the energy storage device when the battery is overloaded.
If the temperature inside the battery rises to above 135-160 °C (which corresponds to the melting point of conventional separators), then as a result of internal reactions in the battery even more heat starts to be discharged, leading to overheating, smoke, fire or even explosion. For this reason, manufacturers have had to recall significant consignments of their batteries.
The development of safe batteries has allowed for battery separator thickness to be minimized to 30 microns. In a parallel or series connection of the electrodes in the energy storage device this greatly increases the weight and volume of the finished storage device.
Our technology makes the energy storage device more thermally stable, but at the same time the thickness of the separating layer is no more than 0.2 microns (150 times thinner than those on the market!)
This significantly extends the range of applications of energy storage devices.
Moreover, our separator allows for the use of higher voltage, which is impossible in traditional energy storage devices.
This means that the energy density of the energy storage device will increase.
The diagram shows the cost distribution of battery manufacturing. The cost of the battery is reduced by automating the process of materials generation.
New magnetron technology for the manufacturer will:
• Improve the reliability and repeatability of the process of materials generation.
• Reduce direct labor costs.
• Reduce the cost of the cathode and anode materials.
• Increase the energy potential of the active electrodes.
It will increase capacity while keeping the energy storage device at the same cost, which in turn will increase sales for the manufacturer.
The final result of our technology is an HSB with all the advantages of supercapacitors and batteries, but without their drawbacks
In fact, our technology is a completely new type of energy storage device which sees the realization of a dream long held by millions of consumers: to quickly charge their technological devices with even greater energy (several times) than is possible at the moment using any existing storage devices in the world
The potential market for this technology is truly unlimited: from cell phones to electric cars.
