REDMOND, WA -- BrightVolt, Inc. has been awarded a new patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for "Improved battery packaging and constructions for batteries, particularly thin, flat-profile packaged batteries." This patent, now granted for BrightVolt in the United States, and already granted in key global markets, further establishes BrightVolt as the leading company in battery technology and design.
The proprietary technology applicable in rapid development and production provides for better battery packaging constructions and easier fabrication. Collector tabs coated by electrically conductive adhesive tape provide better packaging and materials creating support for tabs and regular battery perimeter thus eliminating the need for soldering.
The patent, numbered US 9,224,516 B2, describes "battery packaging constructions which eliminate the need for soldering" through the use of collector tabs coated by electrically conductive adhesive tape. The result: better fabrication and ultimately a much more secure connection, especially for use in RFID tags, smart cards and medical devices, to name just a few possible applications in the Internet of Things (IoT) space.
BrightVolt anticipates that this patent, in addition to the 75 others in its portfolio (with still more in the pipeline), will further solidify the Company's advanced proprietary position in ultra-thin battery manufacture and construction.
