Smart Battery Sports Improved Design

LITTLE FALLS, N.J. /BUSINESS WIRE/ -- mPhase Technologies reports on an improved design in the nanostructure of its "smart" battery under development. Speaking at the Advancements in Battery Technology & Power Management Conference in Chicago, Alex Langa, the company's director of business development, reports that a "honeycomb" membrane design is helping to reduce the processing steps required to manufacture the battery. The honeycomb membrane separates the electrolyte from the electrodes until power is needed. This property enhances a key feature of the device to immediately begin the electrochemical process of producing power on demand.

The device relies on the principles of microfluidics and electro-wetting to keep the battery in an inactive state for a long shelf life while retaining the properties of reaching full voltage potential when called upon to produce current.
