Technology is supposed to make us smarter, safer and stronger - yet it also can be dangerous, as we have seen recently with the burning batteries issue. The most heightened public awareness of this risk of advanced battery technology came with reports of some batteries on the new Samsung 7 spontaneously bursting into flames, prompting [...]
In this PSDcast Gene Armstrong of supercapacitor developer Paper Battery talks to Alix Paultre of Power Systems Design about energy management in small wireless Internet of Things (IoT) devices. As devices shrink, the amount pf power they can store also goes down and energy budgets and managment become critical to the device's operational life, especially [...]
Shreefal Mehta, president and CEO of PBC Tech offers his predictions for 2016.
Paper Battery Co. is preparing to put its ultrathin lithium batteries on the market as it heads toward full-scale production. The Troy, New York, startup, which spun off of research at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has been working since 2008 to get its batteries to full-scale production.
Gene Armstrong, Director of Applications at PBC Tech, writes about new technologies:"Because a supercap’s ability to hold a charge per unit weight has been small, it’s been a niche player until now. But new materials are adding energy density to a supercap’s technical advantages..." and expanding application markets: "Smaller supercaps can supply energy to embedded [...]
