Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB:XDSL.OB - News) showcased critical elements of
the Smart NanoBattery last Thursday at the NanoBusiness Alliance Public Policy
Tour Product Showcase in Washington, D.C. in the Russell Senate Office Building.
At the Product Showcase, mPhase displayed the concept packaging for the multiple
cell battery as well as the silicon based membrane that is the most critical
element of the Smart NanoBattery. mPhase will be releasing illustrations of
its prototype Smart NanoBattery packaging along with images of its membrane
technology next week.
The multiple cell silicon membrane is essentially what gives the Smart NanoBattery
its extended shelf life, one of the product's primary competitive advantages
over other batteries. The concept design on display contained 12 individual
cells on one silicon chip. The membrane's design keeps the electrolyte chemicals
separated from the electrodes in each individual cell until the battery is activated
for first use. In traditional batteries, the chemicals are combined as soon
as the battery is manufactured.
Traditional batteries commonly encounter a condition known as leakage current
or self discharge while in storage. By the time a consumer actually uses the
battery for the first time, it may no longer have the full power capability
that it was meant to have. The Smart NanoBattery was designed as a solution
to this problem in critical products, or those used in emergency applications
such as defense and healthcare as well as consumer applications. The Smart NanoBattery
is designed to provide effective primary and/or reserve backup power, to keep
the application devices running.
Said mPhase CEO Ron Durando, ``We have made great strides in developing the
Smart NanoBattery and I think that these significant developments were recognized
by key people in the nanotechnology community at the NanoBusiness Alliance Product
