Inc. (OTCBB:XDSL), is focused on developing and commercializing a new battery
technology based on a well-patented phenomenon known as electrowetting, today
released a video demonstrating that a liquid electrolyte can be controlled atop
a man made surface. This key process allows the activation of the Smart NanoBattery
to be controlled. The video demonstration shows a liquid electrolyte droplet
as it passes through a porous silicon membrane so that the electrolyte can come
in contact with the battery's electrodes. This process of the liquid electrolyte
coming in contact with the electrodes is what provides power to the battery.

In its inactive state, the electrolyte rests on mPhase's proprietary porous
silicon membrane separator. The membrane's function is to keep the liquid electrolyte
separate from the battery's positive and negative electrodes. Although the membrane
is porous, the surface energy properties of the structure's materials do not
allow the liquid electrolyte to pass through and come into contact with the
electrodes, preventing the battery from activating prematurely.
The liquid electrolyte begins to pass through the membrane once it is told
to do so. This is one example of the battery's "Smart" capabilities.
The electrolyte completely passes through the membrane almost immediately, providing
Power on Command(tm). The video concludes with the electrolyte having completely
passed through the membrane where it comes in complete contact with the electrode.
At this point, the battery is active and creates a voltage that can power a
"This video shows the control of a liquid on a surface. In this case the
liquid represents the electrolyte which is kept separated by the membrane surface
until power is needed," said mPhase CEO Ron Durando. "The Smart NanoBattery
provides immediate Power on Command(tm) once activated.
