Inc. (OTC.BB:XDSL - News) reported today that it has been granted a United
States patent for its concept for a battery that is safer for the environment.
mPhase's "greener" battery technology could potentially help to reduce
the harmful residual chemicals in a battery once it has reached the end of its
life and is discarded. This approach reduces the risk that potentially harmful
chemicals will leak through the battery container and pollute the ground or
air, after the battery has been disposed of.
The technique described in the patent is based on the idea of neutralizing
the harmful chemistry inside the battery by dispensing a neutralizing agent
or containment polymer that is located inside the battery fixture and dispensed
once the battery is depleted. This process is an important step forward in creating
safer, green batteries.
The use of this patented technique may be incorporated into future battery
designs by battery vendors, and could be implemented in future designs of the
mPhase Smart NanoBattery. The Smart NanoBattery is being developed as part of
the U.S. Army STTR Program to develop unique new battery technology for military
purposes. The reserve battery design uses electrowetting and microfluidic techniques
to selectively activate and control the power generated by the cells in the
"This patent is a major step in creating new approaches for designing
batteries that could be safer for the environment," said mPhase CEO Ron
Durando. "This concept is not just something that can be implemented in
our own products, but has applicability that could be incorporated by other
vendors in the battery industry."
mPhase Technologies, Inc. (OTC.BB:XDSL - News), through its wholly owned subsidiary
AlwaysReady, Inc., is focused on developing and commercializing a new battery
technology based on a well-patented phenomenon known as electrowetting, which
provides a unique way to store energy and manage power that will revolutionize
the battery industry. For more information, please visit our website at www.mPhaseTech.com.
