Leading microfludics and nanotechnology development company mPhase
Technologies, Inc., today announced that it has released a video demonstrating
how its manually activated reserve lithium battery with breakable separator
is used to power a LED Maglite flashlight. The piece is narrated and intended
for anyone interested in viewing the battery's function.
The video shows that mPhase's manually activated reserve lithium battery prototype
with compact planar geometry (3" long x 2" wide x 0.3' thick) can
provide the voltage and capacity to immediately power a high intensity LED that
will run at full brightness for over two hours -- enough backup power for an
emergency situation. The breakable separator inside the battery keeps the liquid
electrolyte away from the solid electrodes until the battery is activated by
simply pressing the center of the pack. The battery has potentially infinite
shelf life so it is always ready to provide Power On Command™ when needed.
mPhase CEO Ronald A. Durando said, "Our ability to rapidly prototype a
manually activated reserve lithium battery with energy density suitable for
a practical application such as an emergency flashlight is an important step
in our product commercialization efforts. We look forward to improving this
battery's design as we continue to develop our more sophisticated Smart NanoBattery
with the electrowetable membrane."
