Joint venture to extend lithium-ion life with ultracap

Fri, 03/14/2014 - 11:22 -- Ruth Williams
This novel approach opens a new path to large markets starting from computing, renewable energy and portable consumer electronic and wireless sensors.

The Paper Battery Company from New York has begun a partnership with TWS Industrial, a manufacturer of lithium-based battery products, to incorporate an ultracapacitor into lithium-ion batteries to boost performance.

Called the PowerPatch, the ultracapacitor is wrapped around the lithium-ion battery to make hybrid storage devices ranging from 2V to 7.8V that the company claim can offer better peak power performance, longer run time and cycle life.

Celadon, Maxwell Technologies partner to deploy ultracaps in remote controls for set top boxes

Wed, 09/25/2013 - 11:22 -- Editor

Maxwell Technologies is working with remote control manufacturer Celadon to provide its 10-farad (F) HC series ultracapacitors.

The ultracapacitors will be used with the CLS-140 Cellular Media Center from set top box developer Cobalt Labs. These set top boxes are used by telecom companies including Orange.

Each remote control has a USB port that is plugged into the set top box to charge the ultracapacitors through AC wall power. Maxwell claims the ultracaps can deliver a quick 70 to 80% charge to the remote control within four to five minutes.

Michael Griswold, vice president of sales and business development at Celadon, said, "Ultracapacitors, as an alternative to traditional alkaline batteries, are a compelling solution for remote controls, as well as many different types of handheld devices.”

Olympic cable car ultracapacitors

Fri, 07/20/2012 - 18:02 -- Ruth Williams

The London 2012 cable car carrying passengers over the Thames cost US$70 million, making it the most expensive built.
The cabins, built by Swiss CWA, will use Maxwell Technologies’ ultracapacitors for the power supply and energy management on board. The cars only charge at the end of the line, so this must be done in seconds.  Two 48V ultracapacitor-modules units mounted on top of each car power the five-minute journey.
