  • UCAP Power Acquires Maxwell Technologies Korea, Raises Special Purpose Venture Fund - BATTERY POWER NEWS | UCAP Power has completed the purchase of Maxwell Technologies Korea, the Korean-based ultracapacitor business, as well as closed on a special purpose venture round of funding led by Grantchester C Change. The company made both announcements last week. more..
  • Great Strides Built On Small Innovations  - BATTERY POWER INSIGHTS | In the eyes of the consumer—or the eyes of governments seeking ways to realize a cleaner, cooler and lower-carbon future—the remarkable strides made by battery developers and manufacturers in commercializing reliable and increasingly affordable battery and charging technology can seem routine. But they are not. Each enhancement is the result of intense effort.  more..
  • New Battery Separator Allows for Liquified Gas Electrolyte, Extremely Low Temperature Performance - BATTERY POWER ONLINE | Nanoengineers at the University of California, San Diego, have developed a separator that keeps the gas-based electrolytes from vaporizing. This new separator could help prevent the buildup of pressure inside the battery that leads to swelling and explosions, and also boosts battery performance at ultra-low temperatures. more..
  • Mikolajczak Takes VP Manufacturing Engineering Role at QuantumScape - BATTERY POWER NEWS | Celina Mikolajczak, formerly of Tesla, Uber, and Panasonic, is joining QuantumScape Corporation as Vice President of Manufacturing Engineering. In this role, Mikolajczak will lead the transition of the company’s tools and manufacturing processes from research and development to production. more..
  • Tracing Oxygen Loss from Electrodes: DOE, Stanford Team Image Oxygen Vacancies - BATTERY POWER ONLINE | When lithium ions flow in and out of a battery electrode during charging and discharging, a tiny bit of oxygen seeps out and the battery's voltage fades an equally tiny bit. But the losses mount over time and can eventually sap the battery's energy storage capacity by 10-15%. Now researchers have… more..
  • New Joint Industry Program Investigates Battery Degradation For the Grid  - BATTERY POWER ONLINE | Southwest Research Institute, San Antonio, Tex., has launched a new Joint Industry Program (JIP) to investigate energy storage systems for the grid. JIP efforts will include developing new test cycles for batteries employed in grid applications, estimating the life span of batteries and their potential for failure, and reducing likelihood of… more..
