Lithium-ion batteries have taken over the portable electronics industry in the last few years. For every unit of energy they are lighter, cheaper, and smaller than other kinds of batteries. But there is an important safety issue in their case. Li-ion batteries use organic solvents. In situations where the structure of the battery is compromised, the solvents could ignite and vent from the pressurized battery, and eventually the final result is an explosion.
This desirable safety is characteristic for Caleb's Li-polymer batteries and supercapacitors with LinPolyTM patented technology (USA and China). Caleb eliminates the traditional separator material, which is also a big contributor to the battery high cost. Instead of storing the lithium ions in organic solvents, the ions are held in a non-flammable polymer matrix. Caleb's unique electrodes activation process and direct coating method increase the polymer stability and the overall battery performance.
Although Lithium-poly batteries have advantages compared to Lithium-ion batteries, the polymer electrolytes have poor ionic conductivities (between 10-6 and 10-4 S/cm) and using secondary (rechargeable) lithium ion polymer batteries in electric and hybrid electric vehicles poses significant challenges. Caleb's polymer electrolyte system overcomes this problem exhibiting an ionic conductivity of 5x10-3 S/cm.
Caleb's LinPolyTM manufacturing process yields safe, high quality, high reliability, low cost cells in virtually any shape or size to meet individual application requirements. This unique process includes:
* electrode activation with different electrolyte compositions;
* formation of ionic conductive solid electrolyte interface prior to battery assembly;
* forming of the polymer electrolyte film directly on the electrodes without heat or lamination;
* in-situ monitoring and control of parameters during production;
* high yield, high throughput manufacturing.
The integration of nanomaterials in our technology will yield new electrodes with higher performance. Caleb's development work is focused on new cathodes (with nano Lithium Iron Phosphate) and anodes (with Carbon Nanotubes, nano Tin Oxide, and other nanomaterials) in order to improve the characteristics of our batteries and supercapacitors (ultracapacitors).
With in-house capability to design and produce prototypes for numerous battery sizes and form factors, Caleb's small-volume production line will allow the company to effectively serve the development needs of product designers and engineers interested in novel battery technologies.
Caleb's LinPolyTM process is also adaptable to the existing production lines. Present liquid lithium-ion or lithium-polymer manufacturing plants can be retrofitted to incorporate Caleb's technology.
