US researchers have sent out their assurance that the key materials that make up lithium-ion batteries are likely to have sufficient supply to meet the anticipated long-term demand — so long as we start planning now.
US scientists have created what they describe as an 'air-breathing battery' — powered by sulfur, air, water and salt — that can store twice as much energy as a lead-acid battery.
RECOM has developed two isolated 1 W DC/DC converter series, RP-xx06S and RxxP06S, offering an output voltage of 6 V.
US researchers have developed a lithium-ion battery that uses a water-salt solution as its electrolyte, without the fire and explosive risks associated with some commercially available non-aqueous lithium-ion batteries.
Developers of multicell, USB Type-C products that need high current, dual input and I²C support now have a flexible option with the MAX77756 24 V, 500 mA, low quiescent current (Iq) buck converter from Maxim Integrated.
LG Chem has introduced the RESU series to the Australian market, offering users high- and low-voltage battery options that give home owners the ability to self-consume solar-generated energy throughout peak electricity times after sunset.
US engineers have developed stretchable fuel cells that extract energy from sweat, which they can use to power electronics such as LEDs and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) radios.
Phoenix Contact now offers PV sets that combine two MPP (maximum power point) trackers for surge protection.
Researchers have solved what is said to be one of the biggest stumbling blocks preventing zinc-air batteries from overtaking conventional lithium-ion batteries as the power source of choice in electronic devices.
RECOM recently introduced a 2 W DC/DC converter series specially designed to power the latest generation of SiC MOSFETs.
Researchers from Fudan University have engineered bendable batteries, suitable for implantation in the human body, which can run on body-inspired liquids such as a normal IV saline solution and a cell-culture medium.
