Micro fuel cells have just entered the consumer electronic products market and are likely to see large growth rates in the next five years, according to a new report â€˜Micro Fuel Cells for Handheld Consumer Electronic Products â€“ A Global Industry and Market Analysisâ€™.
Amtex Electronics has developed a customisable battery charger that maintains voltage levels in emergency service and rapid response vehicles.
The electric car has been a dream in the pipelines since the early 19th century but has always seemed out of reach because of battery life, cost and weight. Now a hybrid electric vehicle has been made possible with the development of a long-life battery
Fuel cells are growing rapidly in popularity and the abundance and diversity of research means it can be difficult to stay in touch with new developments.
A method of improving battery power and extending its charge holding capacity has been developed by chemists in Britain.
The TSU-350H-1 is a 350 W power supply that has been developed for a range of telecommunications and ITE equipment. It can operate as a standalone unit or be mounted within end-user equipment. Powered by universal AC mains, the supply provides a nominal 13.8 VDC at up to 25 A for powering equipment and charging batteries. Features include protection against short-circuit, overload, input overvoltage protection, output overvoltage protection and overtemperature, to guard against any faults that could harm equipment that is connected to the unit.
Premier Batteries commenced business in 1986 in a small factory unit at Chipping Norton. Today they have grown, changed direction, moved to larger premises and evolved to be the largest local manufacturer of two-way radio batteries in Australia
MIT scientists have harnessed the construction talents of tiny viruses to build ultra-small â€˜nanowireâ€™ structures for use in very thin lithium-ion batteries.
