The repurposed 2 kWh units could be used in developing countries or isolated communities, with enough energy to power a small shop, farm holding or multiple residential homes.
Pliable, textile-based solar cells could enable truck tarps to produce the electricity consumed by the driver when underway, or to power electronic systems used to locate trailers in shipping terminals.
Adding a third ingredient to the light-capturing layer of an emerging solar cell technology can significantly improve all aspects of its energy-harvesting performance, according to researchers.
KIT researchers have produced electrodes for lithium-ion batteries at what they claim to be record speed, while also improving the quality of the electrodes and reducing production costs.
Solar cells and light-sensing technologies could be made more efficient by taking advantage of an unusual property that results from deformations and defects in their structures.
Korean researchers have developed a new strategy for extending sodium-ion batteries' cyclability, using copper sulfide as the electrode material.
The 3 W series offers both 4:1 and 2:1 ultrawide input voltage ranges, in surface mount and DIP mounting, with 1500 VDC isolation voltage and efficiencies up to 83%.
The use of inductive charging, while highly convenient, risks depleting the life of mobile phones using typical lithium-ion batteries.
Researchers used X-ray computed tomography to visualise in real time how cracks form near the edges of interfaces between materials in solid-state batteries.
A newly created formula more than doubles the energy a battery can carry without changing the weight, according to its designers.
The ADEL System range of DIN rail mount DC UPS power supplies incorporate a DIN rail mounting switchmode power supply and UPS controller into a single unit. Users can also buy a maintenance-free battery pack and holder to create a fully integrated UPS solution.
Schneider Electric has introduced the Galaxy VS — an efficient, modular, easy-to-deploy, 10–100 kW, three-phase uninterruptible power supply (UPS) designed to meet the critical power requirements of IT, commercial and industrial facilities.
Hong Kong researchers have developed a 'Textile Lithium Battery' that offers a stable, durable and safe energy supply for wearable electronics.
