mPhase Technologies Completes Functional Prototype of its Lithium Reserve Battery
(Nanowerk News) mPhase Technologies, Inc. today announced that it has completed the first functional prototype of its Lithium Reserve Battery that will function in the AlwaysReady Emergency Flashlight. The prototype is the first time the mPhase battery technology has come together in a "ready for production" prototype.
The mPhase Lithium Reserve Battery stores energy until it is literally "turned on." It is manually activated by a unique triggering mechanism that rapidly releases and distributes the liquid electrolyte inside the battery. The electrolyte immediately contacts the solid electrode materials to produce 3 volts. The reserve battery is perfect for backup power and emergency applications. With a shelf life of over 20 years, the mPhase Lithium Reserve Battery will allow the AlwaysReady Emergency Flashlight to function as a reliable emergency light source in countless situations.
"The completion of a 'first of its kind' manually activated lithium reserve battery is essential to a timely launch of the AlwaysReady Emergency Flashlight and marks a major achievement," said mPhase CEO Ron Durando. "This prototype has been carefully designed to ensure reliability when power is absolutely needed."
