ELECTRONIC POWER GENERATIONINITIATIVES
PowerCell is an electron battery: Prototype batteries have demonstrated talk-times of more than 72 hours for cell phones and other communication devices. PowerCell's current research battery design contains an anode and a cathode but it does not employ either an electrolyte, or, any liquid chemical to produce an electrical current.
PowerCell’s battery operates on a different scientific principle in which to generate electrical energy.
Unlike competitive metallic lithium designs that presume to move lithium ions from an anode to a cathode on discharge, and from a cathode to the anode on recharge by two chemical reactions (oxidation and reduction) within the cell, PowerCell’s batteries produce an electronic current that is generated by the potential difference created across its conductive components.
PowerCell’s lithium alloy remains intact and does not degrade as in conventional batteries.
This type of system is referred to work on the “Principle of the Electronic Cell” because charge carriers migrate across the cell structure between the cathode and anode through the host device.
Both the power density equation and the research model confirm that the Principle of the Electronic Cell has the potential to generate power in greater amounts than those batteries based on Faraday’s Law of Electrolysis. In fact, PowerCell’s cell phone battery has a power density of greater than 1000% when compared to the equivalent Lithium-ion battery.
