SkelStart Engine Start Module uses ultracapacitors to eliminate dead batteries

Skeleton Technologies’ new ultracapacitor-based 24 V Engine Start Module (SkelStart ESM) is designed to ensure trouble-free engine starting in any conditions. Batteries are a major headache in the trucking industry, particularly in cold climates. Long-haul drivers often leave engines idling for long periods to keep batteries charged. Starting failures occur when trucks are not used… Read more »

Freudenberg Group’s new line of Li-ion battery separators

The separator is a critical component of a battery. It provides a barrier between the anode and the cathode while enabling the exchange of ionic charge carriers from one side to the other. For over 40 years, the Freudenberg Group has been producing separators for nickel-based batteries, such as the nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) cells widely… Read more »

Harley-Davidson’s Chief Engineer on the development of Project LiveWire

As Harley-Davidson tours America testing the waters for its prototype electric motorcycle, LiveWire, early riders like what they see and hear. For decades, few names have been as synonymous with traversing the American landscape as Harley-Davidson. After 111 years, Milwaukee, Wisconsin’s Harley-Davidson Motor Company has survived many ups and downs, including outlasting the Great Depression,… Read more »

VIDEO: Exploding batteries? Not with Porous Power’s new battery separator

A separator is a critical component of any lithium-ion battery, keeping the electrodes apart and avoiding disaster. Porous Power Technologies, profiled in the current issue of Charged, was formed around a new microporous membrane material designed specifically for use as a lithium-ion battery separator. A new video makes the point more eloquently than any technical… Read more »

Porous Power’s new microporous membrane will boost Li-ion battery performance

Q&A with Bernard Perry of Porous Power Technologies. In 2006, Porous Power Technologies was formed around a new microporous membrane material designed specifically for use as a lithium-ion battery separator. At that time, most battery separator materials were originally intended for other applications and adapted when the lithium-ion market began to develop. The company’s founders saw an… Read more »
