NEC develops new battery technology

NEC announced it is developing a high-power organic radical battery (“ORB”) that can be used to protect IT equipment from losing data during power supply interruption.

The film-packed ORB demonstrates a maximum power of 35-watts and its four series connected cells are capable of driving a 140-watt class desktop PC in the event of power supply interruption. NEC said this technology is extremely beneficial not only as an emergency power source for commercial computers and electronic equipment, but also for a variety of equipment such as electrical household appliances.

ORB is a new class of rechargeable battery that uses the electrochemical reaction of organic radical compounds. Environmentally friendly, it could make obsolete the need for energy conversions from AC to DC, or DC to AC.

NEC predicted that built-in-type ORB batteries will significantly reduce data loss during power failures and contribute to achieving greater reliability in information systems.
