Where do we see KeraCel batteries being used?
Ultimately in everything that needs batteries.
Wearable Technology is a category of electronic devices that are hands-free gadgets with practical uses, powered by microprocessors and enhanced with the ability to send and receive data via the internet.
Currently, we are developing batteries for phones and IoT wearables such as smartwatches and fitness trackers. KeraCel batteries will enable phones and IoT wearables to be lighter and last twice as long as with today's batteries.
Electric vehicles (EV) are automobiles that are propelled by one or more electric motors, which uses energy stored in rechargeable batteries.
Electric vehicles will benefit from a 100% increase in driving range by using KeraCel batteries of the same size as today’s batteries. Additionally, the high temperature resistivity will abolish liquid cooling loops for the battery and use air cooling instead, thus providing additional energy efficiency, weight, and cost reduction.
Drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), are an aircraft without a human pilot on board and a type of unmanned vehicle.
Drones and aerial vehicles will benefit from an increased flight time and higher payload due to a 30% reduction in battery weight. CAdditionally components of drones (e.g. the propeller arms, housing parts) could be printed as a battery as well.
Virtual reality (VR) implies a complete immersion experience that shuts out the physical world. Augmented reality (AR) adds digital elements to a live view often by using the camera on a smartphone.
VR/AR headsets and glasses will benefit from lower weight and a 3-4x increase in operating time as KeraCel’s batteries have much more energy and parts of the VR/AR device (temples, housing) can be printed as battery.
