It’s a very busy and exciting time here at Creasefield, as we prepare to complete our move to our new premises. We will shortly be able to announce an official moving date, but in the meantime, we thought we would share a few pictures and give you some more information on the move.
When technology talk is dominated by the next new handset, smart watch or operating system, rather more fundamental issues do not always get the airtime they deserve.
Even when an important subject is tackled, such as how we store electrical power in a safe and efficient way, the conversation usually boils down to what type of battery Apple, Google and the rest will choose for their latest consumer device.
Research into a practical application for aluminium in rechargeable batteries is starting to bear fruit, with scientists having built a functional aluminium-ion prototype. Although a young technology, it is hoped that the use of aluminium in rechargeable batteries could be the next step in the commercial and industrial sectors.
The two current drawbacks of the aluminium cell when compared to its lithium-ion counterpart are increased expansion and contraction of the reactive material, which represents a significant challenge for even the most experienced battery pack manufacturer; and a comparative lack of power.
Join us at the Southern Manufacturing Show 2015 in Farnborough, February 10-12th. We’ll be talking about latest developments in the battery pack industry with examples of our products and the solutions we have developed for customers across Europe. We look forward to meeting you there.
The Panasonic NCR18650BF is now in stock. Its the drop in replacement for the difficult to find NCR18650B, Panasonic lithium-ion cell. Call us to discuss your requirements.
The Panasonic Battery Finder App allows quick and easily browsing of their range of batteries. We can help build a custom battery pack using the best cell for your application.
