Caleb’s technology allows safe batteries, supercapacitors, and power systems design for a wide range of applications:
Hybrid and Electric Vehicles became the driving force in the auto market. Caleb’s proprietary LinPolyTM technology enables the next generation of “green vehicles” by providing a flexible battery design that utilizes efficiently the body of the electric vehicle. Our safe Fabric Battery could be built-in the vehicle’s body making this approach very attractive for Hybrid and Electric Trucks and Buses, and Commercial Aircraft (More Electric Aircraft Systems program) as well. In both civil and military aircraft, batteries provide power to Emergency Distress Beacons and Lighting, Ventilation, Hydraulic, and Back-up systems. Next generation of High-speed Trains might benefit also from our technology together with the asset-tracking systems that allow rail companies to manage their resources.
Grid Energy Storage
Grid energy storage is a collection of methods used to store electrical energy on a large scale within an electrical power grid. Electrical energy is stored during times when production (especially from intermittent power plants such as renewable electricity sources such as wind power, tidal power, solar power) exceeds consumption, and returned to the grid when production falls below consumption.
A huge commercial market would be the upcoming Wearable Electronics. Caleb’s Fabric Battery could be embedded into clothes to power gadgets which become more power-hungry and are in tremendous need for a safe battery. Other consumer electronics markets include: Notebook and Netbook Computers, Mobile Phones, Digital Cameras, Power Tools, Camcorders, PDAs, Electronic Toys, Hovercrafts, iPods, iPads, MP3 Players, Portable CD and DVD Players, Gaming Platforms, Portable Internet Appliances, Natural Energy Storage, Microelectromechanical Machines, Smartcards, Battery-assisted RFID (radio-frequency identification) Tags, Real-Time Clock Backup Batteries, Personal Alarms, GPS Devices, Portable WiFi, Radios, Test Instruments, Grid Management Systems.
Communications and Space
