Change the World with Batteries
The Internet of things (IoT) is ready to be integrated into our society in the near future through the development of high-performance electronic devices, sensors and wireless technologies. As this trend accelerates, we will co-exist with various artifacts far beyond our preparations and imagination.
The realization of such an advanced IoT society will require high-flexibility, low-cost, free-form, high-performance, yet safe batteries. However, current lithium-ion batteries have complicated structure and inefficient manufacturing processes.
In order to solve those problems of batteries, APB is dedicated to providing next-generation lithium-ion batteries called "All Polymer Battery."
Next Generation Lithium-ion Battery
The basic structure of lithium-ion batteries has not changed since they were put into practical use, and there was no drastic solution to problems such as complicated manufacturing processes and risk of fire/explosion.
As the range of application of lithium-ion batteries has been expanded from consumer-use to automotive and industrial-use, APB has pursued “what the batteries should be” and conducted an in-depth review of the parts and raw materials of the batteries.
To realize high-quality batteries, we have developed bipolar structure that current flows across the cell interfaces-perpendicular to the electrode plane, and polymer resin as a basic material.
Through the adoption of such technologies, our All Polymer Battery are characterized by such features as high reliability, high energy density, high flexibility in size and shape, and innovative manufacturing processes at the same time.
