Enable IPC Ultracapacitor Exceeds 1 Million Cycles
VALENCIA, CA | Posted on December 18th, 2007
Enable IPC Corporation (OTCBB: EIPC) announced today that its ultracapacitor technology has matched or exceeded the cycle life of commercially-available devices.
"As a point of reference, many rechargeable batteries have a useful life in the 1000s of cycles," explained researcher Kevin Leonard, one of the inventors of the Enable IPC ultracapacitor. "That is, you can charge and discharge them at most a few thousand times before they are no longer useful.
"Ultracapacitors, on the other hand, can generally be charged and discharged hundreds of thousands of times. In our laboratory testing, on the morning of December 13th, our ultracapacitor surpassed 1 million cycles while still maintaining over 80% of its initial capacity, which matches some of the best performance reports we've seen in ultracapacitor life cycle testing."
The company is continuing the testing to determine how many cycles the devices can withstand.
Enable IPC CTO, Dr. Mark Daugherty, said, "We are very pleased with the pace of our ultracapacitor development. We've met our performance milestones and are actively developing exciting new applications to take advantage of these recent improvements."
Separately, Enable IPC recently announced that they had completed and signed the final license agreement with the University of Wisconsin, exclusively securing the ultracapacitor technology for consumer and industrial applications for the useful life of the patent.
