January 21, 2009: mPhase Technologies Inc. announced in a news release that a recent breakthrough that will allow the company to produce its Smart NanoBattery with a much greater cost efficiency has successfully passed rigorous testing.
The company said its improved manufacturing technique will lead to higher yields when the battery is mass produced. The electrowettable reserve battery is being developed under a U.S. Army research grant as a long-term continuous power supply for computer memory backup and potential wireless sensor applications.
The ability to maximize the number of usable silicon based electrowettable membranes, which are key components of the Smart NanoBattery during each round of production, is critical to the overall profitability of the company. The recent successful testing has shown that mPhase will be able to yield a very high percentage of the complex silicon membrane once in mass production, the company said.
