What is the Difference?

While this sounds like good stuff - I am a little confused. It seems a new line of batteries are being introduced with the claim that the technology has been proven to be reliable for 25 years in the field. The new specs look very promising but I am wondering what are the differences between the old batteries with the 25 year service life used in the meters shown on the company website and the new line that is being introduced? Are we still comparing apples to apples here?

Low leakage

I don't know how Tadiran does it, but they've been very successful in making low-leakage batteries that can last as long as 25 years in energy scavenging applications.

Nancy,

Our HLC is used in conjunction with our primary, non-rechargeable lithium cells which keeps it from being totally discharged and therefore never see 5000 cycles.

This is how it can power applications for more than 25 years.

Price is sure to reflect the innovation.

 

Great to see this energy dense tech getting a push to commercialization. Most on the time, boastful battery news comes with the tag, still in development or not available any time soon. Hope to see more energy dense cells in the near future.

Costs?

Good breakthrough.  Are the costs of these new batteries comparible with standard batteries of this type?  (what is the approximate cost increase in %?)

I agree, those are pretty impressive specs., so what's the pricetag and when is release?

Good point, Cabe. Battery performance can be difficult to predict, but this company is well-known for making it happen.

I would love to see their Joule or mAh rating on the AA configuration.

A peek at things to come.
