Presentation Summary

  • Infinite Power Solutions is supplying a postage stamp sized, rechargeable energy storage device which accepts packets of charge, tiny or continuous, from badly behaved sources, then delivers high currents which can continually power real applications
  • The cell accepts RF, Photovoltaic and Kinetic Energy, in any combination, from the appropriate passive harvester, directly and using no active components;
  • This charge is accepted and stored near losslessly, with virtually no self-discharge, assuring maintenance-free operation for decades
  • A new Micro Power Module combines passive power management electronics with the THINERGYTM Micro-Energy Cell to efficiently store harvested energy in a compact package
