mPhase Technologies, Inc. (mPhase) has completed the testing of improved and cost efficient manufacturing technique to produce Smart NanoBattery. The new manufacturing technique will lead to higher yields when the battery is mass produced. The testing has shown that the company will be able to yield a very high percentage of the complex silicon based electrowettable membrane once in mass production.

The electrowettable reserve battery is being developed under a US Army research grant as a long-term continuous power supply for computer memory backup and potential wireless sensor applications.

The silicon based electrowettable membranes are key components of the Smart NanoBattery during each round of production.

The ability to maximize the number of usable silicon based electrowettable membranes is critical to the overall profitability of the company.

This breakthrough reaffirms my confidence in the future of the Smart NanoBattery, said mPhase CEO Ron Durando. With this accomplishment, we have significantly reduced the manufacturing risk involved in this product. Now it’s just a matter of fitting all the pieces together as we continue with the project and reach the end result of a sales contract with the United States Army.

The Smart NanoBattery is being developed as part of the Phase II STTR Grant that was awarded by the United States Army in 2008. Upon completion of the development project, mPhase will actively pursue sales contracts with major government organizations, as well as companies that require a battery for industrial applications such as wireless sensors.
