BroadBit has developed a novel low-cost, high-performance, robust, eco-friendly, scalable sodium chloride (table salt) battery technology. BroadBit is commercializing the technology for applications in electric vehicles, portable electronics and grid stabilization. In addition to sodium chloride, the other key ingredients of the battery are cheap and abundant silicon oxide (sand), carbon (coal) and sulfur (waste product of petrolium refining). BroadBit believes that, with its innovations, it can grow the rechargeable battery market from today's 60B$ to greater than 1T$ in the coming decade.
Compared to Li-ion, BroadBit offers:
- 50% higher energy stored per unit cost
- 25% higher energy per unit weight
- Better environmental friendliness, scalability and sustainability
- Simpler manufacturing than Lithium-ion (fewer steps, no need for inert environment)
- Higher Safety (no flammable electrolyte and reduced risk of shorting)
- Improved robustness:
- can withstand rapid temperature cycling between -20 and +60 C,
- can be repeatedly fully discharged and restarted without damage,
- can be safely overcharged without explosion or damage and
- are non-flamable

CAP-XX provides peak power support to 3V coin cell batteries and eliminates need for 2.7V LDO regulator for less expensive, smaller, more energy-efficient designs with extended battery life
CAP-XX is a leader in supercapacitors that deliver peak power to support or replace batteries, announced at the IDTechEx Show! Berlin 2018 that it has developed the industry’s first 3V thin, prismatic supercapacitors. The company will deploy its 3V technology first in thin prismatic form to meet demand for small, inexpensive, energy-efficient power solutions for thin wearables, key FOBs and other IoT devices. CAP-XX will then integrate the 3V technology into its larger prismatic supercapacitors, automotive modules and other products for high-energy, high-power applications.

Veger shows some of their new high power 45W and 18W power banks that can fast charge up to laptops like a macbook using USB Type-C Power Delivery (PD). Veger also has some new wireless power banks, high capacity 18000 very compact power banks and more. You can also see my previous Veger Power bank factory tour videos here part 1 and part 2.
At the IDTechEx Show, IDTechEx Technology Analyst Dr Lorenzo Grande discusses battery innovation with Dr Giuseppe Antonio Elia, senior researcher at the Technical University of Berlin. Dr Elia is an expert in unconventional battery chemistries, like lithium-air, aluminium-sulphur, and magnesium-ion batteries.
Part1 was seen by over 365 thousand people here. VEGER manufactures over 1 million Powerbanks per month (not only in this floor, they have another floor too) in their factory in Xixiang, Shenzhen, China. VEGER develops their industrial design, mechanical design, production line including assembly, testing, printing, packing etc. Some of their Power banks with 5000mAH start at $3 for MOQ 1K.
Via Labs shows their USB Hub and controller which is in the Nintendo Switch docking station and they show how they make similar hubs for other types of devices as well. The Nintendo Switch uses VLI’s Hub controller (VL210 USB 3.0 1x SS, 3x HS Hub controller) lasts 2.5-3 hours undocked when playing games. In order to extend the playing games time for better gaming experience, VLI has developed an intelligently exclusive turnkey as below:
All-In- One Technology Demonstrator
- Standard USB-C Power Bank: VP242 (USB-C Power Bank DRP Controller)
- USB PD Wall Adapter: VP300 (USB PD Wall Adapter)
- Switch Docking Station: VL212 (USB 3.1 Gen 1 PD Hub (1x SS, 3x HS))
- VP230/VP231 (TCPC for UFP/DFP)
