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.
