NEC Develops New Organic Battery

NEC has developed a new organic battery with power densities much higher than lithium-ion batteries but at a much lower cost, and with a longer lifespan. The battery has a substantially lower energy density, however, and so it reminds me a bit of the supercapacitors I mentioned back in January. The applications being cited for this product include emergency shutdown power for laptops.
