About SLBABOUT

ABOUT ”SLB”

"SLB” series are “Small Li-Ion Rechargeable Batteries” with high safety which utilize lithium titanate (LTO)
for the negative electrodes, realizing
(1) High-rate rapid charge/discharge performance,
(2) High-density input/output that is approaching that of capacitors,
(3) Long life of more than 25,000 charge/discharge cycles at 10C rate, and
(4) Low temperature characteristics enabling operation even at -30℃.

CASE STUDY

CASE01

Stylus Pen

NICHICON CORPORATION's SLB Series of Small Li-Ion Rechargeable Batteries have been adopted for use on the stylus pens (“S Pens”) of the Galaxy Note10 and Note10+(released in 2019,) as well as the Galaxy Note20 and Note20 Ultra (released in 2020) by Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.

CASE02

Environmental sensor

In recent years,  in an IoT society where everything is connected to the network, everything will require a power supply, and in some cases, power supply wiring and battery replacement may be difficult.
Given these circumstances, energy harvesting technologies that convert energy from light, heat, vibration and radio waves into electricity are being developed. Small, long-life rechargeable batteries able to store and repeatedly discharge energy in high frequency cycles are desirable.
