Kickstarter Lithium Personal Battery Backup System September 14 2015, 0 Comments

 

 

Battery Backup Power, Inc. is raising capital to launch its Lithium uninterruptible power supply (UPS)/personal battery backup system product lineup in the United States after testing and negotiating with part suppliers. Funds raised will initially go to producing the first 500 units with standard NEMA 5-15 receptacles (sockets required to power most consumer electronics in the United States) as well as UL testing and certification. The first units produced will be portable 500 watt maximum, 1,000 watt surge, 26 amp hour systems. The high amp hour rating of the Lithium battery/batteries will mean that electronics can be run for hours on battery power as opposed to just minutes. Lithium batteries are significantly lighter than Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries typically found in UPS systems and typically last over 2,000 discharge/charge cycles (5.47 years if used every single day). Current Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries typically only last around 300 discharge/charge cycles (0.82 years if used every single day). Battery Backup Power, Inc. is dedicated to continued research and development in green technology and green energy storage with a focus on putting it in the hands of consumers.
