Ultracaps: The Future of Batteries Might Not Be Batteries: Ioxus has created an ultracapacitor module that wil...

Ioxus has created an ultracapacitor module that will relieve its customers of the work of harnessing ultracap cells. A proprietary set of Ioxus technologies balances cell performances within the module. “It’s like having multiple horses pulling a sleigh and all the horses pulling in the same direction,” Ioxus CEO Mark McGough explained. Better than any such effort to date, according to McGough, Ioxus power electronics technologies harness ultracaps and balances the cells with lower equivalent series resistance, which he said translates to lower heat generation and higher power output. Ultracapacitors, McGough explained, are “higher powered than any battery and charge more rapidly than any battery. You can charge our product fully in a matter of seconds.” Ultracaps also, according to McGough, have “a much higher cycle life than a battery. They can be cycled a million times,...
