Experiments demonstrated the atypical behaviour of the E-Technology versus batteries:

  • More a current than a voltage generator
  • During charging and use: natively, the device can be supplied with different voltages and currents to recharge. This also applies to discharge, – all within power limits and in certain intervals for currents and voltages
  • Unlike batteries, the E-Technology does not depend on redox potential
  • The E-Technology further differs from batteries in that there is no need for a higher charge voltage, nor is a voltage drop observed, when in use
  • The E-Technology process when charging or discharging only generates very marginal, and perfectly negligible heat.
  • Excellent performance or yield (>95%)
  • The minimum number of terminals is 4 (2 each for input and output).  The device is not symmetrical, input and output cannot be swapped.
  • The device may be charged whilst being used
  • The significant specific power (relative to size or weight), both in recharging high charging speed observed) and discharging, is close to that of super-capacitors, therefore unachievable by batteries.
  • Constant output power & voltage during use (discharge operated through several devices of more than 500W plugged to the bench without any fluctuation of the voltage). Such characteristic is simply not conceivable with battery of similar size, nor in the future, whatever the R&D effort undertaken.
  • The amount of energy stored is correlated to size and weight, but contrary to batteries, is not proportional. Doubling the energy stored does not imply doubling the weight and/or volume (additional information is reserved).
  • The energy density in the storage area is very high (additional information is reserved).

Certification by independent third-party laboratory (TRL 6 completed in 2017):

BEE 5, one of the prototypes (a compact and small size model) has been tested by an independent, world renowned and certified laboratory.

The energy density of the pack version of the prototype was tested and compared to a cell version of a “Tesla-like” battery. The E-Technology prototype was certified at 3 times the density (Additional information reserved).

System prototype demonstration in operational environment (TRL 7 completed in 2021):

BEE 6 (of the same model series as the one tested by the laboratory in 2017) has been tested in an operational environment (TRL 7) in February 2021.

The test bench comprised a 1/10th scale model electric car, allowing the comparison of the energy density of the E-Technology prototype to that of a LiPo “Tesla-like” battery. This test, designed in a simple WYSIWYG manner (easy for anyone to understand) and run under the supervision of a bailiff, received positive reviews of members of the scientific community.

Outcome – Not only did the prototype achieve TRL 7, but the performance improvement (energy density) was measured at 5.66 times that of the reference battery (Additional information reserved).

(*): 38.5/0.276 = 139.5 – pack version
(**): (82.81/15.41) x (276/262) = 5.66
5.66 x 139.6 = 789.7 – pack version
