SCiB™ Cells

The lineup of SCiB™ cells and their characteristics.

Characteristics

SCiB™ rechargeable cells can be categorized into two types: high power and high energy.
The high power cell is suitable for applications requiring the charging and discharging of large current in a short time such as regenerative braking in automotive applications.
The high energy cell is suitable for applications requiring large capacity such as electric vehicles and stationary storage systems.
