Product lineup

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.

Characteristics of SCiB™ cells

High power type

High power 2.9Ah cell

The compact high power 2.9Ah cell is well suited for applications that require short-time high power charge/discharge, and for applications that require small battery size and light weight.
