New Recapping Patent Publishes (EEStor Competitor Perks Up)

Porter's apologies.
I had done all the porting work but somehow failed to post it.
So, this isn't "new"


"High energy density electrical energy storage devices

Document Type and Number:

United States Patent Application 20120034528
Kind Code:

High electrical energy density storage devices are disclosed. The devices include electrochemical capacitors, electrolytic capacitors, hybrid electrochemical-electrolytic capacitors and secondary batteries. Advantageously, the energy storage devices may employ core-shell protonated perovskite submicron or nano particles in composite films that have one or more shell coatings on a protonated perovskite core particle, proton bearing and proton conductive. The shells may be formed of proton barrier materials as well as of electrochemically active materials in various configurations.

Tom Villars says, "This is a continuation of the Recapping/Penn State patent application 12/656,463"

Thanks to DeedleTwo. Mark was clearly snoozing.

Porter's comment: hey, hey, hey. No dissing Mark. (Yes. I know. Said with genuine respect and appreciation. Just B's flat humor.)

UPDATE 27 Feb 2012:
I noticed that Recapping has updated their ARPA page with an interesting PDF file.


The program fact sheet now includes a chart that I've never noticed before.


This graph should eliminate any doubt about their intention to create something with energy density greater than lithium ion.

The project terminates June 30, 2012. Every indication I have so far indicates they have been successful in their research....what exactly that entails in detail....is TBD.

Stay tuned.
