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:
A1

Abstract:
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.

NOTES:

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.

http://arpa-e.energy.gov/ProgramsProjects/BEEST...>

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

http://arpa-e.energy.gov/LinkClick.aspx?filetic...

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.
