Battery Power for Consumer Electronics Conference
March 27-28, 2019
Exponent will be attending the Batter Power for Consumer Electronics Conference March 27-28, 2019 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

OEM's requirements for safe, lower cost and higher energy density batteries for portable electronic devices continue to exponentially increase. These increased requirements have created significant market opportunities for battery developers. This conference will focus on the latest technological advancements in portable power for such devices as smart phones, wearables, tablets, laptops, medical devices and power tools. The conference presentations will provide an in-depth analysis of emerging new and improved chemistries, design, and engineering for advanced battery development. In addition, an examination of the latest charging technologies and advances in safety will be addressed. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to network with the complete battery development ecosystem, from principal scientists to device manufacturers.

Dr. Alexandra Emly, Managing Engineer in Exponent’s Materials and Corrosion practice, will present, “Differences in Evaluating Cell Quality When Downsizing Capacity.”

Lithium-ion batteries are gaining a stronghold in the wearables market for their energy density and light weight. Although the lower energy also correlates with potentially less catastrophic failures, lower energy also means that out-of-the-box tests used for evaluating safety of larger lithium-ion cells don’t work well in accurately evaluating cell safety. This talk will discuss differences to consider when sourcing and vetting small lithium-ion cells.
