Contour Energy Rolls Out New Coin Cells
Azusa-based Contour Energy, the battery technology firm based on technology licensed from Caltech, announced this morning that it has debuted a new line of coin cell batteries based on its technology. The firm said it has introduced a new coin cell family which uses its Fluorinetic technology, which it says delivers "significantly longer" battery life and better energy density than both primary lithium and rechargeable lithium ion batteries. The firm said the batteries are in the 2032, 2025, 2016 & 2450 sizes. Contour Energy is applying the use of carbon-flouride battery technology into a wide range of battery applications; the firm has significant backing from venture firms CMEA Capital, Harris and Harris, Schlumberger and US Venture Partners. Contour Energy said the new batteries will be commercially available in Q2.
