Abstract:

Reduce the logistical costs associated with the deleterious effects of long term storage of rechargeable lithium based batteries. The self discharge characteristics of rechargeable batteries necessitates monitoring to prevent permanent damage and attendant replacement cost. Utilize RFID technology to build a wireless system to monitor individual battery"s charge condition. Develop a portable integrated storage system that provides inductive battery charging capability, controlled by a software application utilizing a database of battery specific charge, temperature and voltage limitations. This system would raise the stored batteries from an as delivered 50% charge capacity, to 100% charge in preparation for delivery to users. Integrate the storage system into cargo shipping container that provides physical security and integrity in the event of an overcharge condition and power to the storage system.
