How It Works

Problems We Solve

With adaptive charging, safety checks are performed hundreds of times each charge cycle. This provides a mechanism to spot and address failing cells before they become a safety hazard.

Consumers crave thin and light mobile devices, yet want more capacity and daily use at the same time. Higher energy-density cells are the answer, but battery lifespan suffers with traditional charging. Qnovo adaptive charging results improve as energy density increases, enabling the highest energy-density cells to reach cycle life targets.

Fast charging normally accelerates cell damage, resulting in significant lifespan reduction as the charge rate increases. Qnovo adaptive charging mitigates cell damage, enabling batteries to last longer - even when fast charging.

In-the-field cycle life variation  increases significantly as charge rate goes up. By nature of Qnovo’s adaptive approach, cycle life distribution is decreased in a statistically meaningful fashion, ensuring all consumers see similar battery lifespan results. CCCV or step charging are unable to reduce cycle life variation by their non-adaptive nature.

Adaptive charging normalizes lifespan performance, within cell families and battery packs as well as across vendors. This opens the possibility of cell multi-sourcing, with the dual advantages of lower cost batteries and reduced supply risk.

Thin devices require cells that meet tight swelling tolerances. In fact, cells may exceed thickness requirements due to swelling well before they reach cycle-induced capacity exhaustion.

Battery issues are one of the top mobile device return categories, and a source of continued consumer frustration and significant cost to both manufacturers and mobile carriers. Qnovo analytics, an option to Qnovo adaptive charging, offers unique predictive insight into the battery's future health, which enables a more proactive approach to managing battery-related returns for improved consumer satisfaction and lower costs.
