Some new lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery applications developed by Taiwan’s largest hi-tech research and development institute have attracted interest at the world’s largest battery exhibition in Japan, according to the institute.

The Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) said in a statement Thursday that it debuted a heavy-duty motorcycle battery, emergency backup power supplies and motor power batteries, based on its self-terminated oligomers with hyper-branched architecture (STOBA) battery technology, at the ongoing 5th International Rechargeable Battery Expo.

STOBA is a material technology developed by ITRI and is used to enhance battery safety. The technology won the R&D 100 Award in Energy Devices in 2009.
