Builds on adaptive charging software that already reduces battery
incidents by a factor of 100, while adding a year of healthy battery life
NEWARK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Qnovo, the leading innovator of software to enhance battery performance,
today announced the launch of its Battery Health and Safety Platform,
which adds a safety intelligence layer to its adaptive charging software
stack that is already in use in 50 million devices.
The Battery Health and Safety Platform will make decisions and
predictions about battery health and safety, combining chemical-level
analysis with algorithms and computation to not only keep smartphone
batteries healthier for longer, but also avoid potentially catastrophic
battery failure events.
Through a cloud management dashboard, smartphone manufacturers can
analyze battery health of all their devices at once. This will allow a
manufacturer to rapidly assess whether devices in public use are
performing as expected – and will help manufacturers avoid failure
events before they reach widespread scale.
The Battery Health and Safety Platform is a new layer of software
intelligence that builds on Qnovo’s adaptive
charging software, which analyzes and diagnoses battery health in
real time and adjusts battery charging accordingly. The adaptive
charging software is in use in 50 million devices from leading
manufacturers such as LG and Sony (full list of active devices can
be found on Qnovo.com). In two years of real-world use, Qnovo’s
software has demonstrated incredible results: battery life in devices
that use Qnovo’s technology have added as much as a year of life to the
battery while demonstrating an exceptional battery safety record.
“On the 50 million devices that use our adaptive charging software,
99.9999% will experience fantastic battery health and safety,” said
Nadim Maluf, Qnovo CEO. “However, in our view, if even one battery in a
million is failing, that is not good enough. Our Battery Health and
Safety Platform is looking for the needle in the haystack. Similar to
cybersecurity, battery health and safety is best managed through a
layered, intelligent system where each new layer builds on, and is
strengthened by, the layers beneath.”
The Battery Health and Safety Platform funnels battery data and metrics
into a user-friendly digital dashboard, which allows a manufacturer or
carrier to identify at-risk devices in the field while preserving the
privacy of end users. Manufacturers will be able to provide consumers
with clear indicators via alerts and a companion app, allowing them to
monitor their battery health for overall performance and safety concerns.
Qnovo is reinventing one of the most basic foundations of energy storage
and mobility – the battery and how it is charged. Qnovo develops
patented adaptive charging algorithms and battery data analytics that
improve lifetime battery performance with enhanced health and safety. By
augmenting battery chemistry with computation and learning software,
Qnovo enables batteries to safely charge faster, with more daily use and
longer lifespan. Learn more about lithium-ion batteries by following our blog.
