Advantages

Research suggests that the battery will have a power density per kilogram at room temperature, just below lithium-ion batteries and when developed further, could offer an improvement over the power density of lead-acid batteries. And, since the Vendum battery will be composed mostly out of cellulose, it will not require the harmful lead-acid combination, eventually it could power medical implants without the fear of harming a patient's body.

The battery will be able to operate within a broad range of temperatures. The super-capacitor portion of the device will function at a temperature range from -78°C (-108F) to 150°C (302F), in comparison to conventional super capacitors -40°C (-40F) to 85°C (185F) range.

Universities and research institutes involved in development of carbon nanotube batteries have experimented and cooled them down to about -195°C (-319F), at which temperature it ceases to function. But when the temperature was increased back to within the operable range, the battery continued to operate as effectively as before.

The cells contain no caustic chemicals, and cannot overheat, explode, or cause burns or electrical shock. They are non-toxic and non-flammable and can therefore be freely shipped, stored, and disposed of after use.
