Lithium Ion Capacitors(LIC's) play a vital role in IoT devices as it is used to store and release the charge to support the high pulse current which traditional Li-SOCl2 bobbin batteries are not capable of supporting such high currents. When LiSOCl2 Bobbin cells are combined with Lithium ion capacitors, capacitors act as pulse helpers, providing the high power required by IoT devices during the transmission's of the data. Elecorev, a leading battery provider in India, offers a range of capacitors with there LiSOCl2 battery ranging from 1200mah to 19000mah capacity, providing a hybrid battery solution to effectively power IoT projects.
The LiSOCl2 battery range was introduced by Elecorev in the year 2019 to address the evolving needs of smart devices that demand higher power pulse capabilities, wider operating temperature ranges, and longer lifetimes. The range combines Elecorev's reliable and low self-discharge Li-SOCl2 cell technology with a carefully designed LiC (Lithium-ion Capacitor) as a pulse helper. Over time, Our capacitor range is expanded with Li-SOCl2 battery with different LIC options to accommodate the diverse specifications of customers and based on different communication protocols i.e. GSM, GPRS, 2G, 3G, 4G and other communication modules which require higher pulse currents.
Passivation, the formation of a Lithium Chloride layer on the anode, is a common phenomenon in Li-SOCl2 cells. While passivation protects the cells from self-discharge and ensures long shelf life, it increases the internal resistance of the cell. This can cause low voltage readings initially, leading to delays in current delivery. To circumvent this issue, Elecorev incorporates capacitors, supercapacitors, or lithium capacitors in parallel with the cells. These capacitors store charges and help increase the necessary voltage, preventing any delay in current delivery. The capacitance, measured in Farads (F), determines the amount of electric charge carried by the pulse helper.

Elecorev offers a wide variety of capacitors to cater to different customer needs. Initially, Elecorev introduced the LIC 20F and 40F featuring an electro-chemical double layer for applications like water meters that require regular transmission at low temperatures (-30°C to +60°C). However, this solution has limitations at high temperatures due to leak current. Recognizing the need for higher capacitance pulse helpers, Elecorev introduced the LIC1020 80F, which utilizes a lithium capacitor offering better stability at medium temperatures (-20°C to +70°C).
Furthermore, Elecorev introduced the LIC0813 20F, catering to applications requiring lower pulses at temperatures ranging from -60°C to +85°C.
Elecorev LIC’s range covers a wide range of applications, including water, gas, and heat meters, IoT sensors for indoor and outdoor use (such as smart parking and smart agriculture), and asset tracking. The range is available in different cell sizes, from AA to D, and offers stability and quality solutions for diverse customer requirements.
For customer-specific needs, Elecorev is capable of developing customized solutions. These solutions can include different capacitors, their location within the battery, plug and play options using connectors or soldering, and the ability to assemble multiple cells in series or parallel.
Elecorev ensures the quality and performance of their LIC range by subjecting 100% of the pulse helpers and final Elecorev’s Li-SOCl2 batteries to rigorous testing. This guarantees that they meet the required standards in terms of pulse delivery once assembled.
Our products now provide a channel of choice in the market for some of the world's leading manufacturers and The track record of Elecorev batteries exemplifies their reliability, making them the preferred choice in each technology.
