Panasonic Next Gen. Silicon Anode Li-Ion Batteries to be launched in 2012

Panasonic announced yesterday they would start the volume production of the new rechargeable lithium ion batteries intended for use in Notebook PCs in the fiscal 2012.

The new batteries are equipped with the next-generation material Silicon (Si) alloy in anode and offer a capacity of 4.0Ah which is reportedly %30 higher than the largest capacity (3.1 Ah) of any cell of that size. Currently the material that is most commonly used in anodes is graphite and that reportedly allows 11% of annual rate of capacity rise compared with the 18% that the new material Si alloy will offer.

By the way, We feel the need to make a little correction here as the new batteries had been introduced back on December 25, 2009 rather than yesterday at the press conference unlike Crunchgear rather seems to have mistakenly interpreted.
